CNYEats A Taste of Utica Grilled Steak

by Joanne on February 27, 2011

As you might guess, this is another recipe Ted was able to enjoy from the Taste of Utica book.


Page 105, Grilled Steak, posted by Ticia who writes “Here’s my ex-husband’s (native of Cazenovia NY) excellent preparation of streaks for grilling.”


The Apple Crumbles grill is buried deep under the snow right now so grilling was going to have to take place in the kitchen, stove top.   I usually let Ted prepare his own steaks but I took charge of this one and let him enjoy the results.


Servings:  1 

  • 1 Boneless Strip Steak for grilling (about .65 lb)
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 TBS Dijon mustard
  • Ground pepper to sprinkle on steak
  • Salt to taste

Rub the steak with olive oil.  Coat with mustard.  Dust steak with fresh ground black pepper.  Allow to sit for 15 – 30 minutes.

Grill according to your preference. *Stove top grilling:  Set on high heat. Allow to preheat 5 minutes or until really hot. Add steak to pan and grill 4 to 6 min. per side, depending on thickness of steak and how you like it cooked.

Sprinkle with salt as soon as the steak comes off the grill.


Ted’s taste results:   A lot of flavor.  It was juicy, tender and delicious. So little added to this steak to make it a meal success for the meat eater.  


Who likes Mac & Cheese?  Next week, it’s the Taste of Utica Mac & Cheese bake.  Can’t wait for that one!
