Perfect grilled steak
(Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times)

Total time: 20 minutes, plus tempering and resting times | Serves 4
  • 2 (1-pound) thick-cut boneless rib-eye steaks, prime or choice grade
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Maldon or other coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Step 1Temper the steaks: Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and set aside to come to room temperature, about 1 hour. Blot the steak on all sides with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

Step 2Brush a thin layer of mayonnaise over both sides of the steak. Season each steak on each side with 1 teaspoon Maldon salt, or as desired, along with several grinds of black pepper.

Step 3Heat a gas grill over medium-high heat until hot. Add the steaks and grill for about 3 minutes on one side, then rotate the steaks and grill for another 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the steaks over and repeat, grilling each steak for a few minutes, and then rotating to get good grill marks.

Step 4Check the steaks for desired doneness. Remove the steaks to a cutting board several minutes to give the meat time to rest. Slice and serve.
