These delectable T-Bone steaks are rubbed with a basil-oregano mixture and placed onto the grill. The secret is a hot sear to give the steaks a rich brown color and the perfect crust before finishing them off at a lower temperature. This is important since these are very thick cut steaks.


For the Wet Rub:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh oregano

  • 4 to 5 fresh basil leaves, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon sea salt, to taste

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

  3. For charcoal make a two-layer fire, so you have a hot side and a medium side.

  4. Combine wet rub ingredients and slather onto both sides of steak.

  5. Let steaks sit for a few minutes.

  6. Place steaks on a hot grill and cook for about 2 minutes per side, as long as there are good grill marks.

  7. Reduce heat or move to the medium side of the grill.

  8. Continue grilling for 10 to 12 minutes or until the steaks reach the desired doneness.

  9. Once cooked, remove from heat and let steaks rest for at least 5 minutes.

  10. Serve with your favorite sides. We recommend grilled vegetables.

  11. Enjoy!
