Red-Oak Grilled Rib-Eye Steak


Have you ever plank-grilled a steak? The key is to get a quick sear on the steak before transferring it to a grilling plank to absorb some smoky-woody goodness. We grilled this Rib-Eye on a Red-Oak grilling plank. Steaks (and beef in general) also pair wonderfuly with hickory or cedar.

Soak grilling plank in water for at least one hour.

Preheat grill to High (500Fº).

If using a charcoal grill place the coals on just one side and use the other side only when cooking. (See photo below). If using a gas grill light one side.

Brush the steak with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Place steak on the grill and do not move for 3 minutes.

While the steak is searing preheat the plank by placing it on the grill. After 3 minutes turn the plank over, and place the steak, seared side up on the plank.

Close the grill lid to trap the smoke and cook for about 5 minutes for a medium rare smoked rib eye steak.
