Peppered New York Strip Steak

This recipe is for a spiced up a New York Strip Steak. The secret is to use cracked peppercorns, not ground. The solid pepper flavor is what makes this steak so great. Don’t worry, this is not as hot (spicy) as it may sound.

This recipe serves 4.


  • 4 1-inch thick New York strip steaks
  • 1/4 cup black peppercorns
  • 3 tablespoons lime pepper seasoning
  • salt to taste


1 Place peppercorns in mortar and pestle; coarsely crush until most of the corns are broken (you can use a coffee grinder or food processor for this step).

2 Cover one side of steaks with crushed pepper and press in firmly. Sprinkle with lime pepper seasoning and salt. Turn the steaks over and repeat the same process. Place the steaks in the refrigerator for 3 hours, uncovered.

3 Heat the grill. Brush the grate with vegetable or olive oil, and place steaks over the hottest part of the fire for 3 minutes. Turn the steaks over for another 3 minutes. Move the steaks to a cooler part of the grill and continue to cook until done to your liking.

4 Serve with your favorite steak sauce.
