DIRECTIONS

  • Remove the steaks from the refrigerator, rinse under water, pat dry with paper towels and allow to sit at room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Put the fatback, garlic and rosemary into a food processor and blend until it is the consistency of toothpaste.
  • Rub the fat mixture evenly over the meat and season with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.
  • Use a hot, clean, oiled grill and grill the steaks for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side for medium rare.
  • The fillet will cook a little faster than the strip loin. Move the steaks frequently, approximately every 2 minutes or so, for even cooking and a crispy exterior.
  • When the steaks are cooked, take them off the grill and allow to rest for 5 to 7 minutes. The resting allows the blood to circulate and distributes the juices evenly.
  • Serve and enjoy!
