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 wonderfully with hickory or cedar.
- 5" x 11" Red Oak Grilling Plank
- 1 12-14 oz. bone in rib eye steak
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Soak grilling plank in water for 15 minutes in hot tap water.
- 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.
*Keep a spray bottle of water nearby to douse any flare-ups!
Close the grill lid to trap the smoke and cook for about 5 minutes for a medium rare smoked rib eye steak.
It's that easy!
