A steak is a beautiful thing. It is the pinnacle of grilling and I understand that a good steak doesn't need much help. Lightly season, sear it hot and fast, and dive in. Why do you need a recipe? You need a recipe because there is so much more you can do to get that perfect steak and to add variety to your dinners. These Top 10 Steak Recipes work with the best of the best as well as those less than tender or less than flavorful cuts we call steak. Take a look. I know you will find something fantastic.

The Ultimate Restaurant Steak
Have you ever wondered why the steaks from fancy restaurants are so good? They use a number of tricks to get their steaks seared hot and fast so they can achieve that perfect medium rare internal temperature and still have a thick, caramelized crusty surface. Some restaurants use very expensive broilers to do this and others use the method described here. The secret to the perfect steak is a combination of flavorings and intense contact heat. The perfect way to get this high heat is with heavy metal and by that, a heavy cast iron skillet. So, save yourself the luxury prices and make the perfect restaurant steak at home.
Grilled Tomahawk Steaks
There is nothing more satisfying than one of these gigantic tomahawk rib eye steaks. Purchase two of these bad boys and you’ll be eating leftovers for a week. Usually, this amount serves about 4-5 people unless you’re surrounded by big eaters, then one each will have to do. The spice rub is delicious but simple. I recommend a reverse sear method for this recipe and the use of a charcoal grill. However, a gas grill will work well too.

Grilled Chuck Eye Steaks
Though they are growing in popularity, most people are still unaware of the deliciousness of a grilled chuck eye steak. They are just as tender and rich with beefy flavor as a ribeye steak, but with beef prices on the rise, chuck steaks are a great choice for those on a budget.

Pellet Grill New York Strip
Need a quick and easy New York strip recipe using your pellet grill? Look no further! A simple seasoning rub goes a long way for these steaks. Start with coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper and build from there. I tend to gravitate toward savory additions like garlic and onion, but I will add an herb, like dried marjoram or basil, from time to time.
