It’s the season of smoking and searing, fire and spice, grillin’ and chillin’ and feeling the burn of homemade barbecue sauce passed down through ages of summer celebrations. The backyard grill is an American icon, honored each July by National Grilling Month. This year, Executive Chef John Billings is getting his grill on with one of his favorite, classic Midwest grill recipes – the T-Bone Steak.
As a keeper of the culinary flame, Chef Billings brings skill, imagination and a commitment to authenticity to the grill. Locally sourced meat and vegetables sizzle over the coals, enhanced by chef’s classic marinade with this mouthwatering meat-centric recipe.
“T-Boned” Prairie Supper Club Steak Recipe – Serves 6
- 6 20 oz. Angus T-Bone Steaks
- 1 lb. Olive Oil
- .5 oz. Chopped Garlic Cloves
- .5 oz. Fresh Basil
- .5 oz. Fresh Thyme
- .5 oz. Fresh Rosemary
- .5 oz. Whole Shallots
- .5 oz. Kosher Salt
- .5 oz. Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
- 1.5 Bunches of Italian Parsley
Place all the marinade ingredients into a bain marie. A “bain marie” is essentially a hot water bath. It’s used for cooking delicate foods and is a good technique to create a gentle, uniform heat around the food.
Here’s how to make one: Place all the ingredients into a glass bowl and place the bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir and heat until all ingredients are combined in the olive oil and start to break down from the heat.
Once warmed throughout, pour ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth consistency.
Rub herb marinade onto the steaks, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the steaks onto a char grill and cook to desired temperature. Cut off the New York Strip and filet portions away from the bone. Place the bone into a 350-degree oven and roast for 5 minutes. Cut the New York Strip into three pieces and arrange on the plate with the bone for a whimsical presentation and plating of this “T-Boned” steak!
