Steak With Lemon Pepper Crust
|T bone steaks||2|
|Garlic||4 Clove (20 gm), minced / crushed through a press|
|Cracked pepper||2 Tablespoon|
1 Preheat the broiler or start the charcoal. If broiling, line a broiler pan with foil.
2 Grate the zest from the lemons, then juice them.
3 Place the steaks in a shallow nonaluminum pan and pour the lemon juice over them. Let stand while you prepare the remaining ingredients and while the broiler or grill is preheating. Turn the steaks over after about 5 minutes.
4 Coarsely chop the scallions. In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest, scallions, garlic and cracked pepper.
5 Remove the steaks from the lemon juice. (If broiling, place them on the prepared broiler pan.) Press half of the lemon-pepper mixture onto the top sides of the steaks.
6 Grill or broil the steaks 4 inches from the heat for 7 minutes.
7 Turn the steaks over and press the remaining lemon-pepper mixture onto them. Grill or broil 4 inches from the heat for 7 minutes for rare; 9 minutes for medium-rare; 11 minutes for medium to well-done.
8 Let the steaks stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
