Making a juicy grilled steak recipe isn’t difficult if you know what you’re doing. You will need New York strip steak here, also known as sirloin. It’s known as one of the more flavourful steak options.

How to Choose the Best New York Steak

Before you cook New York steak on a grill, you want to make sure the meat is good quality. Look for a fine grain in the meat and not too much connective tissue.

A tender cut will have very fine muscle fibre clusters that feel soft and be made of a single muscle or no more than a couple in one steak. If in doubt, ask your butcher for something which will be tasty and juicy.

Why Steak with Bacon and Scallions is the Bomb!

There are lots of possible grilled steak topping options to pick from. I love this bacon and scallion topping because it’s so tasty. You need to grill or smoke scallions (green onions) and cook bacon. Add garlic, parsley, cilantro, and lemon juice, as well as the fat rendered off the bacon.

Grilled New York Steak: How to Prepare It

The worst offence you can commit against a steak (well, apart from pouring ketchup on it!) is to cook it from cold.

Steak has to reach room temperature before you cook it. If not, it will seize up on the grill and come out tough! And nobody wants to eat that. For a really juicy grilled steak recipe give it 45 minutes or so on the countertop.

How Long to Grill Strip Steaks

For the best grilled New York steak or in fact any BBQ steak recipe, cooking time is critical. Not enough time isn’t a disaster because you can pop it back on the grill. Too long though and the steak will go tough and dry. Then there isn’t much you can do to redeem it!

This steak with bacon and scallions is best cooked over a direct heat. This means while the steaks are coming to room temperature the grill is heating up. Prepare your grilled steak topping ahead if you like. It will keep until you’re ready to use it.

So to cook New York steak on a grill, you should know how you like your meat. Put the prepared steaks on the grill and cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Flip them over and give them another 2 or 3 minutes.

Press down on the steaks to see if the BBQ steak recipe is to your liking. If the meat is still soft, it’s rare, if it’s part soft and part firm it’s medium and if it’s very firm, it’s ruined. I mean ‘well done’.

Use a meat thermometer if you prefer. The internal temperature should be between 120 and 130 degrees F for medium. As soon as it’s done to your liking, wrap the steaks in foil and let them sit for 10 to 15 minutes. This helps with a juicy result because the meat fibres relax and the juices redistribute throughout the steak.

How to Serve Grilled New York Steak

The steak with bacon and scallions can be served sliced or whole, as you prefer. If you’re slicing it, make sure you cut it against the grain (it will be less chewy like this). You can then serve the BBQ steak recipe hot. Top the steak with bacon and scallions with some fresh chives if you have them.

Ingredients

Grilled Steak

  • 10 Oz. steak 2 New York strip steaks at 5 Oz. each
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 5 Tbsp. whole pepper corns coarsely crushed (reserve ½tsp for the topping)

Bacon Scallion Topping

  • 8 green onions or more if small
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic minced
  • 1/4 Cup parsley chopped
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro chopped
  • 4 Piences bacon Thick cut (at least ¼” thick), sliced into ½” crosswise  
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 Tsp. peppercorns crushed
  • 1/2 Cup chives chopped for garnish

Instructions

  • Season the steaks with kosher salt and crushed peppercorns, let sit in room temperature (not in fridge)
  • Prepare the bacon-scallion topping. Place green onions in a grilling basket, lightly toss in olive oil
  • Place basket over charcoal/wood fire/gas BBQ until soft, wilted, and charred, and place in medium bowl, set aside
  • On a cast iron pan over the grill/BBQ, sauté bacon slices to render down the fat and get a nice caramelization. 7-10 mins, to the point where it’s not chewy in middle and golden brown and crispy on the outside
  • Take bacon slices out of the pan and place into a small bowl. If bacon pieces are still too large, chop parsley and set aside
  • Pour rendered fat into the bowl over the charred scallions and add garlic, chopped parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, ½ tsp of crushed peppercorn, and bacon. Mix well. If there is too little rendered bacon fat, add olive oil. Taste, and add salt if needed. Set bowl of topping aside and get ready to cook the steaks
  • Startup grill/BBQ and place the steaks over direct heat until a caramelized crust has formed, around 3-4 minutes
  • Flip steak and let sear for another 2-3 minutes. Cook to an internal temp of 120-130 degrees F for medium cook
  • Take steaks off the grill/BBQ and let rest wrapped in butcher paper or aluminum foil for 10 minutes to allow all meat fibers to relax and juices to spread all through the meat

Notes

  • Peppercorn should be coarsely crushed. Do not use pepper mill as it will produce very fine pepper (almost a powder). Use mortar and pestle, or grind the whole peppercorn with the back of a cast-iron pan/heavy-bottomed pan. This is to ensure the peppercorn pieces are crushed in large enough pieces for them to be toasted on the grill alongside the steaks
  • If using charcoal or wood grill, place charcoal/wood on one side of the grill. Turn on one side of your grill to the highest heat and the other side on lowest. Hot side should get to 500-600 degrees F
  • Resting the steak allow the meat fibers to relax and let the juices spread all through the meat. There should be very little juice escaping when you slice the steak after resting it for about 10 minutes. Cutting the steaks immediately after they came off the grill will leave the juice on your cutting board instead of inside the meat itself
  • An alternative to thick cut bacon is to use pork belly. Ask a butcher to slice the pork belly in ¼” thick (or up to ½” thick). Slice crosswise as directed and add salt when you sauté them over cast iron pan. It is recommended to leave the skin on, as it gives a contrasting chewy-crispy texture to some of the bacon pieces

Have one side of the grill hot and the other less hot. This means you can cook the steak over the direct heat and finish it off over the indirect heat. You can also cook side dishes such as potatoes or corn on the indirect heat side.
