Any Delmonico Steak fans out there?!?! Honestly, I was always super intimidated to buy a Delmonico steak! I have been grilling NY strips and ribeye's for as long as I can remember, but as yummy as that Delmonico steak looked, I was just too scared of the thickness.
I'm all about a good ole thick and rare steak, but the thickness of a Delmonico had me way paranoid that I would end up with chard black steak still raw and moo'ing in the middle. Can we say ewwww?
Then it happened. About a month ago I found a new local spot to buy meat and they always have ridiculously good deals on Delmonico steaks! One Friday while picking up my weekly meat supply, I decided to grab two Delmonico steaks to throw on the grill. I figured at these low prices, if I mess them up, no big deal!
Long story short, I was mad paranoid for no reason! The very first time I Grilled Delmonicos, they did come out a tad bit too rare, but after a month of trial and error, I have my Delmonico Steak grilling method down and ready to pass on to y'all :)
WHAT YOU NEED!
Wrap your plate in tin foil!
Lay your steaks on the tin foil covered plate and let steaks reach room temperature. Once at room temperature, salt and pepper both sides.
Set your grill up for direct high heat. I turn all the burners to high, let the grill preheat for ten to fifteen minutes, then brush the grates clean with my grill brush and turn off any burners I won’t need. Then toss the Delmonico Steaks on the grill.
Set the steaks over direct high heat & close grill. You will want to keep the grill lid closed as much as possible. Grill the Delmonico steak for 3 minutes. Flip the steaks and grill for another 3 minutes. Flip again and grill for another 3 minutes. That is 9 minutes total and 3 flips! At this point,they should be 125°F measured in the thickest point (which is medium-rare). If you want them cooked more, flip the steaks again and cook for another minute (medium – 135°F) to 3 minutes (medium-well 145°, or as I call it, past the point of no return.)
DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!!!!!
Once you take your Delmonico Steak off the grill, let it sit on a tin foil covered plate for 7-10 minutes. Your steak will still be "cooking" and this also gives your steaks juices time to settle! Your favorite 5 star chefs recommend this step, so if you want your steak tasting like theirs, be patient and let that Delmonico Steak sit!
After your Delmonico Steak has sat and the juices have settled, dig in and enjoy!
