Simple Peppercorn Steak

Active Time: 10 minutes   |   Total Time: 35 minutes   |   Serves Serves 4  |   Watch Video  |  Gluten Free

  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, cracked
  • 2 New York strip steaks (about 1-inch thick; 1 pound each)
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

Let the steaks come to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Crack the pepper using the back of a small skillet until all of the round peppercorns are cracked. Dividing evenly, season the steaks with salt and pepper and rub with the oil.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high. Cook the steaks to desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. (To check the internal temperature of the steaks, insert a meat thermometer through the side to reach the center). Let rest 5 minutes before slicing against the grain.
