Equipment Needed For This Recipe

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use cups and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American US customary, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, that you can mix cup measurements with weighted measures, but never mix US customary/imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, liters, etc.,).

Step 2 – Marinade Steak: Season the steaks with black pepper and add to the marinade. Turn the steak with tongs a few times to evenly coat.

Step 3 – Heat Grill: Heat an outdoor grill to medium heat, or a grill pan on a stovetop on medium-high.

Step 4 – Cook Steak: Remove steak from the marinade, allowing the excess marinade to drip off. Lightly season with salt and pepper on the first side, if desired, and grill steak for 4-5 minutes.

Recipe Tips

  • Regular olive oil has a higher smoke point than extra virgin olive oil. It is, therefore, recommended over extra virgin olive oil due to the grilling temperature in this recipe.
  • The actual cook time will vary depending on a number of factors, including the internal starting temperature of the steak, thickness, and the desired final cooking temperature.
  • For best results, remove steak from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking and use an instant-read thermometer to determine the level of doneness while cooking.
  • As a general rule of thumb, remove steaks from the grill when they are a few degrees below desired final temperature as they will continue to cook while resting.

Handy Degree of Doneness Chart

  • For rare, the temperature should be 120°F to 125°F (49°C to 52°C), around three minutes per side;
  • For medium-rare is 135°F (57°C), three to four minutes per side;
  • For medium, 140°F to 145°F (60°C to 63°C), four to five minutes per side;
  • For medium-well, 150°F (66°C), five to six minutes per side;
  • And for well-done, 160°F to 175°F (71°C to 79°C), six to seven minutes per side.
