Salt-and-Pepper Rib-Eye


1 2-pound, 1 1/2- to 2-inch-thick, bone-in rib-eye steak
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon coarsely cracked black peppercorns
Vegetable oil, for brushing
Coarse sea salt, to taste

Put the steak on a wire rack set on a rimmed baking sheet. Pat dry with paper towels. Season with ½ teaspoon of the kosher salt per side. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

Pat dry with paper towels. Season again with ½ teaspoon salt per side. Press in ½ teaspoon cracked peppercorns per side so pieces adhere.

Build a two-zone medium-hot/medium-low fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill on high just before cooking, leaving 1 burner on low. Brush the grill grate with oil. Sear the steak over higher heat, flipping once, until nicely charred, 3-4 minutes per side.

Using tongs, lift the steak and sear both edges (the bone side and the fat-cap side) for 1-2 minutes per side to render out some of the fat. Grill the steak to the desired temperature, 14-18 minutes total or until an instant-read thermometer registers 120 degrees for rare (the steak will carry over to 125 degrees, or medium-rare, as it rests.)

Transfer the steak to a work surface and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice against the grain, and season with coarse sea salt, to taste.
