  • 1 pound bone-in rib-eye steak
  • 8 cracks fresh black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • fresh flat leaf parsley chopped fine for garnish, optional


  • Place the steak on a large plate or sheet tray. Season both sides with the pepper, sugar, Montreal seasoning, and salt. Rub it in with your hands all over until coated evenly. 
  • Sprinkle half of the Worcestershire sauce on one side, flip and add the remaining sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Before grilling, take out of the fridge 30 minutes in advance to come to room temperature. Prepare grill*, cook the steak over high heat for about 5 minutes on each side, make sure to get a very good char on it. Make sure you have a water bottle handy in case you get flare-ups! For medium, pull steak off the grill when the internal temperature reaches 140°F degrees.
  • Place the butter on top of the steak, cover with foil and let rest 10 minutes. Serve with parsley garnish if desired. 


*I recommend a charcoal grill, but a gas grill or indoor grill pan works as well.
