To keep costs down, we opted to buy thick-cut New York strips steaks and cut them in half to mimic the look of the more expensive filet mignons.
Makes 8 servings
4 (1 1/2-inch-thick) New York strip steaks, cut in half
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
Garnish: fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs
Sprinkle steaks evenly on both sides with salt and pepper.
Grill steaks, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 8 to 10 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Garnish, if desired.
