I love black pepper. The sweet smell alone makes me think of barbecue. Black pepper is fantastic in rubs to boost up the flavors.I made a rub that consists for the most part of black pepper and put it on a t-bone steak to make a beautiful black crust. Then I cooked it to perfection.
- 1 Blender
- 1 T-bone steak or porterhouse steak
- 1 tbsp olive oil
black pepper rub
- 2 tbsp whole black peppers
- 2 tsp whole szechuan peppers
- 2 tsp mushrooms dried
- 1 tsp piment
- 1 tsp juniper berries
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Fire up your grill with 2 zones. A direct and indirect zone. Grill the t-bone on both sides to get some nice grill marks. You don’t need to get the steak to medium-rare just yet. This part is only to get a nice color on the outside of the steak.
- Grind all the ingredients, except for the salt, in a blender. Put a cast-iron skillet over the fire and toast the rub until you smell the fragrances coming loose. Take the rub out of the skillet and add the sea salt.
- Pour a little olive oil over the steak and sprinkle a heavy layer of the black pepper rub on all sides of the meat.
- Stick a thermometer into the side of the steak and place it on the indirect side of the grill. Cook it to a core temperature of about 54°C/129°F.
- Cut the meat of the bone and into thick slices.
