Cooking time: Approx 45 minutes.

What you’ll need:

  • NY Strip Steak (also known as Porterhouse, Striploin) approx. 500g per steak or a minimum of two inches thick.
  • Seasoning mix – kosher salt, fresh cracked black pepper, brown sugar – 1 part of each
  • Pumpkin – whole or half butternut pumpkin
  • Asparagus spears
  • Jamon (Serrano Ham or Prosciutto) for wrapping
  • Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquets
  • ½ cup bearnaise sauce


Reverse sear Steak Method

  1. Season the steak with the seasoning mix, making sure to generously cover all sides of the steak.
  2. Place the steak on a rack in a preheated barbecue or smoker and gently warm the steak until it reaches 50°C internal temperature.
  3. Have a charcoal briquet flame grill already lit and ready to go just before the steak reaches 50°C.
  4. Quickly transfer the steak over to the flame grill and constantly flip the steak to get an all-over flame grill and remove it from the grill once the steak internal temperature reaches 55-60°C.

Serve with some Jamon wrapped grilled asparagus and low n slow smoked butternut pumpkin with bearnaise sauce on the side.

You can now add New York strip steak to your BBQ repertoire.
