Grilled Sugar Steak
The sugar adds a hint of sweetness and helps create the ultimate charred crust.
Why This Recipe Works
Using a ratio of 4 parts granulated sugar to 3 parts kosher salt, we season the steaks with some of the mixture and let them sit for up to 24 hours to fully season. Right before they hit the heat, we season them again. Moving the steaks around the grill as they cook prevents the sugar from burning. Letting the steaks rest uncovered keeps the crust in place.
