In the kitchen:

  2. Add garlic butter, chopped parsley and tarragon to a small heat proof pan.


At the barbecue:

  1. Prepare the barbecue for direct heat – approx. 200°C. If using a charcoal barbecue, you need ½ of a chimney starter of lit Weber® briquettes.
  2. Put the sear grate in the GBS™ cooking grate and preheat with the lid closed for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Place the steak on the sear grate and grill for approx. 4 minutes on each side, depending on how you prefer your steak cooked.
  4. Once cooked, remove, and allow steak to rest covered and in a warm place.
  5. While the steak is resting, place the garlic butter pan over the heat and simmer for a few minutes.


  • If your grill has a GBS Cooking Grate you can also use the GBS Sear Grate to cook your steak.
