What is not to love about a good grilled t-bone steak? This one is topped off with a lemon chive butter and served up under a loaded sweet potato hash with bacon, corn, and peppers and wow is it delicious!
This may be my absolute favorite grilled steak recipes of all time. Everyone loves a good t-bone steak and with the light subtle smoky char from the grill and the lemon butter that is going over the top, I’m pretty sure that this one may be a home run for you too. The Hash will be sure to wow your friends and family and is it fire-roasted to perfection and jam-packed with roasted peppers, corn, onions and bacon. Yup, I even grilled the bacon to give it that extra delicious grill flavor!
The simplicity in the T-Bone steak rub along with the natural flavors in the grilled corn and sweet potato hash makes for the perfect combination. One of my favorite things about this recipe is making the rub and realizing there is so much leftover that can be used on fish, chicken or other cuts of steak. Fire up those grills because it’s time to make this Grilled Recipe!
Making the Sweet Potato Hash Recipe
No matter what, the first thing I do before prepping up any recipe is that I make sure to rinse off the fresh produce, and this hash is no different. You never know what may be on your fruits and vegetables so it’s imperative to give them a good rinse before slicing and dicing. Thanks for Franke and their amazing roller mat, washing large vegetables has never been easier. You simply roll the mat right over your sink and spray away all of the vegetables. In this sweet potato has recipe you’ll be giving the sweet potatoes, green onions and peppers a little hose before slicing them and grilling them.
Once your vegetables are rinsed and sliced then you want to coat them in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. From there this comes together outside on the grill. Before you ask, yes you can absolutely roast these veggies in the oven but you get such an awesome flavor from the grill so I definitely recommend doing it out there. Roast all the vegetables until browned but still al dente, you don’t want them to be mush so the potatoes take the longest to cook so put them down first on the grill and after a little time add on everything else.
It will hold up for a little bit of time so that is why I cook it first before cooking the t bone steak. You’ll also notice from the pictures that the corn that goes into this sweet potato hash was grilled up in its husk. I promise you this is the best way to cook corn. It gets a light char on the outside but the husk allows it to stay so moist and tender right until you shuck it and eat it.
If you’ve never made corn in this way then I highly recommend you giving it a shot! Once everything is grilled, bring it back inside, medium dice everything and toss it together with some fresh rosemary or you can leave it plain!
Ways to Cook Steak
There are absolutely a few different ways to cook this, whether that be flame-broiled or pan-roasted in a cast-iron skillet. Normally I’m all about that pan roast but to me, t-bone steaks are best on the grill because they have the bone in there to help keep everything flavorful and juicy. So if you are wondering how to cook t bone steak, GRILL IT!! If you don’t have a grill then absolutely follow these instructions on how to cook a roasted ribeye steak.
To help in the flavor department I also made a really taste rustic southwest rub that really went wonderfully with the sweet potato hash. I believe rubs can help enhance the flavor of just about any steak but the key is for it to enhance, not mask or overpower. Much like a sauce, a rub should be used to compliment so you have to be gentle with the rub and not completely cake it on there.
How to Grill It
Grilling a t-bone is just the same as grilling any other steak. You want a smoking hot grill, between 450° and 550° and then you want to sear it on both sides until your desired internal temperature is achieved. When I grill I usually cook it for 4 to 6 minutes on 1 side and then maybe only 3 minutes on the second side. The first thing your steak is going to do once it goes on the grill is to stick, so you have to give it time to naturally release from the grates.
You also have to be mindful that you don’t want flames shooting up like crazy or else you can cause your steak to over char and taste burnt. Place your steak on the grill and let it sit, don’t be overthinking it either and trying to move it right away it takes a bit of patience and experience. When it comes to grilling it, it’s going to take some practice so don’t get discouraged if it under or overcooks the first time, just keep trying!
Last but not least, finish off this beautiful t bone steak recipe with a little lemon-chive butter!
