To infuse steaks with a sweet, smoky flavor, our home economists cook them on wood grilling planks. Simple seasonings are all you need.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + soaking Grill: 20 min.
MAKES:4 servings
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + soaking Grill: 20 min.
MAKES: 4 servings


  • 2 maple grilling planks
  • 4 boneless beef top loin steaks (12 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Soak grilling planks in water for 1 hour. Drizzle steaks with oil. Combine the coriander, chili powder, allspice and cayenne; rub over both sides of steaks.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear; remove.
  3. Place planks on grill over direct medium heat. Cover and heat until planks create a light to medium smoke and begin to crackle (this indicates planks are ready), about 3 minutes. Turn planks over. Place steaks on planks.
  4. Grill, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Top loin steak may be labeled as strip steak, Kansas City steak, New York strip steak, ambassador steak or boneless club steak in your region.
