T-bone steak on the barbecue

For four people:

4 T-bone steaks

6 tbsp. olive oil
4 tbsp. red wine
2 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp. mustard
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. oregano
½ tsp. pepper

Crush the garlic and add to a small bowl with mustard, red wine and olive oil. Add the herbs – fresh or dried – lemon juice and pepper. Mix everything well, insert the meat in there and put in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours. The marinade also prevents sticking to the grate.

Rare or well-done – entirely according to taste

The grate needs to be hot already. The ideal equipment has different heat zones. You can get a special aroma with a charcoal barbecue. Grill the meat on both sides quickly on a high heat to give it a real shock! That will see a crust forming with the middle remaining juicy. To finish, put it in a zone where the temperature amounts to around 120 °C. The time required for this depends on how you want the meat done (bloody, rare, pink or well-done).

Practice makes perfect

A T-bone steak is a top-quality piece of beef. Perfectly barbecuing it is a culinary art - the result of which is a true delight for every foodie.

We hope it goes well for you!
