Bahamut’s Baseball Steak

“That’s the last eidolon, Bahamut, the Dragon King!  He’ll win for sure!”

Princess Garnet, FFIX


  • 1 10-oz. baseball steak (top sirloin, about 1.5″ thick)
  • ½ tbsp. olive oil
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
  • Garlic powder


Prepare a grill to high heat.  Make sure you have enough room on the grill to cook the meat over direct heat, and then to move it to indirect heat later.

Brush the steak on both sides with olive oil.  Sprinkle with kosher salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Place steak over direct heat and cook, covered, for 4 minutes.  Flip, re-cover, and cook 4 minutes longer.

Move steak to indirect heat and continue to cook an additional 4 minutes.  For medium-rare meat, the internal temperature should reach 135°.

Remove to a plate, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serves 1–2.
