Chef’s Tip: To prepare on gas grill, preheat grill according to manufacturer’s directions for medium heat. Grill steaks, covered, 9 to 12 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally.
Chef's Tip: To broil, place steaks on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 10 to 13 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once.
