T-bone steaks, a steak-house favourite, are cut across the short loin of beef, the T-shaped bone that separates the smaller round tenderloin from the loin. Also great for this recipe is porterhouse steak, essentially the same cut as T-bone but from the top of the short loin, giving it a larger tenderloin piece.

  • Portion size 4 servings


  • 4 grilling steaks (about 6 oz/175 g each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup zesty barbecue sauce optional
Zesty Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup fancy molasses
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Brush steaks with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on greased grill over high heat; close lid and cook for 5 minutes per side for medium-rare or until desired doneness.

Brush steaks lightly with Zesty Barbecue Sauce just before removing from grill or serve alongside (if using).

Zesty Barbecue Sauce
In saucepan, combine stock, chili sauce, molasses, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, celery seeds, cumin, salt and pepper. Add 2/3 cup (150 mL) water; bring to boil.
