How to Grill the BEST Steaks |I Heart Faces {Beef}


This week over at I Heart Faces the photo challenge is “I Heart BEEF” .  No need for a face this week.   Amy & Angie say……

Whip out those tailgating photos, dad at the grill, a chili cook-off or take a photo of your favorite beef recipe. It’s all about food and we want to see how creative you can get with beef. We especially would love to see your mouth watering beef dishes.

So I thought this would be the perfect time to share something that I picked up in NYC with The Family Dish when we visited Chelsea Market.

First of all……Chelsea Market is AH-MAZING!!  We had a VERY special private tour from Christine of Unilever and her awesome 10 year old son Luc. Luc was so full of knowledge and passion for Chelsea Market, he was THE BEST tour guide…….and check this out, him and his mom even have their own blog together, The Mouths, where they both share their passions for food and cooking.

Want to know more about Chelsea Market?  My good friend Janet was just there this week and took incredible pictures and blogged about it here.

Ok, so back to my story…….while I was there I stopped at and purchased a small jar of Black Truffle Salt at The Filling Station.  As soon as I sampled it in their store, I knew I would LOVE it on steaks!

Last week we bought the most incredible steaks and I seasoned them with my Black Truffle Salt, seasoned salt and cracked black pepper, and grilled those puppies.

I have to say……..I don’t know if it was the steaks or the Black Truffle Salt….but they were THE BEST steaks we’ve had in a long time (ok, other than the incredible, melt in your mouth steak I had in NYC at Todd English’s Ca Va I’m STILL dreaming about THAT steak!)

So, to make a short story L O N G {haha}  The night I grilled our steaks I took a few pictures, and thought this one turned out really cool because of the flames shooting up……do you see the dragon face in the flames?!
