Steak-Out Saturdays at Rittenhouse

by Jason Ruch

Here at Di Bruno Bros. on Chestnut, we like to celebrate a little something called “Steak-Out Saturday” the first Saturday of every month. What is this special day? To put it simply, we select a steak of the month and offer it to customers as a buy-2-get-1-free deal. With the grilling season upon us, this past weekend was our biggest Steak-Out of the year.

Last month we featured the New York Strip Steak. Not a chef? Cooking the NY Strip is easier than you think. Here is our favorite way to do this steak on the

Fire up your grill on high for at least 15 minutes until it reaches its hottest point (about 450˚), this is important for searing the outside of your steak. Place your steak on the grill, wait 5 minutes and flip the steak. You are looking for the outside to become very dark in color, but not charred. Once both sides are seared, move the steak to a surface of the grill that is not as hot as the main cooking surface and continue to grill at this lower temperature for another couple of minutes. If you have a lid on your grill, you can close the lid and shorten the time per side to 4 minutes for the searing process. Do not flip more than once. Remove the steak from the grill, place a half of a tablespoon of butter on each steak and let sit for 5 minutes, or, for the adventurous cooks, Di Bruno Bros. offers a wide selection of spices and marinades from across the globe that would pair great with any steak.

The next “Steak-Out” will happen on Saturday, May 1st, so be sure to stop in and see which steak will make the cut!
