When preparing steaks for the grill, Steven Raichlen typically applies rubs and seasonings first, then drizzles the meat with oil. But here he applies an oil-based paste before sprinkling on a pungent blend of peppercorns, which helps the Asian-flavored crust cling to the steak as it cooks. Plus: More Grilling Recipes and Tips

How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a charcoal grill. In a mortar or spice grinder, coarsely grind the peppercorns; transfer to a bowl and stir in the salt. In another bowl, whisk the soy sauce with the wasabi and sesame oil to make a paste. Spread the wasabi paste over the steak and sprinkle with the pepper, gently pressing it into the meat.

Step 2    

Grill the steak over moderately high heat, turning once, 10 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and serve.
