Step 3: Prepare the grill
Thirty minutes prior to cooking, remove the steak from the fridge to bring the steak to room temperature. Then, heat the grill to high heat. Prior to grilling, allow the crushed garlic cloves and excess marinade to drip off the steak prior to grilling to avoid flames in the grill.
