Grilled Steak and Radishes with Black Pepper Butter


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil plus more for grill

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper plus more

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt plus more

  • 1 1/2 pounds hanger, flank, or skirt steak

  • 1 bunch radishes with greens, halved

  • Flaky sea salt

  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


  1. Prepare grill for medium-high heat; lightly oil grill grate. Mix butter, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt in a small bowl; set aside.

  2. Season steak with kosher salt and pepper. Grill, turning occasionally, 7–10 minutes for medium-rare. Let rest 5 minutes, then top with pepper butter.

  3. Meanwhile, combine radishes and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl; season with kosher salt and pepper and toss to coat. Grill radishes until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes per side.

  4. Season steak with sea salt, slice, and serve with radishes and lemon wedges.

  5. Serve with a sprinkling of fresh thyme (Or chives work well too!)
