Author Notes: I was so excited to see your best broiled steak recipe contest. Steak is one of my favorite foods and while barbecuing outside is ideal for some, it is one of the few barbecued meats that actually benefits from the broiler. Why? Because you can control the heat and it won't burst into flames when you put the lid down, run inside and came back out to find fat has dripped down into the flames and set your beautiful piece of meat aflame.This is a recipe my dad used to make when I was a kid. He is recently deceased (cancer) but his spirit lives on each time I eat this and think of him. He used to rub the entire steak in a liberal dosing of pure yellow mustard, then add salt and pepper. I have updated it a bit, by substituting dry mustard and changing the spicing a bit. But its still every inch his recipe. The key is to buy a New York roast and cut it yourself into nice 2 1/2 inch slabs (or have your butcher do it.) —coffeefoodwritergirl
