Grilled Entrecôte of Beef

“Cooking steaks on the EGG is so simple – a bit of seasoning rub on the steak, whack up the heat to 750°F/400°C and cook to taste. It comes out seared and crisp on the outside and red and juicy inside – just how a great steak should be!” -Bertus Basson

Set EGG for direct cooking (no convEGGtor) at 750°F/400°C. Place the steaks on the grill and cook to the desired temperature. While the meat is resting before carving, lower the temperature to 400°F/204°C and place the tortillas on the grill, allowing the cheese to melt and the tortillas to get a crust. Cut the tortillas into quarters and serve with the guacamole.
