Thank you to True Aussie Beef and Lamb for the steaks that were used for this recipe


  • Australian Grass-fed New York strip steaks
  • Big Green Egg Classic Steakhouse Seasoning
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ⅛ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


Set the EGG for indirect cooking with a convEGGtor at 275°F/135°C; add the cast iron skillet to the EGG to preheat.

Season steaks generously on both sides with Big Green Egg Classic Steakhouse Seasoning and place on the EGG.

While the steaks are cooking, add 2 tbsp olive oil and minced garlic into the cast iron skillet. Cook until fragrant. Add onions, peppers, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes to the cast iron skillet. Cook until the veggies are tender. Add tomatoes and spinach, cook, stirring until sauce begins to thicken, 3-5 minutes, then stir in the grated parmesan cheese. Remove from the EGG and set aside.

Once the steak reaches 125°F/51°C, remove from the EGG. Reset the EGG for direct cooking without a convEGGtor and raise the temperature to 550°F/288°C.

Sear each side of the steak for 1 minute. Remove the steak from the EGG when the internal temperature reaches 135°F/57°F. Let rest for 10 minutes. Serve steaks smothered in pizzaiola sauce

  1. Where are you supposed to cook the ingredients that go in the skillet? A second Green Egg or your kitchen stove? The steaks, I assume are cooking on the Egg. There couldn’t be room for the cast iron skillet, unless it was very tiny. Could it be that the steaks are being cooked in the skillet? A confusing recipe, for sure. Steak pizzaiola.

    1. If there isn’t enough room on the EGG for both the steaks and the cast iron skillet then we suggest cooking the ingredients in the cast iron first and then placing the steaks on the EGG. The cast iron skillet will keep the ingredients warm until the steak is finished.

    1. This can be done by using heat resistant gloves. We offer Big Green Egg EGGmitt BBQ Gloves that will tackle this seamlessly.
