Grill, covered, 20 to 23 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium rare (145F) doneness, turning occasionally. Do not overcook. Remove; let stand 10 minutes. Carve into thin slices.
Cook's Tip: To broil, place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 27 to 29 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once.
