The hanger steak, also known as the butcher's cut, is one of my favorites. This week on the Summer Grill Series I throw a hanger steak on the charcoal grill with some asparagus, served with some homemade jalapeño hallandaise.


  • Hanger steak
  • Kosher salt
  • 16 mesh black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Asparagus
  • Extra-virgin olive oil (EVO)
  • Salt and pepper
Jalapeno Hollandaise Sauce:
  • 1/2 pound of butter
  • Egg yolks
  • Garlic cloves
  • Lemon juice
  • Black pepper
  • Torch-blasted jalapeno


Preparing the Hanger Steak:
  • Trim the hanger steak if necessary and cut it into manageable-sized pieces.
  • Season the steaks with kosher salt, 16 mesh black pepper, and garlic powder on all sides.
  • Fire up the grill and preheat it to the desired temperature.
  • Once the grill reaches the desired temperature, place the seasoned hanger steak on the grill.
  • Cook the steaks hot and fast for a couple of minutes on each side. Adjust the cooking time based on the size of the steaks and desired doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 130°F (54°C).
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
  • While the steaks are resting, place the chopped asparagus on a perforated grill pan.
  • Drizzle the asparagus with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the grill pan with the asparagus over the flames and let them cook for a few minutes until they are tender and slightly charred, flipping them occasionally.
Jalapeno Hollandaise Sauce:
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
  • In a blender, add egg yolks, garlic cloves, lemon juice, black pepper, and torch-blasted jalapeno. Blend until combined.
  • Slowly pour the hot melted butter into the blender while running it on low speed to create a hollandaise sauce. The hot butter will cook the egg yolks and create a smooth sauce. Adjust the seasonings to taste.
Plate up! 
  • Slice the rested hanger steak
  • Smother the grilled asparagus with the jalapeño hollandaise sauce.
  • Dive in!
