  2. In a small bowl combine next four ingredients (through black pepper). Brush both sides of steaks with oil. Sprinkle with pepper mixture; rub in with your fingers.

  3. Prepare grill for indirect heat using a drip pan. Place steaks over drip pan. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 25 to 30 minutes for medium rare (145°F) or 30 to 35 minutes for medium (160°F), turning once.

Grilled Mango Butter

  1. Peel and seed mango; cut into 1/2-inch slices. Lightly brush slices with olive oil. For a charcoal grill, grill mango on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 4 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place mango on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) In a food processor combine grilled mango and butter. Cover and process with several on-off pulses until mango is almost smooth. Spoon mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Shape into an 8-inch roll. Wrap and chill about 2 hours or until firm.
