Did you know it takes 11 pounds of fresh peppers to produce less than 2 pounds of paprika? A signature component of Hungarian and Spanish cooking (where it’s known as pimentón), the spice is the dried and ground fruit of various members of the Capsicum annuum species. Its distinctive red color comes from pigments concentrated in the pepper’s flesh. Capsaicin, found in the pith, produces the mild heat. There are many types of paprika; the best known are smoked, hot, and sweet.
Prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the steak on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, close the grill, and cook without turning until lightly charred and cooked to the desired doneness, 5 to 10 minutes longer for top sirloins and 5 to 15 minutes longer for rib-eye and filet mignons.
