Today, April 10, celebrates the writing of Chapter III of The Book of the Law. This chapter is written in the voice of Horus,* who tells us, “I am the Hawk-Headed Lord of Silence & of Strength; my nemyss shrouds the night-blue sky.” He also says, “There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.”
Horus commands, “Worship me with fire & blood,” so we suggest this recipe as part of today’s feast menu. If you don’t eat meat, never fear — alternative recipes are below.
Perfectly Grilled Steak
- 4 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch-thick boneless rib-eye or New York strip steaks (about 12 ounces each) or filets mignons (8 to 10 ounces each), trimmed
- 2 tbs canola or extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- About 20 minutes before grilling, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let sit, covered, at room temperature.
- Heat your grill to high. Brush the steaks on both sides with oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).
- Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

* “This ‘God,’ Horus, has a technical title: Heru-Ra-Ha, a combination of twin gods, Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Hoor-Paar-Kraat. The meaning of this doctrine must be studied in Magick. (He is symbolized as a Hawk-Headed God enthroned.)” —Liber AL vel Legis sub figurâ CCXX, Introduction, IV: The New Aeon
