Don't overthink steak. With a good steak, simple is better, and those look like good steaks. A 1" steak should turn out perfect with a direct sear for about 2 1/2-5 minutes per side depending on temp. I've tried all kinds of stuff, but that's the only way I cook steak now-get the grill hot hot hot, sear one side, flip it, put it on a plate and rest for five minutes. Just doesn't get much better than that. If you try braising it, it'll likely be overdone and not nearly as good as if you just grilled it.
...Half a yard full of crap to cook on like everybody else...
