Reviews for Peppered Ribeye Steaks
"I left out the thyme in this recipe but without it this recipe still had lots of flavor!! I will be using this again for my steak recipes. I also broiled the steaks instead of grilling them."
"I made the rub as specified but used it on 3 rib-eyes instead of 4, so I used too much rub. They were delicious nonetheless, just a tad bit *too* seasoned. Next time, I will read the directions better. Will definitely make again. Even though hubby and I kept stating "there's too much rub on these steaks", we continued to eat all three, so tasty it was."
"I used these seasonings on some New York Strip steaks and they were delicious! Every time I've made steaks before, I always thought they seemed bland. But you could definitely taste the seasonings on these. My husband said they were better than any steak he'd had even at restaurants."
