Peppered Ribeye Steaks
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling Grill: 25 min.
One of the best steak rub recipes that I've ever used. I've used this recipe for many years. I don't use pepper flakes though. It is best on ribeyes because of the higher fat content but can be used on other cuts as well. Use a little olive oil on the steak before coating with the seasoning, this helps it stick. You can use quite a bit or just a little seasoning. A good coating seems to crust up nicely with the olive oil. Be sure you watch for flareups on your grill. The olive oil and the fat from the ribeye make for a good fire if you don't keep an eye on it. I never walk away from the grill when I make these because of this.
This is a five-star recipe. I made the rub as directed. I only used half the rub on the steaks because I thought that was enough for our taste & I saved the rest for another time. But the seasoning mix is so good. I will never use another pre- packaged rub mix again.
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.
