Perfect Peppered Ribeye Steaks
From the Taste of Home “Grill It” Magazine 2012, Cover Picture
Sharon Bickett - Chester, South Carolina
4 beef ribeye steaks (1-1/2 inches thick)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons dried ground thyme
2 teaspoons dried ground oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Orange slices, optional
Parsley sprigs, optional
Brush steaks lightly with oil. In a small bowl, combine all seasonings.
Sprinkle seasonings over steaks and press into both sides. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°;well-done, 170°).
Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Place on a warm serving platter, cut across the grain into thick slices. Garnish with orange slices.
Fine Cooking’s Balsamic Onion & Tomato Salsa
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, cut into medium dice (to yield about 1-1/2 cups)
2 tsp. granulated sugar
1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot; add the onion and sugar. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften but not brown, 4 to 5 min. Add the vinegar and cook until the onions are soft, 2 to 3 min. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, until they just begin to soften, 1 to 2 min. Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in the basil, and season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and keep warm. Serve on top of cooked rib eye steaks.
This calls for grilling.
