I am not a huge red meat eater but a good grilled steak every once in a while sure does hit the spot! This recipe is from my dear friend Abby. I love it because you rub it on and grill, no marinating, just great flavor. It is still so cold here that we just have to grill to prtend that it is warmer. My poor husband about froze to death cooking our steaks but oh it was worth it!
4 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon minced garlic
6 boneless rib-eye steaks, about 12 ounces each and 1 to 1¼ inches thick, trimmed of excess fat
1. If you are using a gas grill, preheat your grill on high until it reaches 500°F.
2. In a small bowl mix the rub ingredients. Lightly coat the steaks on both sides with oil. Massage the rub into both sides of each steak. Let the steaks sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.
3. Grill the steaks over direct high heat (450°F to 550°F), with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 8 to 10 minutes for medium rare. Remove from the grill, tent loosely with foil, and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings
