      We loved the steaks. I made them according to instructions, and cooked them directly on the grill (our gas stove/oven is being repaired). I used the Grill Mates and other seasonings, but only added a pinch of ground thyme (I did not have the leaves). While hubby was grilling (about 2 minutes per side), I was using my electric griddle to grill some sliced onions with EVOO and toasted up some split french rolls. Our steaks were quite thin, so I put two on each roll. We made rib-eye sandwiches out of the steaks, and they were fantastic!. I also made some homemade chips to go with them. Thank you for an excellent dinner tonight. (Made for "Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup" tag).
