Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces rib eye steaks
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon homemade dry rub seasonings


  1. Preheat the grill to high, giving it 15 minutes to build heat.
  2. Coat the steak with olive oil, then cover one side with the spice rub. When the grill is hot, lay the steak on it, rub side down.
  3. Cook, undisturbed, for 4 minutes. Flip the steak with tongs, not a fork (the juices will escape), and move to a cooler part of the grill to finish cooking it through, another 4 to 5 minutes. The steak is medium rare when its internal temp reaches 145°F or it feels like a Nerf football to the touch.
  4. Serve with a side of grilled vegetables dusted with smoked paprika, and a scoop of homemade salsa. If you've used pork or chicken, serve with mango or pineapple salsa.
