Rib eyes are my favorite steak. This one has a nice rub and a slightly spicy salsa. Remember that if you use bamboo skewers to soak them in water for about 1 hour prior to griling to avoid them burning.

- Cut the rib-eye steaks into 1-inch chunks, removing and discarding any large pieces of fat.

Delish! My dh loved these, especially with the sauce. I made some changes in the salsa verde however by skipping the anchovies, using cilantro (instead of parsley), only using one jalapeno and using canola oil (instead of olive oil - out of). I also left the rub on longer than indicated (about 1 1/2 hours) - delicious! Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having again soon!
