Perfect Beef Steak

READY IN: 20mins


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


  • Preheat the grill to high, giving it 15 minutes to build heat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
