If you are a carnivore like me, grilled rib-eye steaks are at the very pinnacle of our bovine desires. Brimming with "oh-so-delicious" fat and huge beef flavor, no other cut of meat comes close. Couple that with an incredible compound butter....life just doesn't get any better. Just one caveat when making the butter...do not use sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil...if you do the butter will not hold together.
2, 1-pound rib-eye steaks, 1-inch thick
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
4 ounces unsalted butter (1 stick)
3 tablespoons finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeño
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
1 tablespoon freshly chopped fresh leaf parsley
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon smoked salt
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
- Put the steaks on a rack over a large rimmed baking sheet. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels, and then generously season both sides with kosher salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
Wine pairing: Malbec
