Herbed Ribeye Steaks
I've been a real carnivore lately. I don't know if it's my current workout, the heat, or whether the meat in the meat department looks especially tempting - but we've had some steaks at least once a week for the past couple of weeks.
These ribeyes were so easy and tasty, I knew I had to share them with you guys. If you have an herb garden like I do, just pluck your favorite herbs, throw in some garlic if you'd like, and you're on your way to meat heaven.
2 ribeye steaks
2 tablespoons herbs of your choice (I used rosemary, thyme, and sage), finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
In a small bowl, combine the herbs, garlic, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. The herbs should be dense like a paste so you can spread them on the ribeye.
Heat a grill or cast-iron skillet (it was way too hot outside to be grilling) to medium high heat.
Spread the herb mixture on both sides of the steaks. Cook steaks to desired doneness.
And bam, a fantastically easy steak dinner in no time! You can even deglaze the cast iron skillet (if you didn't choose to grill, of course) with some red wine and beef stock to get a fantastic sauce. Let it reduce until slightly thickened and then mount it with a pat of butter - pour the sauce on top of the steaks to take them to a whole other level!
Hope you guys are still staying cool - we're expecting temps in the high 80's this week (which is a MAJOR change from triple digits!) - so hopefully we can enjoy the outside while we can =) Have a great day guys!
