Grilled Rosemary & Honey Frenched Ribeye Steaks
– 2 Omaha Steaks Private Reserve Bone-in Frenched Ribeye Steaks
– ½ cup 2:1 mixture of kosher salt & corn starch
– Olive oil
– 2-3 rosemary sprigs, leaves minced, stems discarded
– 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
– 2 teaspoons honey
– ½ teaspoon cayenne powder
– Kosher salt and fresh ground peppercorn, to taste
– Unsalted butter, room temperature
1. Pat steaks entirely dry with paper towel, removing any surface moisture. Using a mixture of 2:1 Salt:Corn Starch, coat the entire steak. Lay meat over a wire rack, then place uncovered in the freezer for 35 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, preheat grill to hot using 2-zone method (see notes section below).
3. Prepare marinade of oil, rosemary, garlic, honey, cayenne & peppercorn.
4. Remove steak from freezer, massage meat with liberal degree of marinade & place immediately upon the hottest grates of direct heat zone. Yes – your steak is still “par frozen.” Sear exterior of the steak 4-6 minutes per side & 1-2 minutes on the ends, with the grill lid open.
5. Move steaks over to the cooler, indirect heat zone. Basting with butter & turning intermittently, roast the steaks, with grill lid closed, until they are within 5 degrees of desired internal temperature (see temperature guide in notes section below).
6. Remove the steaks from the grill, season additionally to taste, tent with foil, & rest 5-10 minutes allowing the juices to redistribute within the steak. Serve. Devour. Enjoy. Cheers!
