Best. Steak. Ever.

During the summer, we use our grill a lot. By a lot I mean, probably close to 6 days a week. It's miserably hot out, so the thought of heating up the house with the oven makes me want to melt. I thought that since I spend a lot of my time prepping dinners for the grill, I'd share a few of my favorites in my next few blog posts. First up, is the Best. Steak. Ever. Yes, the periods after every word is a must, I promise. I don't ask Noah (my two-year-old) what he wants for dinner unless I know I'm making steak, because it's what he always requests. You'll understand after tasting it.

These directions are for one steak, and only include the prepping part of it. Obviously it's easy to alter if you're doing more than one.

1 ribeye steak, close to 1lb
1 1/2 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
4 tbls extra virgin olive oil (2 tbls for each side of the steak)

At least an hour before grilling....
-Pierce steak several times with fork or knife.
-Coat steak with 2 tbls olive oil.
-In a small bowl stir together seasoning salt, ground pepper, and cayenne.
-Coat steak with half of the seasoning mixture.
-Let sit at least 15 min
-Turn steak over and repeat all steps.
-If putting into fridge to marinate, remove from fridge an hour before grilling to bring steak temperature down to room temperature.

Happy grilling!


  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe looks delicious! I can't wait to try it!

  2. This sound so yummy!! Those are actually spices I've never used on steak, so I'm anxious to try this! We grill a ton in the summer too- I always miss it in the winter! This is my first visit to your blog and I'm so impressed! I hope to stay in touch with you now :) Have a great rest of the week!
