Rib Eye Rub

Things are still pretty hectic around our house after returning from vacation, digging our way out from under a mountain of laundry, and now preparing to head out of town for a wedding! So I was thrilled to find this simple looking recipe for a rib eye steak I had waiting in the freezer.

It literally took seconds to mix this rub together. And I'm lucky it did, because the Sears window replacement estimator arrived early. It even worked out that the steak had to sit for an hour after applying the rub because, let me tell you, the windows guy gave a presentation for 1.5 hours. There were props, a slideshow (complete with sound effects) and basically everything short of a song and dance!

So by the time we pulled the steak out to throw it on the grill our eyes had completely glazed over in boredom and we were completely ravenous! Which explains why there is no picture...just couldn't wait! :)

I do have a picture of Deacon, however, after about 5 mins of the window presentation...

Try this rub out the next time rib eye steaks are on sale! I didn't even have to use A1...the steak was so flavorful on its own!
