Grilled Garlic and Rosemary Ribeye Steak

Grilled Garlic and Rosemary Ribeye Steak

One of the greatest things about July 4th weekend is that ALL THE MEAT IS ON SALE!!! Beautifully marbled Angus ribeye steaks for $5.99 a pound. By the way that I cooked tonight, you would have thought we were celebrating the holiday early!

I have a dilemma. I have about 42 posts that are sitting in the “Drafts” folder. They must have hired someone over at WordPress to do nothing but wait for the moment that I log in. I get a pop-up message that nobody else that I know gets: “ALERT! Steamy Kitchen! You have 42 drafts waiting. Most of them full with incoherent thoughts and incomplete sentences. Are you planning on finishing them?”

I swear, my husband must have said something to WordPress….he’s always complaining that I’m a good starter, but a lousy finisher. Especially when it comes to painting a room. About once every 3 months, I get bored of a room’s color and shop for a new palette. I start eye-level and methodically paint a perfect 3 foot x 3 foot area on each wall. Because any higher or lower than than would require straining, reaching and grunting. And that’s just not lady-like (because….cough….telling the world about my Pocket Rocket is).

Well, good thing husband is a great finisher, and he is so patient too!

Back to the whole subject of 42 drafts….I have A LOT of recipes to share with you. All of them have gorgeous photos ready and waiting. Most of them have the recipes already written out in short-hand that only mutt wearing a pink tutu would understand. They are all realllllly goooood eating and recipes that are either family secrets taught by my Mom or ones that I have been refining over the years. But every time that I want to finish a draft….a shiny, new recipe (usually found on one of your blogs!) comes along and distracts my attention. Off to go experiment and cook something new! Dang….the life of a Flogger is really tough.

As previously mentioned in my post titled How to Top a Steak Just Like Fancy Restaurants, I am not allowed to go anywhere near the BBQ grill outside. Its just not my area of expertise and my husband is such a pro at grilling that I have given up even trying. Me messing with his grill is like husband coming into my kitchen and messing up my knife drawer. Grounds for divorce. So, in the spirit of a happy, peaceful marriage, I learned to kick-ass in marinating steaks and making steak sauces. The aroma of rosemary, garlic and steak-on-sale grilling outside just makes me giddy warm and happy inside (I’m just not a giddy kind of gal…is that ok?)

Grilled Garlic & Rosemary Ribeye Steak

Servings: Prep Time: Cook Time:
garlic-rosemary-steak

Ingredients:

Directions:

Your favorite steaks Rosemary sprigs + any other fresh herb (I used Parsley) Lemon slices Garlic cloves, chopped, smashed or use garlic press Glug of olive oil Salt & Pepper 1. Season each steak, both sides with salt and pepper. I usually use 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt per side on a large steak. I love salt. 2. In a bag, add all ingredients. Smish and smush a bit.

Get all the air out of the bag so that the herbs are hugging the steak.

Marinate. 1 hour on the countertop worked beautifully, but the longer you marinate, the more flavor you infuse.

Ideally, 4 hours (3 hrs in the refrig, 1 hr on countertop).

Make sure you bring steak to room temperature before you grill. 3. When grill is super-duper hot, Husband usually just takes the steaks out, lets the olive oil drip off and throws the steak on grill with the herbs, lemon and garlic still clinging to it.

Grill.

Serve with the herb/lemon/garlic cling-ons.

Here’s the rest of our dinner….sitting in Draft mode: two down, 40 to go

    Dear Jaden,

    “Honey Glazed Carrots with Citrus Salt”
    “Garlic Truffle Fries”

    You have named your food with beautiful names, just like the Chinese Restaurants, except I can figure out the ingredients used.

    Thanks for the tips that Ribeye Steak is on sale on July 4th weekend.

    p/s After I discovered your blog, I have kept my drafts as drafts.

  2. Suganya

    I have nothing to say abt the food, but that was a well written post. I have few recipes that I have drafted when I started my blog, but havent seen the day’s light :D How did you make Garlic truffle fries? By using truffle oil over potato fries?

  3. wokandspoon

    I do that as well – start a whole lot of things that I don’t finish. I have about 4 scarves that I started knitting but never finished!

    I’m also a bad steak griller – I tend to overcook. That steak looks just right!

  4. LunaPierCook

    Beautiful stuff, lady! :-) I’m going to have to make those fries. Let’s see … a mandolin … “Honey, it’s for the blog!

    Ok, it looks as though I get to harrass you here. You’re going to have to make that 43 drafts. Why? Because at the beginning of the recipe for “Szechuan Peppercorn Roasted Chicken”, you wrote, “The recipe below is for a convection setting on your oven. I’ll be posting recipe for standard oven tomorrow…too tired to type anymore!” I know, I know … “Hey … LPC … shaaaadupppp! :-D

  5. Stephanie

    Man that looks like a good steak… beautifully marbled! And I so know what you mean about drafts… I’ve got dozens of them in my computer too. And dozens more in my head.

  6. Lydia

    That steak looks absolutely beautiful! I’m off to the grocery and the farmers’ market this morning. If I find some ribeye, I’ve got the rosemary in my garden all ready to go. Yum.

    Speaking of wanting a bite…yummy looking meaty goodness there!!
    I did rib eyes on the grill the other day for mom…what a great piece of meat. fatty, beefy deliciousness. But $5.99 a pound?? Would you call my butcher and fill him in on the going price? for our local organic meat it’s like $12.00/#…ouch!
    And when i read about your pocket rocket maybe being mixed with your kitchen gadgets…there should be a warning label: “This is not a hand blender..And vice versa!”

  9. Melinda

    I can’t wait to see all the other stuff hidden in your draft file!
    That steak looks fab! No sales here in UK going on…guess the Brits aren’t too keen to remember Independence Day. Funny that, huh?
    The carrots cooked in orange juice/stock and dusted with your citrus salt is pure inspiration. Now why didn’t I think of that…it sounds delicious together. You are one crafty cook!

    MrsHBT- good thing I wasn’t hungry when I named my children!

    Suganya- recipe for the fries finished! see next post

    Wok & Spoon- I have at least 10 knitting projects to finish too… I haven’t even touched my knitting needles in the past 6 months.

    LPC- crap!!!! see – I totally forgot about that one already

    Stephanie- fortunately I have none in my head – like the memory card in my digital camera, its full already.

    Lydia- can’t wait to see what you get at the farmers market

    Bruce- I dont’ know where you live, but if you have a Sweetbay Supermarket near you, thats where I found them on sale. I had to warn my kids that Pocket-Rocket in Mommy’s drawer is not a space ship toy.

    Steeped – thats why you have FFB (friends with food benefits – like chefs, people with nice kitchens, and people with GRILLS!)

    MW- tell husband to get grilling!

    Amy- I think ribeye is the best cut – nice and fatty

    Melinda- I have a great recipe for Asian burgers just dying to be published…just need to test it one more time…

  11. Stefanie

    I am in the process of trying this right now, my mouth has been getting ready for this all day!

  12. mrshbt

    You said, “good thing I wasn’t hungry when I named my children”.

    Jaden, you have countless talents, I have discovered that you have a good sense of humor.

    I named my baby Little Chicken because she was born in the year of Chicken, not because I was hungry. :)

  13. Mae

    Jaden, it must be a man thing. Here at ours, it’s the same scenario. I marinate and direct, but not allowed to go near the bbq grill! As soon as i hand him the plate of meat, he would ask me ‘how long?’ and that’s it.

    That photo looks stunning. I bet it tasted so delicious too! :)

    so funny!

    I try to get my kids to cook and I am mildly succesful. I have one daughter who looks at recipes now and says “HHHMM, interesting but what if we did this?”.

    Thanks for the inspiration and I hope you continue to enjoy your pocket rocket. Your husband seems lucky to have such a passionate wife. She loves cooking and… that too.
