Ribeye has always been my favorite steak cut. I like to dress it with blue cheese and steak sauce. This is my first time using the Stubb’s Ancho Chili & Garlic Texas Steakhouse Marinade Mix. But I love all of the Stubb’s BBQ products, so I think it will make a great dry rub.
I mixed the packet with olive oil, a touch of liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and a dash of Montreal Steak Seasoning in a zipper bag for 3 days.
I can use two of my favorite skillets to cook it. My grill skillet and cast iron skillet. The Cast Iron skillet can stand the heat of a hot oven. However, the grill skillet has plastic on the handle, so I use it only on the stovetop.
- Ribeye Steaks, 2 (I take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking to make it room temperature)

- Worcestershire Sauce, 1 teaspoon
- Soy Sauce, 1/2 teaspoon
- Liquid Smoke, 1/8 teaspoon

- Blue Cheese Crumbles, 2 teaspoons, to your taste
- Steak Sauce
- Vinegar (Water, Beef Broth, Beer, etc. to deglaze)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Preheat Grill skillet and Cast Iron skillet for a few minutes
- Add a “Garlic Hole” by cutting into the steak for the butter and garlic
- Add Olive Oil, the Steak(s) and grill for 2 minutes per side, to get some fancy grill marks
- Deglaze pan (save pan drippings to pour over rested steak with Blue Cheese)
- Add Butter and Garlic to Cast Iron skillet, with steak on top
- Bake for 7 minutes
- Remove from oven
- Top with Blue Cheese and rest for 5 minutes
- Slap on your favorite Steak Sauce with Horseradish, and chow down!
A great steak is like a great movie. It has a fantastic lead player, co-star and supporting cast.
I hardly ever watch movies. I get sleepy close to the 2 hour mark. Although I prefer to watch shorter 30 or 60 minute TV shows, I did take the time to watch some great movies lately, like:
I love all movies starring Julie Andrews, such as Mary Poppins, The Princess Diaries and The Tooth Fairy. She has tons of other great movies, but those are my top three favorites. I love, love, love the original Mary Poppins movie. I predicted disaster for Mary Poppins Returns. But in the end, I loved it, almost as most as the original. One of my favorite parts was the Dick Van Dyke dance scene. He still has it!
I love scary movies. My brother just rented Us, so I told him no spoilers. That was one of the best scary movies I have ever seen. I was hollering at the screen, like don’t go there! I am a huge fan of Lupita Nyong’o! She puts the “A” in Acting! She was terrific in The Black Panther! I loved her use of dance and voice in the movie Us.
Fresh off the Boat is one of my favorite TV shows. Mainly because race does not matter. It does not matter if the family happens to be Hispanic, Black, Asian or White. Funny is funny, regardless. The Grandma is my favorite character on the show. Constance Wu and Michelle Yeoh inspired me to watch this movie. It was so entertaining and funny!
I have my lead star ready – the Steak.
I have my co-star ready – the Salad
I have my supporting cast ready – the Horseradish, Blue Cheese and Steak Sauce
- Guy’s Grocery Games
- Property Brothers: Forever Home
- House Hunters
Steak, that’s for dinner! I was so tempted to “lick the plate” clean, but resisted. It was so good!
Have a safe and happy July 4th!
