Smoked spiced grilled ribeye is a delicious dish that combines the rich flavor of ribeye steak with smoky and aromatic spices. Here’s a simple recipe to help you prepare this mouthwatering dish:
-1 ribeye steak (about 1 to 1.5 inches thick)
-2 tablespoons smoked paprika
-1 tablespoon garlic powder
-1 tablespoon onion powder
-1 tablespoon brown sugar
-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust according to your spice preference)
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon black pepper
-Olive oil (for brushing)
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and set it up for indirect grilling. If you’re using a charcoal grill, arrange the coals on one side of the grill to create a hot zone and a cooler zone. If you’re using a gas grill, preheat one side of the grill on high heat and leave the other side off.
In a small bowl, combine the smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the spice rub.
Pat the ribeye steak dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of the steak with olive oil to help the spice rub adhere to the meat.
Generously season both sides of the steak with the spice rub, pressing it into the meat to ensure good coverage. Let the steak sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate.
Place the seasoned ribeye steak directly over the hot zone of the grill. Sear it for about 3-4 minutes on each side to develop a nice crust.
Once the steak is seared, move it to the cooler zone of the grill (or turn off the burner on the gas grill’s cooler side). Close the lid of the grill and let the steak cook indirectly. The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the steak and your desired level of doneness. For a medium-rare steak, it usually takes about 8-10 minutes.
Use an instant-read meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak. For medium-rare, the temperature should read around 135°F (57°C). Adjust the cooking time accordingly if you prefer a different level of doneness.
Once cooked to your liking, remove the ribeye steak from the grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
After resting, slice the ribeye steak against the grain into thick slices. Serve it hot and enjoy!
This recipe will give you a flavorful and juicy smoked spiced grilled ribeye that is sure to impress your taste buds. Feel free to adjust the spices according to your personal preference and enjoy a delicious steak dinner!
