Matt Iseman’s Spice Rubbed Grilled Rib-Eye Steak– Home & Family

BBQ Ribeye Steaks

Matt Iseman is on the show to demonstrate his barbecue skills by preparing Spice Rubbed Grilled Rib-Eye Steak. Matt confides this is his favorite cut of meat because it has the most fat, and thus the most flavor. To prep, first let the meat come to room temperature for at least thirty minutes. Next, coat the meat lightly with olive oil and rub in the spice mixture which includes a surprising ingredient - espresso. Cook the steak for about a total of eight minutes for medium rare- the key is to rotate it on the grill every couple of minutes for varying grill marks.
