Prep : 15 minutes Cook : 20 minutes Chill :1 hour Makes 6 servings
2-1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
4-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-1/2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons ground red pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
6 (1 1/2-inch-thick) rib-eye steaks $
3 tablespoons olive oil
**Garnish: fresh thyme sprigs**
1 . Combine first 7 ingredients. Brush steaks with oil; rub with pepper mixture. Cover and chill 1 hour.
2 . Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 8 to 10 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Garnish, if desired.
A simple rub of black and red ground peppers, lemon pepper, garlic powder and parsley flakes takes rib-eyes from good to extraordinary. One hour of stand time is all it takes to create this great flavor in the steaks.
