Dry Rub Ribeye
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
-2 bone-in ribeye steaks, about 2-inches thick
-3 tbsp kosher salt (to taste)
-2 tbsp brown sugar
-1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, pulverized
-2 tsp spanish smoked paprika
-1 tsp garlic powder
-Extra virgin olive oil
Combine all the spices in a bowl. Stir to evenly distribute. Add 1 tbsp kosher salt and stir. Taste the rub then gradually add more salt to your liking.
Rub each steak on all sides generously with the rub. Wrap each steak in plastic wrap or place in an air tight container. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours or best overnight.
In a heavy bottomed cast iron skillet, heat oil in high heat then once it is slightly smoking, add the steak and cook (in batches if you have a small skillet) for 2 minutes on each side or until you have a nice crust.
Lower heat to medium and then continue cooking for 6-7 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from skillet then let it rest for 5 minutes. Garnish with some parsley on the side and serve. Enjoy!
