It was my husband’s birthday yesterday, and I made him a rib-eye steak. The butcher at Kroger suggested I marinate the meat simply with salt, pepper, and garlic. So that’s what I did, and it came out great, bringing out the true flavor of the steak.
1 piece of bone-in rib eye steak (mine weighed 1.86 pounds and was 1.5 inches thick!)
Season the steak on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic. Grill on high heat (lid down) for 7 minutes each side (for medium rare).
Serve with homemade mashed potatoes.
For the mashed potatoes:
Wash, peel and slice three Russet potatoes into 1/2-inch thick rounds. Add them to a pot of boiling salted water and boil for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Transfer potatoes to a bowl. Add about 1/2 cup of milk (more if you like your potatoes mushier) and 1 tbsp. butter. Add salt if you want.
