Thick cut ribeye steak with rosemary dry rub.
This dry rub is a perfect inexpensive gift you can make for your steak-loving dad. It's easy to make and stores well in an airtight container.
It was inspired by the desire to take the grilled steak flavor to a slightly higher level. The sugar in the recipe adds the slightest sweetness to the grilled meat which enhances the meats natural flavor profile.
So basic, yet so gratifying, share this one with dad on Father's Day. Perfect with a thick cut ribeye!
