Caveman cooking. Simple idea. Get your coals hot and then just chuck your food right into the fire. Kinda sounds ridiculous, but I don’t know if I will ever cook a steak a different way. This might of been the best steak I have ever grilled.
Here is what you will need.
– Ribeye Steak – 14 ounces at least or 2″ thick.
– Seasoning of choice – I used some Traeger beef rub
– Minced Garlic
– White Wine
– I also did a Red Bell Pepper and corn on the cob.
Start by getting your coals cooking. I just did this in my Weber so I lined the bottom of the grill with about 8 fire starter cubes, lit them all and then dumped my Lump Charcoal on top. While that was getting going, I took my steaks out and seasoned them and got my corn soaking. You should soak it for about 30 minutes.
After about 20 minutes or so, your coals should be getting a nice whiteish glowing red to them. Once your coals are hot, go ahead and lay your corn and bell pepper into the coals. Your going to turn them every couple minutes. With the corn, your just waiting for the kernells to get soft. You can pull back some of the husk and press some kernells With your finger to check. With the pepper, you want a nice char to the outside. That will peel off later. Both take about 10 minutes .
When your about 5 minutes into cooking the vegatables, fan the coals lightly to blow off any ash and set tge steaks right in the coals. Don’t worry, the steaks won’t collect any of the ash! Let them sit for about 3 minutes and flip them. Let them sit for another 3 minutes and pull them off the grill.
While they are sitting. Take a pan and add about 6 Tablespoons of Butter, 2 cloves of minced garlic and about a 1/4 cup of white wine. How much of each really depends on your personal tastes and how many steaks you make.
Once the pan is hot and the mixture is boiling, go ahead and throw the steaks in. 2 minutes then flip and cook for 2 more minutes.
Pull them out and let them rest for a few minutes. When you slice them, they should be a nice medium rare/ medium. Such a good steak and such a neat way to cook them!
