Grilled Chipotle-Rubbed Steaks with Lime Butter March 30, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I love a good steak. Especially a ribeye. Bone in ribeyes are hands down my favorite. I am not certain about putting butter on steak but I thought that the citrus butter in this recipe would pair nicely with the spice on the steak. I was right.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced (about 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated zest from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon fresh juice from 1 lime
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • Four thick, boneless steaks, such as ribeye or hanger, 10- to 12-ounces each
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill

Directions:

Combine the butter, garlic, lime zest, lime juice, and a salt to taste. Set aside. Combine the paprika, cumin, and chipotle powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle the steaks with plenty of kosher salt, then evenly sprinkle the spice mixture over them and rub into the meat.

Oil the grates of the grill (or grill pan) and preheat over high heat until smoking. Reduce heat to medium high and add steaks. Cook without moving until well-charred, about 4 minutes. Flip steaks and continue to cook until center of steaks register 125°F on an instant-read thermometer for medium-rare, 135°F for medium, or 145°F for well done. Transfer to a platter and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes, adding the lime butter after a few minutes to melt from the residual heat.
