    Ribeyes with mustard butter and french fries

    This is a French take on a ribeye. This recipe comes from a cookbook that I own that's up for a James Beard award this year. It's the most delicious ribeye I've ever eaten, and I thought I'd share it with you folks. This recipes serves two.

    2 (8-ounce) ribeye steaks
    1/2 teaspoon hickory smoked salt
    1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
    1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
    Vegetable oil (to rub in your cast iron pan if not cooking on the grill)
    Freshly ground black pepper

    Mustard Butter
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    2 teaspoons dry mustard
    1 generous teaspoon Dijon mustard

    1. Pat the steaks dry and rub them with the salt, chipotle powder, and cilantro. Refrigerate the steaks, uncovered, for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.
    2. To make the mustard butter, in a small bowl, mash together the butter with the dry mustard and the Dijon. Form it into two mounds and chill it on a plastic-wrap lined plate.
    3. Grill the steaks to your desired doneness. (I've even cooked them on my Lodge cast iron grill pan.....amazing)
    4. Remove the steaks from the grill. Top each steak with a knob of the mustard butter and some pepper and serve with a big pile of fries.

    Fry recipe next.

    That does sound good. I like different flavor profiles from time to time. Salt and Pepper definitely does it for me for a ribeye. But in college, we got leftover Prime Rib and we would slather with mustard, and just broil in the oven to heat it up. We tore that stuff up. Course broke college kids will tear up anything.

      For us it was Hamburger Helper. We once filled up two buggies full, and we piled so many on the conveyor at wal-mart, it shut down. The lady had to take a side panel off and put it in grandmaw to get it moving again. She asked we not do THAT again.

    The first non-AR steak recipe I've seen in a while that doesn't call for letting the steaks come to room temp first. It does sound good. Mustard and beef are good buddies, but I must say I've never had it on a steak before that I can recall.


      Here's the fry (frites) recipe that goes with the steak. When made together, you will not soon forget this meal. I never thought I could make french fries in the oven that were the best french fries I've ever had. These are them. Serves 4-6 so toss the leftovers with your eggs the next morning.

      3 pounds russet potatoes
      4 tablespoons olive oil
      2 teaspoons sea salt
      Fresh herbs such as a big handful of sage leaves, a few sprigs of Rosemary or thyme, or a mixture of them

      1. Peel the potatoes, leaving on a few strips of skin as you go. Cut the potatoes into 1/3 inch thick slices. Lay the slices onto a cutting board and slice them into 1/3 inch sticks. Put them in a very large bowl with very cold, lightly salted water, and let them soak for one hour.
      2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees f.
      3. Drain the potatoes and lay them on a kitchen towel. Rub them with the towel to dry them very well. Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray. Place the potatoes on the baking sheets. Dribble the olive oil all over the potatoes and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the salt. Add the fresh herbs and mix everything together with your hands. Spread the potato sticks out in a single layer on each baking sheet.
      4. Bake for45-50 minutes, rotating pans from front to back and top to bottom midway during baking. As they bake, stir the fries several times so they cook evenly. Once the fries are golden brown and crispy, remove the pans from the oven and serve.

      Garlic aioli for dipping
      1/2 cup mayonnaise
      2 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed through s garlic press
      1 teaspoon lemon juice
      1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

      Make these with that steak above and you will be talking about dinner for days to come.

        Thanks Don, now I am hungry for steak again, after stuffing myself with a fat ribeye less than 3 hours ago.


          The rub doesn't seem like a lot but don't be tempted to use more until you try it once. It's very flavorful. The ribeyes I use for this are only about half and inch thick so it's a quick cook. I hope you give it a try and let me know how you like it.


          I'm so going to give this recipe combo a try when we get back from vacay. It sounds amazing!

          I hope I remember where to find it after two weeks of libations and sightseeing.



            Bout to roll with this. Had already dry brined, so I did 1:1 chipotle and black pepper, and got a nice covering of freshly chopped cilantro. Put a little oil down to extract any fat soluble flavors.

            Can't wait for that mustard butter topping.....

              This sounds like a good idea for a Valentine's Day dinner for two. If we're snowed in, I may give it a try!



                Sounds great, thanks for sharing. I've made several different types of compound butter (smoke some garlic next time you grill, soo good) but hadn't thought of mustard.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
