This week we’re bringing you a killer week night dinner option. This Grilled Ribeye with Pickled Pepper Purée is HUGE on flavor, but super easy to prepare. For the best flavor and texture, you’ll want to grab a couple of monster, thick cut ribeye steaks and divvy them up to serve. The fattiness of the Grilled Ribeye steaks is perfectly complimented by the Italian influenced flavor profile of the Pickled Pepper Purée.
Heat the olive oil and garlic in a Lodge 8” Cast Iron Skillet over medium-low heat, and simmer until the garlic is tender. Lower the heat if the cloves begin to brown. Remove the garlic from the oil, place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients, plus 2 tbsp of oil from the skillet. Pulse until desired consistency is reached.
Set a cast iron charcoal tray in place in your Napoleon P500RSIB. Fill with lump charcoal and light using the two burners underneath the charcoal. When the charcoal is lit turn the burners off. Bring the heat up to about 500ºF.
Just before placing the steaks over the charcoal, place a handful of Cattleman’s Grill Hickory Smoking Wood Chips in the corner compartment of the cast iron charcoal tray. Grill the steaks with the lid closed until nice grill marks and char are established. Flip and repeat. Move to the opposite side of the grill, not over the charcoal. Close the lid and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 130ºF. Remove from the grill and rest 5 minutes.
Serve the steaks topped with the pickled pepper puree.
