With that said, We decided to share a recipe with you tonight......
Something a little NON-TRADITIONAL---since most of us will be getting our fill of Christmas Turkey and Ham---we have decided to cook up some Rib Eye steaks---on the grill.
That's the beauty of Florida...It's still in the 80's temperature wise here...so we decided to go to the pool and sunbathe, then Cook up some good old fashioned Rib eye's on the grill....on Christmas Eve... which we wanted to share with you!
Rib Eye Dry Rub
Salt and Pepper
- Rub steaks with a dash of each of the ingredients listed above.
- Place steaks on grill and lightly char the entire steak on both sides on the hot grill. Cook for 3 minutes then turn the steak over and repeat on the other side. At that point remove the steak and finish in the oven.
-If you are able to finish the steak in an oven, do so, otherwise finish on the grill to the desired doneness. Rare to medium rare will just be a few minutes longer on the grill, where as medium and medium well will see a small pool of juice come up out the top of the steak after a few minutes. To finish steak in oven, heat oven to 350 degrees place in oven until desired doneness---(Medium well should be about 8-10 minutes)
- The key to the perfect steak, is allow the steak to rest after cooking. Simply remove the steak from the grill or oven, place on a plate in a warm place for a ¼ of the cooking time. The reason you need to rest the steak is because the meat is all tensed up from the heat of the cooking and you need to allow the meat to relax.

Baby Bella Mushrooms
- Wash mushrooms and slice to about 1/4" thick pieces
- Heat skillet to medium low and melt 1/4 stick of unsalted butter. Once Butter is melted add 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil.
- Add a dash of salt and garlic
- Add mushrooms and saute over low heat for about 30 minutes or until mushrooms reach desired tenderness.
Plate, serve, and enjoy!!
