Salt-and-Pepper Rib Eye

Salt-and-Pepper Rib Eye

A bone-in rib eye requires nothing more than salt, pepper, and a hot grill. Though to make it even more sublime, serve with scallions that have been tossed in olive oil and salt and given a quick char.

A bone-in rib eye requires nothing more than salt, pepper, and a hot grill. Though to make it even more sublime, serve with scallions that have been tossed in olive oil and salt and given a quick char. This is part of BA’s Best, a collection of our essential recipes.

If you’re going to pay top dollar for your steak, you’re going to want to be extra sure to treat it right. With a prime cut like a dry-aged, bone-in rib eye, we’re talking super simple. This cut has plenty of great flavor, thanks to some beautiful marbling, so you can forget about crazy marinades and rubs: All you need is salt, pepper, and a really hot grill.

 

Ingredients

SERVINGS

1 1½–2-inch bone-in rib eye (about 2 pounds)
2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Coarse sea salt

 

Preparation

Step 1

Put steak on a wire rack set on a rimmed baking sheet. Pat dry with paper towels. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt pers side. Chill uncovered for up to 3 hours. Remove steak from refrigerator 1 hour before grilling and let come to room temperature. Pat dry with paper towels. Season again with 1/2 tsp. salt; press in 1/2 tsp. pepper per side so pieces adhere.

Step 2

Build a two-zone fire in a charcoal grill for direct (medium-high coals) and indirect (medium-low coals) heat. Alternatively, heat a gas grill to high just before cooking, leaving one burner on low. Sear steak over direct heat, flipping once, until nicely charred, 3-4 minutes per side. (If a flare-up occurs, use tongs to gently slide the steak to a cooler part of the grill.) Move steak to indirect heat and continue grilling, flipping once, 3-4 minutes per side. Using tongs, lift steak and sear both edges (the bone side and the fat-cap side) for 1-2 minutes per side to render out some of the fat. Grill steak to desired temperature, 14-18 minutes total or until an instant-read thermometer registers 120° for rare (steak will carry over to 125°, or medium-rare, as it rests).

Step 3

Transfer steak to a carving board; let rest for 10 minutes. Slice across the grain, season with coarse sea salt, and serve.

Baking Sheet Quesadilla

Baking Sheet Quesadilla

In our family we all love quesadillas.  My grandkids would eat it everyday!  I mean what’s not to love?  It’s crunchy on the outside and gooey cheese on the inside.  Not to mention you can garnish it with guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa, cheese, sour cream, or whatever your heart desires.

But have you ever tried making quesadillas for the entire family?  I know it’s pretty easy, just like making a grilled cheese sandwich.  But even grilled cheese sandwiches take time to make and someone, usually me, always ends  up eating last.  So if you’re aiming for a family meal together grilled cheese sandwiches and individual quesadillas are probably not the way to go.

That’s why I love Baking Sheet Quesadillas.  It’s easy, delicious, can be put together in advance, and best of all the whole family can share the meal together!

Really you can stuff this quesadilla with just about anything you want then pop it in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes and you’re done.  But one of my favorite stuffing is taco meat and cheese, you can’t go wrong with that combination!

I usually make my taco filling without packaged taco seasoning, but you can definitely use a packet when making yours.  I use ground beef, but it can be made with ground turkey or chicken or ground impossible meat for a plant based option.

Here’s my recipe, feel free to adapt it to your tastes!  By the way you will need 2 baking sheets each about 1″ deep with sides to make this recipe. I use 11×9 baking sheets because I bake it in my Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, but you can use a larger sheet and bake it in your regular oven.

Baking Sheet Quesadilla

Ingredients:

1 Tbs. Olive Oil

1 lb. ground beef (or the meat of your choice)

1 Tbs. Onion Powder

1 1/2 Tbs. Garlic Powder

1/2 Tbs. Ground Cumin

2 Tbs. Chili Powder

1 Bunch Fresh Cilantro chopped

1 Package Flour Tortillas

1 Cup Shredded Cheddar and Jack Cheese Mix

1/2 cup Salsa

Cooking Spray (I use avocado oil)

Toppings: Cilantro, Sour Cream, Guacamole, Salsa, Shredded Cheese, etc. (all optional)

Directions:

Heat Olive Oil in a skillet.

Add Ground meat and cook until it starts to brown.

Add powdered spices and mix well.

Cook until meat is crumbly.

Stir in 1/2 of the chopped cilantro.

Set aside.

Spray 1 baking sheet with cooking spray

Arrange 1 layer of tortillas on the sheet – they must over lap and half of each tortilla must hang over the sides of the sheet.  Place tortillas in the middle so that the bottom of the sheet is completely covered.

Evenly spread taco meat over the tortilla layer.

Sprinkle shredded cheese over meat.

Spread salsa over all.

Fold the hanging portions of tortillas over the filling using more tortillas to cover the middle.  Make sure there are no gaps or holes on the top.

Place second baking sheet over the tortillas with the bottom of the pan directly on top of the folded tortillas.

Bake in a pre-heated 425° oven for 20-30 minutes or until the tortillas are brown and crispy.  Do not burn.

Remove from oven and cut into squares.

Serve hot with toppings so everyone can top it with their favorites.
