- 4 (1-inch thick) rib-eye steaks
- 1/2 teaspoon meat tenderizer
- 1/2 teaspoon accent
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
- Vegetable oil
After applying spices, stack steaks in shallow pan and cover. Place in refrigerator. Allow to marinate for a minimum of 4 hours. In some cases, you may want to marinate overnight. Let steaks set at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking.
Cooking the Steaks:
Let your charcoal burn down on your favorite cooker for about 1 hour until the coals are good and white. Get the cooker to 350 degrees F for optimum cooking temperature.
Place steaks on grill, close lid and let them cook for 6 to 8 minutes before turning. You are hoping to get good grill marks on the steaks at this time. After turning, cook to desired doneness. This is usually another 5 to 7 minutes.
After cooking to desired doneness, remove steaks from grill and place in aluminum pan and cover and seal the pan with foil. Place this in a warmer or on a warm part of the grill for 5 to 10 minutes. This seals in the juices and increases the tenderness.

Tips For Cooking a Good Steak
Courtesy Jeff White
First and foremost pick out a good cut of steak-good marbling and no gristle or large chunks of fat.
When cooking on an outdoor grill using charcoal, light fire and let fire burn down for about 30 to 45 minutes depending on how big a grill your using and how many steaks you are cooking.
The ideal cooking temperature is 350 degrees F.
For best results you want to handle the steaks as little as possible when cooking. Flip the steaks only once while on the grill if possible.
I think it is important to have the steaks marinade over night when possible.
There are many different ingredients you can use to marinade. The important thing is to find a mix of ingredients you like and enjoy working with.
Next you want to punch small holes in the meat with a knife or fork then add ingredients for seasoning. Rub the ingredients and the cooking oil into the meat and let it marinade for at least several hours, preferable overnight.
Ingredients to season with:
Any spice or ingredient of your choice
