Grill night

Graul’s has ribeye steaks on sale and they are great with this fabulous dry rub.  To keep it simple we added corn on the cob and to keep it interesting, the tempura Old Bay green beans.  All were a hit with our friends last Sunday and hoping you enjoy this Sunday.

Dry rub

  • 2 TB whole allspice
  • 2 TB black peppercorns
  • 1 TB cumin seeds
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 7 whole cloves
  • 2 TB sweet paprika
  • 1 TB chipotle powder
  • 1 TB ancho chile powder
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Toast allspice, peppercorns, cumin, cinnamon and cloves in a nonstick pan over medium heat, tossing frequently.  When fragrant, remove from heat and let cool.  Grind in a spice grinder and place in a bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and whisk together.  Keep the leftover in a jar for another time.

About 45 minutes before you are ready to eat, rub both sides of steak with rub.  Let sit at room temperature.  Before grilling, spray with cooking spray and then grill 5 minutes on one side, 4 on the other and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

Old Bay Tempura Green beans

  • 1/2 green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 TB cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Old Bay
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • vegetable oil

Pour about 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a wide saucepan and heat to simmering.  Whisk flour, cornstarch, baking powder and Old Bay in a bowl.  Whisk in club soda.  In batches, dip beans into batter and fry in oil for about 3 minutes.  Remove from oil and let drain on paper towels and sprinkle with Old Bay.
