Grilled Cajun Rib Eyes

Can you say DELICIOUS?!?! This rub was wonderful on steak. We 'broke in' our new gas grill with this recipe while watching the Packers win! What could be better than that? We grilled 3 rib eyes and one sirloin and have plenty of rub left for the next batch. You can cut back a bit on the cayenne if you think it will be to spicy. We did not need BBQ sauce or steak sauce.

Grilled Cajun Rib Eyes

 4 (8 inch) Rib Eye steaks
Worcestershire sauce

Cajun Steak Rub

1/2 cup smoky paprika
1/3 cup salt
1/3 cup garlic powder
1/3 cup onion powder
2 tbs dried thyme
2 tbs dried oregano
2 tbs black pepper
2 tbs cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until well blended. Place any unused rub in an airtight container and use for up to 3 months.

Place 4 steaks in a shallow 13x9 inch pan. Rub the Cajun rub into the meat on both sides. Sprinkle generously with Worcestershire sauce on both sides and cover and let sit at room temperature, for 30 minutes. Preheat grill on high heat and place steaks directly on grill and close lid. Grill for 6 minutes, on each side for medium rare, and to 8 minutes on each side, for medium. Baste with BBQ sauce, if desired. Always use tongs to turn steaks, to keep juices in. Sinfully good!
