BBQ Cooking: Wasabi Rib Eyes

BBQ cooking - wasabi grilled rib eye

Hubby brought home two rib eye steaks for some BBQ cooking. I prowled through the kitchen, trying to decide on a good grilling marinade. I love marinades, by the way. I found an interesting horseradish sauce that had never been opened. It came in a Christmas gift basket, and to be honest, I had forgotten about it. I decided it would be the base for my steak marinade recipe for the day.

I tasted the horseradish sauce and discovered that it had a delightful flavor. It wasn’t too hot or too overwhelming, so I added some other ingredients for the marinade. Here’s what I came up with, and it turned out great!

I cooked my steaks on a hot grill for just a few minutes on each side. I like my steak Georgia style – black on the outside and red on the inside (black and red, like the GA Bulldogs). Okay, maybe I don’t like the meat black, but I do like it dark brown, with a few charred bits.
