Spice-Rubbed Rib Eye with Homemade Steak Sauce

A steakhouse-worthy rib eye with tangy homemade steak sauce

I came home from a bridal shower on Saturday and found my husband in extreme spring cleaning mode. Our backyard was swept up, the plants were watered, and the grill was pristine. As a reward, we enjoyed a steakhouse-style dinner out back, complete with a spice-rubbed grilled rib eye, homemade steak sauce, loaded baked potatoes, and roasted asparagus. The steak recipe comes from Bobby Flay's Grill It and calls for rubbing the rib eye in a savory spice blend, grilling it over a high flame, and then serving it alongside a tangy homemade steak sauce. The spice rub forms a crust on the steak and gives it a nice char while the inside stays a perfect medium rare, but the sauce is the real hero. It's tangy, with a familiar spice from the horseradish and a complex sweetness from the molasses and honey. We were drizzling it over every bite of our meat and even on our baked potatoes at the end. It's going to be our go-to recipe for grilled steak all summer long.
