Serves: 4 // Prep time: 20 minutes | Marinating time: 2 to 24 hours | Grilling time: 6 to 8 minutes

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • .25 oz fresh Italian parsley
  • .25 oz fresh rosemary
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 lemons

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 4 boneless rib eye steaks, each 8 to 10 oz and about 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • .5 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp kosher salt


  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard


  • .5 cups unsalted butter



  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless rib eye steaks, each 8 to 10 ounces and about 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat


  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves

  • Kosher salt


  1. In a medium bowl whisk the marinade ingredients. Place the steaks in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place on a plate, and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours, turning occasionally. 

  2. In a small bowl blend the butter ingredients, including ½ teaspoon salt. Transfer the mixture to a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a log about 1-½ inches thick. Refrigerate until firm, 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

  3. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  4. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F). 

  5. Remove the steaks from the bag and wipe off the excess marinade with your hands, leaving a thin coating. Season the steaks evenly with 1 teaspoon salt.

  6. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). Remove from the grill, top with some of the lemon-pepper butter, and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm.
