the Ingredients

20151023095405 Row Redmeat 29


  • 1 large handful fresh thyme sprigs (about 36 sprigs)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless rib eye steaks, each 340 to 455 grams and about 2.5 centimeters thick

Special Equipment

  • 2 small handfuls hickory or mesquite wood chips


  • 01 Strip the leaves from the thyme sprigs and reserve the stems for later. Finely chop enough of the leaves to give you 2 tablespoons of chopped thyme. Mix the thyme leaves in a small bowl with the remaining paste ingredients, including 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  • 02 Brush the paste evenly over both sides of the steaks. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  • 03 Soak the wood chips in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • 04 Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and season evenly with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
  • 05 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (230° to 290°C).
  • 06 Brush the cooking grate clean. Drain and add the wood chips and thyme stems to the charcoal or to the smoker box of a gas grill, following manufacturer's instructions, and close the lid. When smoke appears, grill the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm.
