1 TBSP crushed peppercorn
1 tsp + 1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp light brown sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp + 1 tsp onion powder
1/2 C ketchup
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 TBSP dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 C water
4 (3/4 lb) rib eye steaks, 1 inch thick
Note: Using kosher salt will insure that the salt cooks into the food instead of being washed away by the juices as would regular table salt. If you would like to use regular table salt reduce the amount by half.
Begin with the steak rub mixture. In a mixing bowl, add the peppercorns, 1 tsp chili powder, salt, light brown sugar, garlic powder and 1/4 tsp onion powder. Mix well and set aside while you let the steaks stand at room temperature 30 minutes prior to grilling.
When your steaks are ready for the grill, rub both sides of the steak with the peppercorn mixture. Be sure to press into the meat. Then, brush both sides of the steaks with the olive oil and heat the grill to high temperature.
Grill the steaks 12 minutes for medium done steaks, turning once during grilling time. Allow steaks to rest 10 minutes before serving.
While you’re waiting for the steaks to rest, create the barbecue sauce. Simmer the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, wine vinegar, dark brown sugar, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp onion powder, pepper and water in a sauce pan for about 10 minutes. Make sure to stir often to insure the brown sugar dissolves completely. After the 10 minutes are up, pour the sauce over the steaks before serving or use as a dip on the side.
