 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Herbs de Provence Steak Rub

An absolute favorite go-to steak preparation. Make sure to find a quality Herbs de Provence blend that includes lavender.

Yield: 4 Servings

Four six-ounce steaks

2Tbsp Herbs de Provence

1½ Tbsp sea salt

2 tsp coarsely ground pepper

Combine the Herbs de Provence, sea salt and ground pepper in a bowl. Dry steaks with a paper towel, ensuring they are very dry. Generously cover the steaks with the rub on all sides, pushing the rub into each steak. Let set at room temperature for up to 30 minutes to give the rub time to integrate into the steaks.

Place steaks on a hot grill for 3–4 minutes per side for medium rare on a one-inch thick steak.

Remove steaks from grill, place on a cutting board under foil and let them rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Pairs well with oven-roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables or with arugula and slivers of manchego cheese with a balsamic vinaigrette.
