Grilled Red wine Vinaigrette Rib eye with rosemary (Medium Well)

Nothing like grilled steak in the summer for the 4th of July. What better way to celebrate the country’s independence, than with nice juicy marinated steaks?


4 USDA choice grade Rib eye steaks (2in thickness)
1 12oz bottle of red wine vinaigrette dressing
2 tbsp dried rosemary
2 tbsp crack black pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp ancho chili powder
1 tbsp smoked paprika

Place Rib eyes in large baking dish, add vinaigrette dressing and marinate in the frig overnight.

Preheat Gas grill
Take marinated Steaks out of the frig and bring them to room temp (about 2 hrs prior to grilling). Transfer steaks to a shallow baking dish and discard marinate. Season steaks liberally with the six remaining spices. Transfer steaks to the grill over a “direct heat” and sear on each side about 3-5 minutes. Then move steaks to an “indirect heat” cooking on both sides until a medium wellness is achieved (about 155 degrees internal temp). Make sure you keep the grill’s lid down, while cooking the steaks. Remove steaks from the grill and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes. During this time, the steaks will continue to cook and the juices will spread through the meat. Enjoy!


  1. Hey Jonathan!

    I just came across your blog while looking for foodies in the OC area on Food Buzz. I love that you experiment with vegetarian options too...that black bean tofu burger looks pretty amazing, as do all of the cookies and pies and cakes!

    I didn't have your email address, so I thought leaving the comment would be the best way to contact you and invite you to an upcoming culinary exhibition at Macy's South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa! Hope you don't mind! :)

    Master Sommelier, TV personality, cookbook author and Macy's Culinary Council chef Andrea Robinson will be appearing at Macy's South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa for a free wine and food pairing demonstration on July 30. She also will be introducing her new line of stemware which she has named "The One", as it is a single glass suitable for both red and white wines. Furthermore, Andrea will also be on hand to sign copies of her new cookbook, Great Wine Made Simple. I had the pleasure of meeting Andrea when I came to Atlanta, and she is really so much fun and a joy to be around, so I know you would enjoy this demonstration.

    Check out the details, and please let me know if you'd be interested in attending!

    Andrea will pour forth a lesson on the basics of proper food and wine partners while she shares some of her favorite recipes for you to sample. This Master Sommelier and Chef will also introduce her new stemware collection - “The One”™ - which is available at Macy’s and is a line created to take the guesswork out of choosing the proper wine glass. Customers making a purchase of The One™ stemware the day of the event will receive a complimentary copy of Andrea’s 2010 Wine Buying Guide for Everyone.

    Following the cooking demonstration, Andrea will be available to meet and greet customers and sign copies of cookbook purchases made the day of the event. Andrea’s latest cookbook, Great Wine Made Simple, will be available for purchase the day of the event.
