Rib eye for dinner

Put together a couple nice rib eyes on Sunday for dinner. Nothing crazy with this cook but I just wanted to point out I used the Carne Crosta rub from Oakridge again.......I might be in love with this rub. These may have been the best steaks I have had the pleasure of enjoying.
Lockdowns aside ......I haven’t paid for an upper class meal in a long time, no one makes it as good as it is at home.

Nice! Steaks look great and so does everything else! Also agree on the Carne rub. High on the list for steaks for me.
The steaks were pretty big, more than a pound each. I tried leaving in a probe but it wasn’t thick enough I think to get a sold reading. I had 115 on the probe but went and checked with the instant and it was at 127 so pulled them right away. Rested for about 5 to 7 minutes as everything else was ready. Mine was thicker and just slightly over the perfect spot....the one in the pic. It still was just fabulous though.....Friday is a sirloin cap roast for the old man....Friday will be a treat for him, this cook looks like this....I’m going to leave more of the fat cap on, he likes that stuff.
Debating on the carne....not sure he is a taste the meat kind of guy.....salt n pepper usually does the trick.

Here is an older cook of the same stuff. That whole top layer is usually a 1/4 or so thick of fairly tender fat.

I did a rib eye and put down Oakridge SPOGOS and a lighter layer of Carne Crosta, best seasoned steak I have eaten. I’m trying it again Friday to make sure it was that good. I’ll let you know.
Oakridge is doing some quality stuff for sure!
I used Oakridge SPOGOS on some hash browns the other day.....it's good too. I find the CARNE CROSTA to be not overly salty. Just enough for a steak but it could be saltier. Out of instinct I would be inclined to use just a bit of SPOGOS and a considerable amount of CROSTA.
Let us know how it goes!
Tasty Looking meal! I have to agree its really disappointing to go out to a high priced restaurant and get a mediocre meal.
