Whiskey Butter Ribeyes
1 Tbs New Mexican chili powder or chili powder
1 Tbs chipotle chili powder
1/2 Tbs smoked paprika
1/2 Tbs white pepper
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbs raw sugar
2 (1-inch thick) bone-in ribeye steaks (about 1 lb each)
2 slices whiskey butter
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 shallots, soaked in whiskey
3 tsp parsley, minced
1/2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp Jack Daniel’s whiskey
1/2 tsp sea salt or salt
ground white pepper, or to taste
For rub, combine chili powders, paprika, white pepper, black pepper and sugar in a bowl.
Prepare grill for direct cooking over low heat (about 300° F). Meanwhile, let meat come to room temperature about 20 minutes before grilling. Pat meat with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Just before grilling, brush steaks with oil. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of rub and a little salt on steaks; pat in with fingers.
Place steaks directly over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Turn and grill 5 more minutes for medium-rare doneness. Remove from grill. Let rest at least 5 minutes.
Top hot steaks with whiskey butter. To serve, slice steaks.
For whiskey butter, combine butter, shallots, parsley, mustard, Worcestershire, Jack Daniel’s, salt and white pepper. Mix well. Drop butter in spoonfuls onto wax paper. Roll in plastic and smooth out to form a round log. Refrigerate until hard and easy to cut, at least 3 hours. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
