  • 2 boneless ribeye steaks about 1.5 inches thick
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons Hey Grill Hey Beef Rub or equal parts salt, pepper, and garlic powder


  • Preheat the grill. Open your propane tank (if necessary) and ignite half of the burners on your grill and set to medium. Leave the other burners off. The target temperature on your grill thermometer should read around 300-350 degrees F. If necessary, turn up or down the burners to reach the desired temperature.
  • Season. Brush both sides of each steak with olive oil to promote a sear and help prevent sticking. Season the steaks on both sides with the Hey Grill Hey Beef Rub.
  • Grill. Place the steaks over the indirect heat side of the grill and close the lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then flip, close the lid again, and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Check temperature. Insert an instant-read meat thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of around 125°F (57°C). Adjust the grilling time based on your desired level of doneness.
  • Sear. Move the steaks directly over the hot burners, positioning them at a 45-degree angle to the grill grates. Grill the steaks for approximately 2-3 minutes, leaving the grill open, then rotate 45 degrees to create those appealing diamond-shaped grill marks. Check the internal temperature of your steaks again, as they should now be around 135 degrees F for medium rare.
  • Rest. Once the steaks reach the target temperature, remove them from the grill and let them rest on a cutting board for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a tender and juicy result.
  • Slice and enjoy. After the resting period, slice the steaks against the grain into thin strips. Serve the grilled steak with your preferred side dishes, such as grilled vegetables, baked potatoes, or a fresh salad.


Note: Cooking times can vary depending on the thickness of the steaks and the heat of your grill. Always use an instant-read meat thermometer to ensure the desired level of doneness. Adjust the grilling time accordingly.
