Rib Eye Steak
- 1 double cut rib eye (35-40oz)
- 3/4 tbsp cracked black pepper
- 3 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tbsp lime juice (1 lime)
- 15 tbsp plus 1tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp chopped garlic
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp chopped parsley
- 8-10 oz yucca, peeled, julienned into matchsticks
- 1½ quarts vegetable oil. Enough for frying
- Salt & pepper to taste
-Sprinkle the cracked pepper evenly over the steak. Season to taste with salt.
-On a lightly oiled grill, pre-heated to 350 degrees, place the peppered steak down.
-Cook 3-5 minutes & flip the steak over. Cook another 3-5 minutes.
-The steak's thickness will determine how long to grill the steak. Your desired temperature will also determine this. (Example: Rare,medium rare, medium,medium well, or well done)
-If needed, the steak can be finished in a 350 degree oven, if the grill is too hot.
-Slowly cook the chopped garlic in a small sauce pot. Add 1 tsp of olive oil, and the salt.
-Don't brown the garlic. When you can smell the garlic starting to cook, add the rest of the olive oil, vinegar,& lime juice. Bring to a simmer.
-Take this off the heat & let it cool. When cool, add the parsley & cilantro.
-Using a deep pot, pre-heat the frying oil to 350 degrees. Be very careful, because hot oil can be dangerous. make sure there is ample room left in the pot after the yucca is added. Never leave the hot oil unattended.
-Using a mandoline (a sharp knife if there is not a mandoline available), cut the yucca into matchstick strips. Approx. 2 inches in length.
-Rinse the cut yucca thoroughly in water. Pat dry & fry until golden brown. Using a kitchen skimmer or a slotted spoon, remove the yucca from the oil & place on a paper towel. Immediately season with salt & pepper to taste.
-Let the oil cool. Discard or save for future use.
