BBQ Rib-Eye - You Won't Believe It! Recipe
- 2 (10 ounce) marbled beef rib-eye steaks
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 (12 fluid ounce) cans cola-flavored carbonated beverage
- 2 cups barbeque sauce
- 8 slices bacon
step 1: Score steaks on both sides in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. Punch the fatty areas with the tip of the knife. Sprinkle a thin coating of garlic powder over both sides of the steaks, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Rub to get the seasoning into all of the scores.
step 2: Place steaks in a shallow dish, and pour the cola over them. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours, turning steaks over every hour or so. During the last hour, coat the steaks with a thin layer of barbeque sauce.
step 3: Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
step 4: Lightly oil the grilling surface. Place steaks on the grill over high heat, and cook until almost burnt on each side, about 4 minutes per side. Reduce the grill's heat to medium-low, or move steaks to a cooler part, and place the bacon strips on top of them. Cover, and slow cook for 10 minutes per side.
step 5: Spread a thin layer of barbeque sauce over the steaks during the last few minutes of cooking, and allow it to cook until dry for a glazed effect.
