Author: Traeger

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Difficulty Rating: 2/5
Ingredients:
  • 4 rib eye steaks, each at least 1-inch thick
  • 1/2 cup(s) (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoon(s) bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon(s) finely minced chives or green onion
  • 1 tablespoon(s) finely minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper
  • Traeger Prime Rib Rub, or coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preperation Steps
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, garlic, bourbon, chives, parsley, and salt and pepper and stir with a wooden spoon. (The flavored butter can be prepared ahead and refrigerated until serving time.)
  • When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes).
  • Generously season the steaks with the Traeger Prime Rib Rub. Arrange the steaks directly on the grill grate and smoke for 1 hour. Momentarily remove the steaks to a platter and set the temperature of your Traeger to 450 degrees F (High). Return the steaks to the grill grate and grill, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until done to your liking (135 degrees F for medium-rare). Transfer the steaks to a platter and immediately top each with a pat of the bourbon-flavored butter. Let the meat rest for 3 minutes before serving.
