What's this?

This cowgirl cut steak recipe from Lydia Mondavi starts with our Napa Valley inspired rub with notes of red wine, fennel and garlic before getting smoked and reverse-seared to perfection. Substitute any rub of your choice, but we highly recommend trying out the limited Winemakers Rub by Rob & Lydia Mondavi for ultimate flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 New York or Rib Eye Steak, 1" or more

  • As Needed Traeger Winemaker's Napa Valley Rub

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 2

    Season all sides of the steak generously with Traeger Winemaker's Rub.
  • 3

    Place steak directly on the grill grate and smoke for 60 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside to rest.
  • 4

    Increase temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed.

    When the grill is hot, place the steak back on the grill grate. Sear until steaks reach desired internal temperature, 125-130℉ for medium rare.
