What's this?

Take a page out of the Queen of BBQ’s book for steak perfection. Thick-cut rib-eyes are reverse seared on the Traeger then topped with a garlic compound butter for a rich and delicious finish.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup plus 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature

  • 2 Tablespoon finely chopped shallots

  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic

  • 4 (1-1/2 inch thick) rib-eye steaks

  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper

Steps

  • 1

    In a medium saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Sauté shallots until they are tender and lightly browned. Add 1 tablespoon garlic and continue to sauté for an additional minute. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly for 5 minutes.
  • 2

    Mix the remaining 1/2 cup of butter to the shallot and garlic mixture.
  • 3

    Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and add butter mixture onto it.
  • 4

    Cover the butter with plastic wrap twisting one end to close. Form the butter into a log shape and twist the opposite end to make a tight package. Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze until needed.
  • 5

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 225°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 6

    Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • 7

    Place steaks on the grill grate and smoke for 45 to 60 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 115°F.
  • 8

    Remove garlic butter log from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature while steaks cook.
  • 9

    Remove steaks from grill, increase the temperature to 500°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 10

    Allow steaks to rest for 10 minutes while grill preheats. Slice garlic butter into 1/4 inch slices and set aside.
  • 11

    Place steaks back on preheated grill and sear for 5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature registers 125°F. Place a couple slices of garlic butter on each steak immediately after removing from grill.
  • 12

    Let steaks rest for 10 minute. During the rest, the steak will rise 5°F to a finished temperature of 130°F for medium-rare. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
