Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Parsley, Celery and Blue Cheese
2 bone-in rib eye steaks
2-3 teaspoons coarse sea salt (such as admiralty)
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Parsley & Celery Salad
1 ½ cups chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley
1 cup thinly chopped celery, the innermost parts and leaves
juice from half a lemon
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
salt & pepper
3 ounces great quality blue cheese, crumbled (such as Rogue River Blue)
For the steak:
Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper. If you can, season the steaks at least an hour in advance. Even better if you season and then let them rest, uncovered, in the fridge overnight.
Cook over low flames and hot coals for 5 minutes per side for medium-rare
Let rest for 15 minutes.
For the salad:
While the steaks are cooking prepare the salad. Combine the parsley and celery in a bowl. Add the lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
While the steaks are still hot and resting top with crumbled blue cheese. Finish with the Parsley & Celery salad.
Serve alongside grilled vegetables or tuck slices of the steak, the salad and blue cheese into a split baguette for a killer steak sandwich.
