​Grilled Steak Rub


A favourite marinade for steaks especially Rib Eye, this amount is good for rubbing 2 to 3 lbs of meat. The recipe is inspired by a similar one created by Chef Carl of Terra in Napa Valley.


  • 4 cloves garlic minced fine, for best results use a garlic press
  • 4 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB each of dried oregano, basil and thyme (omit if you wish)
  • Splash of fish sauce (omit if you wish)
  • Salt and ground pepper



  1. Combine the above and rub over the steaks.
  2. To serve Italian style,slice the steaks thinly and cover them with a salad of Chiffon leaves of watercress, arugula, frisée and / or other peppery/bitter greens that have been dressed with:
    • 2 TB Lemon juice
    • 1 TB fish sauce
    • 2 TB olive oil
    • salt & pepper

  3. Finish with Slices of Parmesan.



Great with a side of new potatoes - pair with big, bold reds!
