Cowboy Ribeye Steak Recipe

I found this recipe in a free magazine my wife picked up on one of our trips to Nashville. The ribeye is my favorite steak, and that’s what the recipe was created for. I’ve never marinated a steak overnight before, which is what the recipe called for. But I followed the instructions and the end result was incredibly delicious, juicy, spicy steaks. This unique steak recipe is well worth trying!

Cowboy Ribeye Steak


1 thick ribeye steak per person

olive oil

kosher salt

W. Donnie’s Power Powder*

2 parts ancho chile powder

1 part chipotle chile powder

1 part new mexico chile powder

1 part paprika

1 part garlic powder

1 part dried mustard

½ part sugar

½ part kosher salt

Ribeye Relish

4 plum or other small tomatoes, diced

½ c red onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 T fresh cilantro, minced

1 avocado, diced

1 small jalapeno, minced

juice from ½ lime

1 t kosher salt

½ t black pepper


  • Prepare Power Powder spice rub
  • Rub each steak with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt
  • Apply spice rub
  • Wrap steaks individually in plastic wrap
  • Refrigerate overnight
  • 30 minutes before grilling, remove steaks from refrigerator and plastic wrap
  • Prepare Ribeye Relish
  • Grill steaks to desired doneness (I prefer medium rare) and allow to rest at least 5 minutes before serving
  • Serve steaks with relish



-I used 1 T as the measure for the spice rub, which made the right amount for 4 steaks

-I get the majority of my spices from

-I used regular chili powder instead of new mexico chili powder
