Grilled Rib-eye Steaks with Miso Butter

Post  justmecookin on Mon Jun 22, 2009 10:44 am

Grilled Rib-eye Steaks with Miso Butter

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons plus 1 tsp. white or yellow miso paste
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh chives
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 boneless rib-eye steaks (3/4 to 1 in. thick)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 sweet onions, such as Walla Walla or Maui
About 3 tbsp. olive oil, divided

In a small bowl, stir together butter, miso, chives, and garlic. Spoon butter mixture onto a square of plastic wrap, fold plastic over butter from the top and the bottom, and use your hands to form it into a log shape about 1 1/2 in. thick. Twist sides to close. Put in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.

Meanwhile, rinse steaks, pat dry, and season well with salt and pepper; set aside at room temperature, 15 to 25 minutes. Peel onions and cut in half crosswise. Trim about 1/2 in. off rounded sides of each onion so halves lie flat. Rub onions with some olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-high heat (you can hold your hand 1 to 2 in. above cooking grate for only 3 to 4 seconds). Grill onions 2 minutes, then add steaks and grill until nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes.

Turn everything over. Onions will need another 6 to 8 minutes, until they're softened and nicely browned. For steaks, cook an additional 2 to 4 minutes for rare, 5 to 7 minutes for medium-rare, and 8 to 15 minutes for well done (cut to check).

Top each steak with 2 tsp. miso butter (you will have some butter left over). Serve with onions and a simple green salad if you like. Makes 4 servings

Spice-Rubbed Smoke-Roasted Chicken

Post  justmecookin on Mon Jun 22, 2009 10:56 am

Spice-Rubbed Smoke-Roasted Chicken

1 cup (about 3 oz.) hickory, mesquite, or applewood chips (optional)
12 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/3 cup chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/3 cup chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh-ground pepper
1 chicken (4 to 5 lb.)

In a medium bowl, cover wood chips (if using) in water. Let soak at least 30 minutes; drain just before using. In a food processor, combine garlic, chili powder, thyme, rosemary, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Process until mixture forms a paste.

Rinse chicken inside and out; pat dry. Press down on the breastbone of the chicken to flatten the bird slightly; rub the paste evenly over all the skin.

Prepare your grill for indirect heat. The temperature inside your grill should be between 350° and 400° (insert a long-stemmed thermometer through lid vent to measure temperature). If using a gas grill, place all the chips in the metal smoking box or in a foil pan directly on the heat in a corner. If using a charcoal grill, scatter half of the wood chips over the coals.

Place the chicken over the drip pan, breast side down. Cover barbecue with lid. If using a charcoal grill, adjust vents so that they're open halfway. Cook 40 minutes, then turn the chicken over (if using charcoal, scatter another 20 briquets over coals, along with the remaining wood chips). Cover barbecue again.

Continue cooking chicken until a thermometer inserted through the thickest part of breast to bone reaches 170°, about 40 minutes longer. Transfer to a board or platter and let rest 10 minutes under a tent of foil. Carve to serve. Makes 6 servings
