Valentine's Day Herb-Rubbed T-Bone Steaks

We love a good T-Bone steak. It’s an old-school favorite that we grill any chance we get. These T-Bone steaks are slathered with an oregano, basil, and garlic spice mixture and then grilled. Reverse searing creates a beautiful, flavorful crust that allows the herb paste to caramelize perfectly. Delicious!

Ingredients for T-Bone Steaks with Herb Rub:

  • 2 T-Bone steaks, at least 1″ thick
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Fresh basil 
  • Fresh oregano leaves
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Coarse salt 
  • Black pepper

How to Make It:

  • Please note that you will need a reliable instant-read thermometer for this recipe!
  •  Place herb rub ingredients into a food processor and pulse about 7-10 times until finely chopped. Adjust salt as needed.
  •  Apply the seasoning mixture to both sides of the steaks. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  •  Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F or medium heat.
  •  While your grill is heating up, remove steaks from the refrigerator and let them stand at room temperature.
  •  Place steaks onto the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired doneness. I recommend medium-well doneness for this recipe. Refer to my steak temperature guide for more information.

Reverse Searing T-Bone Steaks:

  • Once the steaks have reached an internal temperature within 8-10 degrees of your desired doneness, it’s time to reverse sear. 
  • If using a pellet grill, remove steaks from the grill and increase heat to high (500 degrees). Once it comes up to temp, place the steaks back on.
  • If using a gas grill or charcoal grill, move the steaks directly above the fire.
  • Reverse sear the T-bone steaks over intense heat for about 1-2 minutes per side or until a nice golden brown crust forms. Watch for burning.
  • Remove steaks from the grill and place them onto a plate—tent with aluminum foil (optional). Let steaks rest for up to 10 minutes, then serve.

Store leftover T-bones steak with herb rub in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
