T-Bone Steaks with Herb Rub

If you haven’t tried these T-Bone Steaks with Herb Rub, you’re missing out! 

I love a good t-bone steak. It’s an old school favorite that I plan on grilling any chance I get. However, these T-Bone steaks are slathered with a flavorful oregano, basil, and garlic seasoning rub. Then these steaks are grilled just right. Reverse searing forms a beautiful crust, where the herb paste caramelizes to perfection. 

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 seasoning mixture to both sides of steaks. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat grill for 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-bone steak with herb rub in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
