Cherry Wood Fire Rib Eye Steak

  • 2

I went to a local butcher today and got 4 nice size rib eyes. In a normal store these would cost $14-$16 a pound. This butcher is actually the slaughter house and they have a small retail operation out front. The steak is choice grade and is only $4.49 a pound.

This recipe for Rib Eyes also works well on New York cut steaks, Elk steaks, Venison and Moose steaks. You do not need to own a wood fired oven to make this recipe. These steaks can be cooked over lump charcoal or an open wood fire. It is a great recipe for camping.

I encourage you to try this recipe this summer.
