Italian Glazed Ribeye


10 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped

1 tablespoon kosher salt

½ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon white pepper

3 (10-ounce) boneless beef ribeye steaks, cut 1 inch thick



Place the garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, and salt into a mortar or small bowl, and mash into a coarse paste. Stir in the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and white pepper until evenly blended. Scrape half of the mixture into a separate small bowl; set aside. Spread the remaining half of the herb mixture evenly over the steaks. Set aside to marinate for 1 hour.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

Cook the steaks on the preheated grill for 7 minutes, then turn over, and coat with the reserved herb mixture. Continue cooking 7 minutes more for medium-well, or until your desired degree of doneness has been reached.


Baked Smoked Pork Chops



6 smoked pork loin chops

1 1/3 cups ketchup

1 ¼ cups water

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon butter

1 ½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 1/8 teaspoons ground cloves



Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place six pork chops in lightly greased (any cooking spray will do) baking dish.

In small sauce pan over medium heat combine ketchup, water, brown sugar, lemon juice, butter, Worcestershire sauce, and ground cloves.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Cook for 15 minutes.

Pour sauce mixture over chops and place in oven for 20-30 minutes at 400°F. The chops may be cooked at 350°F oven for 30-35 minutes.
