Hello, my beef-loving peeps!
Do Y’all get as excited about this time of year as I do?
Yes, Mother’s Day is just a few days away, and I do love anything that celebrates the fact that I have some amazing kiddos, but, the real reason I get so happy is that grilling season has begun!
Can I get an Amen people?
The sun is shining here in the Pacific Northwest, and that means it is time to head outside and grill everything we can get our little hands on, especially ribeyes.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I love all beef.
But when it comes to grilling there is just one steak that I dream about, and drool over, and that is a nice juicy ribeye.
If we are talking about taste, the Certified Angus Beef ® brand is known for its marbling. All cattle start off eating grass, but the Certified Angus Beef ® brand cattle are finished on grain to ensure all of that wonderful marbelization.
Marbelization = juicy, tender, flavorful beef 😋
All beef is not created equal!
Certified Angus Beef® brand is more selective than USDA Choice and Prime. They have 10 exact standards that each cut must meet. Which means that you can be assured that your Certified Angus Beef® brand beef will always be the best cut you can buy.
Certified Angus Beef is not just a brand, they are a family.
They were established in 1978 and have been supporting local farmers and ranchers ever since. They ensure quality, as well as support family business, which makes them even more awesome!
Now, let’s take a minute to talk about how fabulous this meal was?
OhhEmmGeeeee it was amazeballs!!
Between the wonderfully tender and juicy steak with the hint of Mexican flavor from the rub, and the deeeelicious lobster bathed in Cilantro Garlic Lime Butter?

This has now risen to the ranks of MUST MAKE meal for any special occasion.

Using kitchen shears, carefully cut down the back of the lobster shell, stopping just before the tail fin. Carefully open the shell with your fingers.
Rinse the tail with cold water to remove vein and any bits of shell. Pat dry with paper towels. Release meat from the shell by running your thumb up underneath it, leaving the tail end still attached. Place Lift the meat up and place it on top of the shell.
Light a grill to medium-high heat.
In a small sauce pot, combine the butter, garlic, lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, and a pinch of salt. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat.
In another bowl, combine the paprika, cumin and chili powder with 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Sprinkle the lobster tails with the seasoning and then rub the mixture all over the steaks.
Oil the grate and grill the steaks over medium-high heat, turning once until slightly charred and medium-rare, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until the internal temperature is 135 degrees F. Transfer the steaks to plates and let the steaks stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Place the limes on the grill, cut side down, and remove when you turn the steaks At the same time, place the lobster tails on the grill. Carefully drizzle the tails with the cilantro lime butter a few times while grilling. Cook until the internal temperature of the lobster is 140. Remove from the heat immediately. Serve with extra cilantro lime butter.
