- 2 tbsp sea salt
- 2 cups hot water
- 6 cups cold water
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp dried rosemary
- 1 tbsp maple sugar
- 1 tsp ground sage
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
3 lb, bone-in beef rib steaks (I used 3, 1 lb, 1 inch thick steaks)
- To make the brine, combine the sea salt in the hot water and dissolve in a large mixing bowl. Then add in the remaining cups of cold water to bring the mixture to room temperature.
- Once room temperature, submerge the steaks in the brine, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and place the bowl in the fridge to sit for 4-6 hours.
- After 4-6 hours have passed, turn the grill on to preheat.
- To prepare the steaks, remove them from the brine, pat dry with a paper towel, and place in a large dish.
- Combine the rub ingredients together in a bowl, then sprinkle over the steak, lightly rubbing in over all sides.
- Place the steaks on a hot grill and cook 7 minutes on the first side. Then flip over to cook another 3-5 minutes or more, depending the thickness and how well-done you like your meat.
- Remove from the grill immediately and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to lock in the juices, then cut against the grain and serve!
