    This looks and sounds incredible! I love that you make your own spice blend and chimichurri, too. Nothing can beat homemade blends and sauces. The flavors end up being so so fresh and there’s no looking back! This is the perfect dinner for dining al fresco this summer with a glass of your fave beer or wine 🙂

    We love our steaks and your cowboy steak is exactly the type we’d choose. Hubby swears meat on the bone. We always pick up our pork chops on the bone too. The sauce looks and sounds amazing. It would be great to have on hand with any meat. I will pick up some chilis for the chimichurri sauce. Will be trying out your rub too. We’ve got several rub recipes and love trying new ones.

    My poor husband almost never gets a nice, big steak, because I never cook them! But we visited friends in Wyoming awhile back, and they served him the biggest, juiciest steak I’ve ever seen. It kind of looked like this one! 😀 This looks so easy and delicious- I should make it for him!!

    The marble on that steak is amazing! I’m practically drooling at my computer. I’ll have to check out the rub – I love a good kick when it comes to grilling. This will be on my BBQ once summer hits.
