I don't know about you, but as soon as the weather turns sunny, I want to be grilling pretty much every meal outside! And with Father's Day coming up soon, I wanted to prepare something for my husband for the grill that he would absolutely love.
He's always preferred great quality meat, so I went to The Fresh Market near our home for some inspiration.
Their meat counter looked absolutely fantastic! If you've never been there before, The Fresh Market is a specialty grocer that curates high quality food for any dining occasion or cooking ability. They have exceptional meat and seafood, together with a wonderful range of organic fresh produce and some great low-prep meal solutions, too!
I wanted something special for Father's Day so I checked out their range of Prime Beef. USDA Prime is aged for tenderness for a minimum of 14 days, is expertly cut and trimmed, and has an unbeatable flavor. I chose some awesome Prime Rib Eye Steaks which looked amazing. I also picked up a handy Vegetable Grilling Kit (although they also had a Grilling Squash Medley which is perfect for low carbers!).
They had some great salad options at the deli counter like BLT Salad and and a Thai Lobster Salad, but for my husband I chose the cucumber dill salad which looked SO refreshing. I also picked up a bag of avocados because – well – they were ripe and fresh and it just needed to be done! This store has SO many foods that I just love!
The Floral Department at The Fresh Market looked beautiful, and I couldn't leave with adding some flowers to my cart, too!
I didn't want to drown the steak in a sauce, so I decided to make a dry rub for it. Now, my husband doesn't really like spicy food, but he DOES like the heat from mustard. I've seen mustard rubs before – they're often for pork or chicken but there's no reason why they couldn't work with steak. Also, they nearly always include sugar in the rub, which I decided to omit to make it lower in carbs.
How to Make a Mustard Dry Rub for Grilling Steak
To make the rub I combined dry mustard powder, onion powder, dried oregano, ground cumin and garlic powder, together with some salt and pepper.
I spread the rub over the steaks and gently massaged it into the meat.
Meanwhile, I transferred the veggie grilling kit to a grilling basket and got them on the grill. When the steaks were room temperature I placed them on the grill too.
Everything looked and smelled amazing!
I served everything up together with the cucumber dill salad and some sliced avocado. The mustard dry rub was the perfect seasoning and you could really taste the difference with those Prime steaks! My husband really loved the seasoning on the steaks and the grilled vegetables – it was perfect!
