Gateway Bloody Marys, Gateway to the North Steak Butter, and Grilled Ribeye Steak

Today's #SummerGrilling recipe has been sponsored by The Spice House, JoyJolt, and Hamilton Beach, however, all opinions are my own. #ad  #SummerGrilling #JoyJolt #TheSpiceHouse

All this week we will be sharing amazing summer grilling recipes, and our readers have a chance to win some amazing prizes from our generous sponsors.  You're not going to want to miss a single day! #ad #SummerGrilling

I'm excited about today's recipes!  You are going to get not one, but three recipes that will become staples for your summer BBQing. As these are more techniques, versus actual recipes, I know you are going to love how easy this is!

This is our menu:  Gateway Bloody Marys, Ribeye Steaks and Gateway to the North Steak Butter.  Our side dish was air fried french fries.  Doesn't this sound amazing?  Thanks to the Indoor Grill by Hamilton Beach, this was a weekday meal!

Ahead of time, soften one stick of butter to full room temperature.  Add 1 tablespoon of Gateway to the North from The Spice House and stir until the spices are well incorporated. Spoon the butter in molds.  Refrigerate until firm.

Mix up your Bloody Marys. In a saucer, add 2 teaspoons of Gateway to the North spice mix. I love the sweet and heat that comes with this spice!  With a lime, go around the edge of your glass.  You might notice that I add a large swipe on my glass. I love this spice mix!  Add ice, 2 oz vodka,1 t Gateway to the North spice and 6 oz of your favorite Bloody Mary to a beautiful JoyJolt Stella glasses. I love these simple and elegant glasses for so many of my cocktails but for a Bloody Mary, they are gorgeous! We like to garnish ours with leafy celery sticks, a wedge of lime and meat sticks (also from Aldi's!) but if you are feeling really special, try the candied bacon in the link above. 😍

Remove the ribeye steaks from the refrigerator. I got these steaks from Aldi's and they were amazing! We like them to be at room temp before we grill them.  Preheat the Hamilton Beach Indoor Grill at its highest temp. This grill is why we can do this during a weeknight. Quick, easy to clean and no matter the weather, we can grill indoors! Salt and pepper each side of the steak. Put your ribeyes on the hot grill.  Leave the steaks on the grill until you get a great sear.  Flip the steaks and start watching the temperature on the app.  We like our steaks at 130 degrees.  Pull them off the grill and let them rest for five minutes.

Airfry your favorite french fries and you are ready to plate!  Top the steak with the Gateway to the North Steak Butter. This is why you didn't need anything but salt and pepper on the steak!  Add your fries and pass over a Gateway Bloody Mary.  Cheers!
