1 tablespoon Italian parsley, finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped

1 large garlic clove, finely chopped

2 H‑E‑B Prime Heart Shaped Ribeye

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 medium lemon, halved


1. Preheat grill to medium-high or 375ºF if using a charcoal grill. Using a knife or food processor, chop parsley, thyme, rosemary, and garlic until minced. Set aside.

2. Place 1 steak at a time in a zip top bag or under several layers of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Using the flat side of a mallet or heavy-bottomed pan, pound steak until double in size and approximately 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with remaining steak.

3. Rub both sides of each steak with olive oil, season with salt and pepper then rub in herb and garlic mixture.

4. Place steaks on hot part of grill and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side. Be careful not to tear steaks when flipping. Right before removing from grill, squeeze lemon over each steak. Let rest 5 minutes and serve. Click or tap here for the full recipe.
