The steaks received a simple rub consisting of kosher salt, black pepper & oregano.
The finished rub.
The 1/4” thick boneless rib eyes were brushed with a little olive oil & get rubbed with the spice rub, The rubbed steaks sat out for 30 minutes before being grilled.
The steaks are direct grilled on the first Egg which has been stabilized at 550 degrees.
The steaks were grilled for just over 2 minutes on the first side, and were rotated 90 degrees once in this time. The were flipped & finished for 30 seconds.
The second Egg with the two flat top griddle grates is at 450 degrees. Sliced Italian bread is grilled until toasted on the first side, flipped & toasted until the cheese is melted on the second.
Back in the Kitchen the bottom slices are brushed with a spread made from mayo & minced garlic.
A slice of lettuce goes on next…
…Followed by two slices of smoked ham…
…Then a rib eye steak & lastly the top slice of bread with melted swiss cheese.
These steak sandwiches had a rather quick prep, an even quicker cook & a quick final prep & made for one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Can’t ask for much more than that!!
The sandwiches were served with a Southwest Grilled Red Potato Salad which was equally good. A great start for this new to me Weber cookbook.

I really enjoy Jamie Purviance's cookbooks for Weber. This years addition Weber's New Real Grilling has some great grilling recipes that are relatively simple to make and offer great flavors. My first attempt from this book: Rib Eye Steak Sandwich was an excellent meal. Several of my Saturday dinner guests were strongly hinting they would love to have these sandwiches again next weekend. This meal marked a time when I was glad I had two Eggs available, since I made a batch and one half and needed the second Egg for grilling the breads and melting the cheese. I will let the pictures tell the story. Let me close by saying if you have this book, put this recipe on your short list.
