Spiced Rum Grilled Ribeyes & Smashed Garden Taters {Caribbean-Inspired Cooking - Day 3}

Welcome to Day 3 of our week of Caribbean-inspired cooking! We were lucky enough to partner with Caribbean Trading Company, and were able to try several of their popular seasonings and sauces. Today, it's a juicy ribeye steak, seasoned with Spiced Rum Grill Seasoning. Plus some buttered, smashed taters and a side salad from the garden. 

This meal proves exactly why it's a great idea to have some pre-made seasonings on hand when you're in a pinch to whip up a weeknight meal. Whether those seasoning blends are store-bought or homemade, they can be a lifesaver when you want to add flavor to your dinner STAT.

The night before, I simply grabbed a package of ribeye steaks out of our deep freeze and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. The next day at dinnertime, I asked John to start the grill while I rubbed down these steaks with Spiced Rum Grill Seasoning.

Give your meat a generous rub down, folks. Don't be shy.

I halved some of my small taters from the garden and set them to boil down, and tossed together a salad using greens and veggies from the garden. I crunched up a few ramen noodles and added a mandarin orange to give it an Asian twist.

John cooked the steaks to medium-well (I get a little queasy when I see blood on my plate), and within 40 minutes (from start to finish!) we had a quintessential Midwesterner dinner on the table. The Spicy Rum Grill Seasoning was a great accompaniment to these juicy ribeyes - the flavor was slightly sweet (making it great for chicken, pork, or fish!) but with a little peppery spice.

  1. I have never had Caribbean food before. Curious to work with the different kind of spices! Would the rum spice rub work good on chicken?

  2. Thank you for the opportunity for a chance to try Caribbean Trading Company and their product. It is always hard to find a company with seasonings that are all natural and no MSG.
