4 sprigs of fresh rosemary (broken in half)

1 tablespoon of dried oregano

2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper flake

1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

2 teaspoons of Kosher salt

In a bowl, add the olive oil, garlic, fresh rosemary sprigs, dried oregano, crushed red pepper flake, & ground black pepper then whisk thoroughly. Once marinate is done, rub the herbs & spices mixture into all surfaces of the steaks. Close the lid and refrigerate about 12 hours or up to 2 days. Preheat the grill for about medium heat and then prep the steaks. They should be out of the fridge for about 30 minutes before grilling. Once they’ve cooled down to room temperature, brush the Kelapo Ghee on each side and generously sprinkle with salt. Once finished, place steaks on the grill and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Let rest for about 5 minutes then serve with your favorite side dish!
