Classic Cowboy Steak
Serves 4
The Cowboy Steak is a more flavourful cut of beef. It is around the 2 lb. mark, and has beautiful marbling makes it great for slow roasting and grilling. It is a bone-in cut that has been frenched, leaving the rib bone cleaned and exposed for a more elegant looking piece of meat. Do not let that fool you, though, because this big boy is a big bite of beef.

Serves: 4   


  • ¼ cup, 60 mL olive oil
  • 2 tbsp., 30 mL Napoleon® Classic Steak Spice

  • 1 tbsp., 30 mL minced garlic

  • 2 bone-in cowboy/rib steaks (2-3” thick),
    (24 oz 680 g)
  • 4 large Portobello mushrooms, stems removed,
    soaked in warm water for 1 hour
  • 2 medium white onions, peeled and
    trimmed with root end attached
  • 1 tbsp., 15 mL olive oil
  • to taste, Napoleon® Classic Steak Spice
  • ½ cup, 125 mL Napoleon® Steak Sauce
  • 1 cup, 250 mL crumbled blue cheese


Step 1
In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, Napoleon® Classic Steak Spice, Shiraz, garlic and thyme. Rub the steaks with the seasoning paste, pressing the seasoning into the meat to adhere. Cover and set aside until needed.
Step 2
Drain Portobello mushrooms from water and pat dry with paper toweling. Slice onions into 4 wedges through the root end. Season mushrooms and onion wedges with olive oil, and Napoleon® Classic Steak Spice to taste.
Step 3
Preheat grill to high heat.
Step 4
Grill mushrooms and onions for 10-18 minutes, turning occasionally until lightly charred and tender. Set aside on the warming rack of the grill to keep warm.
Step 5
Place steaks onto preheated grill and sear for 3-4 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and place steaks on the warming rack of the grill. Close lid and allow steaks to roast for an additional 10-15 minutes for medium-rare doneness, basting every few minutes with Napoleon® Steak Sauce.
Step 6
Remove steaks from grill and allow to rest for 1-2 minutes.
Step 7
Remove mushrooms and onions from grill and slice into 1-2 inch pieces.
Step 8
Slice steaks into 1” thick slices across the grain and arrange on a platter. Top with the grilled onions and mushrooms and crumbled blue cheese. Serve immediately. Try serving these succulent steaks with some Shiraz.

Happy Grilling!
