In honor of the release of “Mr. Dickey’s Barbecue Cookbook” we are giving you a sneak peak of the savory recipes you’ll soon uncover.
In the summer of 2004 Roland Dickey, Sr. “Mr. Dickey” and his son Roland Dickey, Jr. spiced up the set of “Live with Regis and Kelly.” The barbecue duo prepared Mr. Dickey’s famous “Oklahoma Hot Steaks” on the busy street of the Big Apple. Mr. Dickey was excited to showcase his mouthwatering hot steaks and dressed to the nines in his authentic Texas flare; a large cowboy hat, a Texas flag button down shirt and a bolo tie.
Now you don’t have to be a true Southerner, with all the gear, in order to make an Oklahoma Hot Steak, you just need to know Mr. Dickey’s personal recipe. So here it is:
Here’s what you’ll need (serves 6 to 7 people):
6 (12-ounce) rib eye steaks
1 jar sliced jalapenos, plus the juice
3 fresh jalapeno peppers, stemmed and sliced
2 ounces olive oil
PepperStep 1: Place the steaks in a 1-gallon plastic bag. Add the juice from the jar of jalapenos into the bag, along with half the sliced jalapeno peppers.
Step 2: Chop the raw jalapenos and add them, along with the olive oil, to the bag. Seal the gallon bag and turn several times to make sure the ingredients are mixed. Refrigerate overnight. On the day of your party, remove the steaks from the bag and allow them to sit out and come to room temperature, at least one hour.
Step 3: Cook the steaks for 3 to 4 minutes on each side over a hot grill for a medium steak. If you’re cooking the steaks inside, place them on a broiler pan and broil them in the oven on high for 3 minutes. Then turn them over and cook for 3 more minutes on the other side. The steaks at this point will be medium to medium well. Reduce the cooking time if you wish the steaks to be more rare.
Step 4: Season with pepper before serving.
Step 5: Enjoy your feast with friends and family.
Now everyone knows Oklahoma is already hot, but these steaks will give your taste buds a kick start. So if you’re looking for a cool day in Oklahoma then leave out the raw jalapenos.
