  • 4 12- ounce ribeye steaks
  • 12 warm flour tortillas
  • 2 cups red cabbage loosely chopped

  • In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, black pepper, sea salt, cinnamon and allspice. Rub the mixture on your steak, on both sides. Preheat your grill to medium, and grill the steaks 5 minutes on each sides (for medium rare). Remove from the grill and set aside to rest for 10-15 minutes.
