This sea salt crusted rib steak is so delicious !  Don’t freak out about the amount of sea salt called for it is only used for the crusting process and once cooked, you dispose of all that. With grilling season upon us, for those of you who don’t have a grill, this recipe is all you need to make your Fourth of July dinner memorable!  We love rib steak, but any bone in steak will work!
