Ribeye Steak

Ribeye steak is a flavorful and tender cut of beef that is popular among steak lovers for its marbling and rich taste. Here’s a simple recipe to cook a delicious ribeye steak:


  • – 2 ribeye steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • – Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • – Olive oil or butter, for cooking
  • – Optional: Garlic cloves, fresh herbs (such as rosemary or thyme)


1. Remove the ribeye steaks from the refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking. This helps ensure even cooking.

2. Preheat your grill or a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. You want to get the cooking surface hot before adding the steaks.

3. While the grill or skillet is heating up, pat the ribeye steaks dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Season both sides generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

4. If desired, you can rub minced garlic or fresh herbs onto the steaks for extra flavor.

5. Once the grill or skillet is hot, brush the cooking surface with a little olive oil or melt some butter. Carefully place the seasoned ribeye steaks onto the cooking surface.

6. Cook the steaks for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness, or adjust the cooking time according to your preference (see cooking times below).

7. Avoid flipping the steaks more than once to ensure a good sear on the outside. Use tongs to handle the steaks and avoid piercing them with a fork, as this can cause the juices to escape.

8. Once the steaks reach your desired level of doneness, remove them from the grill or skillet and transfer them to a plate. Let the steaks rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute.

9. Serve the ribeye steaks hot, sliced against the grain, and enjoy their juicy and flavorful goodness!

Cooking times for ribeye steak (for medium-rare):
– 1-inch thick steak: 4-5 minutes per side
– 1.5-inch thick steak: 5-6 minutes per side
– 2-inch thick steak: 6-7 minutes per side

Adjust the cooking times based on the thickness of your steak and your desired level of doneness. Remember, it’s always best to use a meat thermometer to ensure your steak is cooked to your liking. Enjoy your delicious ribeye steak!
