How to Cook Ribeye Steak the Easy Way
Here’s how to cook ribeye steak at home. Most guys, frankly, really did not like beef that much. But OH WAS WRONG! This ribeye steak recipe is absolutely unreal!
You’ll never believe how juicy and tender it can be. I used a steak rub made with allspice, ground pepper, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper to give it some oomph. Salting well in advance is also important. Oh, and lots of garlic! The steak should be marinated in this juice overnight.
When I cooked my first steak, I made the biggest mistake by preparing it on the grill. The steak was falling apart when it was done cooking. I immediately switched to cooking it on the coals in an aluminum pan using a steak rub like the one I mentioned above. It turned out perfect!
Another thing you want to do when cooking steak on the grill is to let it cook very slowly. Just take your fork and slowly turn the piece.
The key is to not go over medium heat. This causes a lot of juices to escape and the flavor to become dry. A good rule of thumb is to let your piece cook for about 2 minutes per side or to leave a few minutes on the side.
The best way to cook a steak on the grill is to use a cast iron pan. Nothing works better than a seasoned cast iron pan. The reason is that it absorbs the moisture from the grill and cooks your steak evenly. You can also use a non-stick pan, but I find the seasoned cast iron pans work best. You want to make sure that the pan is very hot before you put your steaks on it, as you don’t want them to be steamed. Cooked steak in a hot skillet will fall off the grill and give you a terrible cut.
Steaks can be cooked in several ways, but many people like to serve them in gravy. My favorite way is to use my grandmother’s famous butter recipe.
To make this recipe, simply take a tablespoon of butter and add a cup of flour to it. Then you take the beef and brown it in the butter. Take out your beef and add your onions, garlic, green pepper, and salt and pepper to it. Place in your slow cooker and set for your desired amount of time – well ahead of the time you plan on serving your steak!
For best results when cooking your steak, I recommend you sear the meat first, then reduce the heat and let the meat finish cooking in its own juices. Some people like to put their stake in the grill first and then go ahead and serve it with the garlic butter, and then others like to do both.
The only way to really determine which method you prefer is by trying them both. And seeing which one brings out the most flavor from your meat.
When finished, just mix some sugar, paprika, and kosher salt and let it coat your piece of meat before removing it from the grill or oven. Let your dish rest for about an hour or so before finishing your meal. Your ribeye steak will be absolutely delicious, as long as it is properly prepared and is prepared with a little effort.
For the best results, it is best to prepare your ribeye steak completely and then take it right out of the grill or oven once it’s done. It will be grated quite a bit, so make sure that you have plenty of room at least on the bottom of your plate. Use your spatula or fork to carefully remove the grate and then cut the steak crosswise into four equal pieces. Using a potato masher, mash up the chunks and season with salt and pepper to taste.
As the meat starts to cook, turn it over using your fork to release the juices that have accumulated inside.
You can now start to cook your potatoes alongside the ribeye as it cooks. Turning to cook the other side until the potatoes are almost cooked through. Once both sides are fully cooked, grab a piece of raw cut tomato and add it to the already moist meat to make sure that it doesn’t stick. Cover your lid again and let your Ribeye steak finish cooking for about three minutes.
Once the beef is finished cooking, use your spatula to turn it over and continue cooking it in your high heat grill rack. To finish cooking the ribeye, uncover it from the grill rack and slice it on both sides to create nice thin slices. Once these are ready, serve on top of steamed white rice. I love to serve it with some fresh chopped summer squash for a nice summertime meal!
