Grilled Ribeye

Today, we’re demystifying the art of the grilled ribeye steak, guiding you on your journey to achieving restaurant-worthy results right in your own backyard.

Grilled Ribeye Recipe

Let’s be honest, there’s something primal, almost magical, about the sizzle of a perfectly seasoned steak hitting a hot grill. The aroma that fills the air, the anticipation building as it cooks, and then, the first juicy bite – it’s a culinary symphony that’s hard to resist. But fear not, grill masters and aspiring carnivores alike!

Now, before we dive into the sizzling details, let’s address the elephant in the room: perfect doesn’t mean complicated. This recipe is all about showcasing the natural beauty of a high-quality ribeye, enhanced by simple yet impactful techniques. And, to add a touch of personal flair, we’ll top it off with a homemade compound butter featuring the vibrant freshness of my homegrown chives (but store-bought works just fine too!). So, grab your apron, fire up the grill, and let’s get cooking!

The Anatomy of Perfection: Choosing Your Ribeye Steak

The foundation of this recipe lies in the quality of your steak. Opt for a thick-cut (around 1-1.5 inches) bone-in ribeye for optimal flavor and juiciness. Look for marbling throughout, as this is where the flavor magic happens. Ask your butcher for their recommendation, and don’t be afraid to splurge a little – a good steak is an investment in pure deliciousness!

The Art of Simplicity: Preparing Your Steak for Greatness

Now, the beauty of this recipe lies in its minimalist approach. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 ribeye steak (1-1.5 inches thick, bone-in or boneless)
  • Olive oil: For a light coating to prevent sticking.
  • Salt and freshly cracked pepper: The essential flavor duo.
  • 2 tablespoons butter: Softened, for the ultimate compound butter.
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives: Freshly snipped from your garden (or store-bought!).
