How To Make Ribeye Steak
Ribeye steaks are some the most delicious cuts of meat out there. Learning how to cook them correctly will ensure that your next dinner or barbecue will be a big success. There are two main ways that you can cook a ribeye steak and each method has its own benefits.
Method Number One: Searing Ribeye Steak In The Pan
Cooking a ribeye steak in a pan is probably the easiest way of cooking the steak. The first step is to use a quality nonstick metal pan. People who use cheaper pans often find that their steaks will stick to the pan and not cook correctly. Start by preheating your pan, placing it over very high heat until it becomes extremely hot. While you’re waiting for the pan to heat, you can let your steak warm to room temperature rather than using the meat directly taken out of the fridge.
Next you’ll want to brush your ribeye steak with oil. Typically olive oil is the best choice for ribeye steaks. Make sure that both sides of your steak get brushed with oil and then add salt and pepper. Remember that it’s always a good idea to season your food before you cook it so that the flavor of the seasoning gets locked into the food.
Now it’s time to grill your steak. Depending on what kind of pan you are using, you may want to add some oil to it to prevent the stake from sticking. Let the steak cook for a few minutes on each side, depending on whether you want your state rare, medium, or well done. Make sure that you only flip your steak once, because if you flip it more than one sick and become very tough.
Method Number Two: Cooking Your Steak Over The Grill
Cooking your ribeye steak over the grill is a great way to cook because it adds the unique grilled flavor to the meat. Similarly to pan cooking, heat your grill to a very high heat. Make sure that the grill is lubricated with a little bit of oil so that the steak doesn’t stick. As with the pan cooked steak, coat both sides generously with olive oil and add salt and pepper.
Now that your steaks are prepared, it is time to start cooking. Place each steak on the grill with a lid open. Depending on how well done you want the steaks cooked, cook on each side for about 4 to 6 minutes. You can also play a quick game of Subway Surfers while waiting your steak to cook! Again, make sure you don’t flip the steaks too many times to prevent them from being tough. Remember, it’s always possible to cook a steak more after you take it off the grill, but it is never possible to take back the cooking once well done. If you’re unsure of when to take the steak off, take away from the heat sooner than later.
No matter how you choose to cook your ribeye steak, you will still be able to enjoy the delicious flavor of an excellent choice of meat. Remember that practice makes perfect and you will be well on your way to creating the perfect steak.
