A big juicy grilled steak just screams summertime. It’s the perfect option for a summer gathering or a small family meal at home.

The rib eye steak oozes flavour straight off the grill, this cut is a rich and buttery indulgence that’s a little on the pricey side but definitely worth the extra dollar. 

Grilled rib eye steak is a mouthwatering combination of tender yet thick and juicy all at once! I like to opt for bone-in for appearance and that extra oomph of flavour too. 

Grilled Rib Eye Steak Ingredients

  • 2 rib-eye steaks
  • your favorite steak seasoning

How to Make the Perfect Rib Eye Steak

  • Start by seasoning the steaks on all sides – you can use whatever dry rub you prefer. 
  • The steaks need to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cooking, but you don’t want to go over an hour – so make sure to keep an eye on the time. 
  • Give your grill grates a clean and preheat your BBQ to medium-high heat. 
  • Cook your prepared rib eye steaks on the grill for 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Use your meat thermometer to get the right temperature for your desired doneness.
  • Once the steaks are done, take them out of the grill and let them rest for five minutes on a cutting board. 
  • Cut into slices and serve!

Ingredients

  • 2 rib eye steaks 1- 11/2 inches thick
  • 2-4 tbsp your favorite steak seasoning

Instructions

  1. Remove the rib eye steaks from the refrigerator. Season the steaks on all sides using the dry rub of your choice. For a rib eye, simpler is better, the meat is so good that you don't need sauce or a marinade.

  2. Let the steaks sit at room temp for at least 30 minutes before cooking. but no longer than an hour,

  3. Clean your grill grates and preheat your BBQ to a medium high heat.

  4. Place the prepared rib eye steaks on the grill . Cook over direct heat for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium rare, but use your meat thermometer to get the right temperature for your desired doneness, not the amount of cooking time.

  5. Steak doneness temperatures are as follows:

    120° F = Rare

    130° F = Medium rare

    140° F = Medium

    160° F = Well done

  6. Remove the steaks from the grill and let the steaks rest for five minutes on a cutting board.. The juices will redistribute and settle throughout the meat, so that when you slice the steaks the juices won't all come out.

  7. Slice on the cutting board and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Rib eye steaks are SUCH good quality that they don't need a marinade to soften up the meat fibers, and they really don't need to be fancy other than a spice rub of your choice.
  • Remember that meat temperatures can rise another 5 degrees while resting, so remove from the grill in time allowing for this extra temperature rise.
