Grilled Beef Ribeye

You are here:  > > Beef Ribeye

Rib eye, is my hands down favorite cut of meat to eat. So tender, so juicy and all that marbling makes it so luscious. The down side is that they are very expensive though even that has a silver lining. If they were more affordable I would eat them once a week and probably would have died from a heart attack by now. Ribeye steak a couple times a year, no problem. Ribeye steak everyday, let me know what kind of flowers you like.

A Delicious Grilled Beef Ribeye

  • Yield: 2 servings
    Prep Time: 5 minutes
    Cook Time: Varies, but less than 15 minutes


  • Charcoal or gas grill
    BBQ tongs


  • 2 rib-eye steaks, prime or choice
    Salt and ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat a grill to high heat. Fold an old kitchen towel in half, lengthwise and roll it tightly into a "log". Tie it tightly with kitchen twine.
  2. Once the grill is at temperature hold the towel with the tongs and wipe the grate to remove any excess soot and debris.
  3. Next Place some canola oil in a flat pan and dip the towel into the oil. Shake off any excess and wipe the grates again. You may get a little flare up, but it will die down quickly. Now wipe the grates once more with the towel. 
  4. Place rib-eye steaks on a large platter and season with salt and pepper on all sides.
  5. Transfer the  seasoned steaks to the hot grill, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side for rare, longer if desired.
  6. Remove steaks and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.


  1. If you get a lot of flare-ups while grilling the rib-eyes you can control them by squirting them using a squirt bottle filled with water or just moving them to another spot on the grill.
  2. Cooking times for meat: I wish I could tell you that it takes a specific number of minutes to hit rare or medium-rare, or well done, but I can't. Meat cooking times are a guideline at best and it takes trial and error to hit your desired temperature. However, it takes, roughly; 2 to 5 minutes on each side for rare, 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium, 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium-well, and 7 to 10 minutes per side for well done.
