Ribeye Cooking Tips

Ribeye Cooking Tips

My absolute favorite steak is the ribeye. It’s meaty, it’s loaded with flavor and I crave it.

High heat and quick grilling is the best method for these yummy steaks. You can check out more cut-specific cooking tips here. The ribeye deserves respect and attention so I always give it what it deserves – you know, before I devour it.

You can do the same. Try this amazing Grilled Ribeyes w/Chipotle Lime Paste and Flavored Butter recipe. This is a great enhancement to the flavor of the cut and it’s absolutely delicious! Respect the meat!

Ribeyes are special. And when you’ve got the right process and the right recipe, grilling steak has never been so fun!

Grilled Ribeyes w/Chipotle Lime Paste and Flavored Butter

Ingredients:
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. minced chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
1/2 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup softened butter
4 (1″ thick) Ribeye Steaks
lime wedges

Directions: Heat a small skillet over medium heat. When hot, add oil, coriander and cumin; cook until spices sizzle. Add chipotles, limeade, salt and cilantro; simmer (uncovered) until reduced to a thick paste about 3 to 4 minutes. Cool. Remove 2 teaspoons paste and stir into softened butter. Place on plastic wrap and form into a 1/2″ thick square. Cover and place in freezer until needed. Rub remaining paste into both sides of Ribeyes Steaks; place in gallon-sized zipbags (2 steaks per bag) and seal, forcing air out of bags. Refrigerate for 4 hours, turning bags occasionally. Remove bags from refrigerator 1/2 hour before grilling and keep at room temperature. Place steaks on hot grill and sear both sides; reduce heat slightly ( or raise grill rack for charcoal) and cook until desired doneness, turning once. Remove butter square from freezer and cut into 4 equal parts. Top each steak with a flavored butter pat and garnish with lime wedges.

The Best Way to Cook a Steak Indoors

Filet Mignon and Crabcakes

I’ve been known to pull out my George Foreman Grill when I’m too cold to even think about going outside. I like the feeling of grilling my steaks even though I’m inside the house.

But grilling isn’t the only way to get the results we want from the comfort of our homes. True chefs prefer the pan searing method. And I can respect that. A good pan and the right love and care can bring out a beautiful flavor in a steak. You can read more about how to properly pan sear a steak here: http://www.kansascitysteaks.com/Recipe-Pan-Searing/Index.htm

And don’t forget you can always bake a steak in the oven. It’ll do the trick but you’ve got to watch them closely or they’ll come out dry.

Or, why not broil your steaks? I particularly like this method when I’m having filet mignons. So tasty!

Need some guidance on how to broil a steak? I KNOW I do. Check out this wonderful indoor cooking chart for all the steps including temperature and timing.

Don’t let your fear of the mountain of snow in your backyard deter you from cooking the steaks you crave this time of year. Just cook ‘em indoors!
