‘Tis the season — grilling season!

Summer is the most glorious time to fire it up and tend to some beautiful cuts of meat.

BUT, it can be not so pleasurable if you don’t know what you’re doing.

If you’re a newbie or just need a little refresher, here’s a quick Grilling 101 course for your summertime enjoyment…

1. Selecting the best cut for the job depends on what you’re going for. Meaty and hearty or buttery tender? Make your cut decision after perusing this lesson on steak cuts and you won’t go wrong.

2. Season it early. Don’t just throw a piece of meat on the grill naked. The art of seasoning is important. Read about its artistry and other steak grilling tips from a chef here.

3. Searing your steak is very important. But don’t just take it from me. Check out these steak grilling videos from the experts.

After you’ve read these lessons and watched the videos, you should ace the true test — grilling a steak that passes with flying colors!

Everything Ribeye!

By

Oh, the glorious ribeye! How I love you!

It’s my absolute favorite cut. It’s tender, but rich and hearty. Just the way I like it!

With or without the bone, it’s sliced from the prime rib. And so, so succulent.

The bone has been rumored to give the meat even more flavor, but for me, I prefer the simplicity of boneless. Beauty is, you get to decide for yourself!

Want to pair a ribeye with a nice wine? Try a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon for maximum impact. This wine pairing chart is fun to peruse when cooking a beautiful steak dinner.

Trying out a ribeye soon? Watch the ribeye video on this page. It’s a wonderful resource for chef tips and advice on cooking your ribeye perfectly. Check it out and heed this advice! :)

And when you’re ready to dive in, the ribeye recipes here are to die for! Try your hand at whipping up some Chipotle Buttered Ribeye Steaks or even Spicy Ribeyes Topped with Blue Cheese. You’ll be a pro in no time!

All this ribeye talk is making me hungry. I know what I’m having for dinner. How about you?
