Cooking a ribeye steak is a delicious and straightforward process. Here’s a simple recipe for preparing a ribeye steak:


  • Ribeye steaks (1 to 1.5 inches thick)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

  • Olive oil or vegetable oil
  • Optional: Garlic powder, rosemary, thyme, or your favorite steak seasoning


  1. Bring the Steak to Room Temperature: Take the ribeye steaks out of the refrigerator at least 30-60 minutes before cooking. Allowing them to come to room temperature ensures more even cooking.
  2. Season the Steak: Pat the steaks dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Season both sides generously with salt and black pepper. You can also add other seasonings like garlic powder, rosemary, thyme, or your favorite steak seasoning for extra flavor.

  1. Preheat the Pan or Grill: If you’re cooking indoors, preheat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. If you’re grilling outdoors, preheat your grill to high.
  2. Preheat the Oven (Optional): If you want to finish the steak in the oven for a perfect medium-rare or medium doneness, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  3. Add Oil to the Pan or Grill: Coat the pan or grill grates with a high-smoke-point oil like olive oil or vegetable oil.
  4. Sear the Steak: Place the seasoned ribeye steak in the hot pan or on the grill. Sear the steak for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a golden-brown crust forms. If using a grill, you can achieve beautiful grill marks by rotating the steak 90 degrees halfway through each side.
  5. Finish in the Oven (Optional): If you want to finish the steak in the oven, transfer the seared ribeye to the preheated oven and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes for medium-rare, or longer for your desired doneness.

  1. Rest the Steak: Once the steak reaches your preferred doneness, remove it from the heat and let it rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the steak moist.
  2. Slice and Serve: After resting, slice the ribeye steak against the grain into 1/2-inch slices. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Remember to adjust cooking times based on the thickness of your steak and your preferred level of doneness. Cooking times may vary, so use a meat thermometer to ensure your steak reaches the desired internal temperature.
