Say hello to the most beautiful steak you have ever seen. Perfectly topped with warm bubbling butter with crushed garlic cloves and fresh thyme sprigs.
In this post we want to show you how to marinate your ribeye to leave them impeccable. If you’re looking for a flavor change in your meats, these grilling recipes are gourmet and melt in your mouth all summer long. These are the details to marinate ribeye at home:
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4 people
Ingredients to marinate your ribeye:
- 2 bone-in prime ribeyes (about 1 pound each)*
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 4 tablespoons regular strength soy sauce
- 8 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons of pure honey
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salsa (your preference)
- 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
- Optional: chopped chives or chives for garnish
Instructions for cooking your ribeye
- Prepare the meat: First you must dry the ribeye with a towel and pierce the meat with a fork. Then put them aside.
- Marinate: Then in a cup start mixing all the ingredients until well blended. When finished, begin rubbing the marinade onto the perforated steaks and place them in a skillet (a baking sheet works well). Cover it completely with the marinade. Cover and chill 1-2 days in the refrigerator.
- Cooking: Then oil your grill and preheat over medium high heat. Grill steaks 3 to 5 minutes per side or to your preferred doneness (medium-rare suggested). You can discard the marinade or boil it in a saucepan while the steaks are cooking, as it can be used as a sauce to drizzle over grilled steaks.
- Rest and Serve: To finish, let the ribeyes rest for up to 5 minutes before serving with your choice of chopped herbs for garnish.
In conclusion, with 2 good size ribeyes, you can feed 2 to 4 people. 2 people if they are meat lovers, and if not you can feed 4 people by cutting the cooked steaks into thin slices and serving them on a plate (it is better if you serve the ribeye pre-sliced, for example since you won’t need to deal with the bones.)
Actual cook time depends on thickness of steaks and grill temperature. If you want to learn another easy recipe, we recommend that you read our article on how to make smoked buffalo chicken wings.
