Almost any meal can be made to be special. Celebration meals bring people together to enjoy each other and the food they enjoy.

The Ribeye Steak Recipe: Butter-Garlic-Herb

Ingredient List

rib eye steak recipe
  • 1 large and thick ribeye steak
  • 2 onions, cut in half horizontally
  • 4 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/3 c. low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 crumbled beef bouillon
  • 1 Tbs. hot sauce (I like Sriracha)
  • 1 Tbs. minced garlic
  • 2 Tbs. parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes

Directions For This Rib-Eye Steak Recipe

  1. Remove the steak from the refrigerator 1-2 hours before cooking. This will allow the steak to come to room temperature. Pat the steak dry all over with paper towels.
  2. Preheat the oven to broil mode (500 degrees F.) Season the steak all over with salt, pepper, and the crumbled bouillion cube.
  3. Spray a baking pan lightly with a non-stick spray (such as PAM). Then, lay the onion slices and smashed garlic in the pan. Rest the steak on top. Broil the steak for 5-7 minutes on the top rack. Turn the steak over and broil for an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Next, lower the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Finish broiling for 10-12 minutes. Using an instant-read thermometer, measure the steak’s internal temperature. Medium Rare (125 degrees F), Medium (135 degrees F.)
  5. Remove the steak from the oven, leaving the steak on the pan, tent it with foil, and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  6. While the steak rests, mix the melted butter, soy sauce, hot sauce, 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp of salt, garlic, and red chili pepper flakes.
  7. Using a sharp knife, remove the bone from the steak. Slice the remaining piece of meat into serving sizes. Arrange on the individual plates or a single serving platter.
  8. Drizzle the herb sauce over the meat, serve immediately, and enjoy.

TIPS

I have found the secret to creating a great ribeye steak with this recipe is to generously season the meat before roasting it in the oven. The steak gets this nice golden crust we all love so much on our steaks.

Be sure to use an instant-read thermometer to get the “doneness” just right.

“Resting the meat before cutting and serving is critical to allow the juices to settle back into the meat, resulting in the tenderness a ribeye is known for. Tenting with foil is an established trick to keep the temperative evenly distributed. So, don’t skip this step!!

WHAT TO SERVE WITH THIS RIB-EYE STEAK RECIPE?

My husband prefers a type of potato, such as baked, mashed, or even roasted. I agree potatoes make a great side but if you are watching your carbs, like me, why not roast some fresh vegetables such as zucchini, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower? Even a quick saute of some mixed mushrooms in some butter with a little garlic added? This ribeye steak recipe can stand on its own and does not need fancy side dishes.

SUGGESTED WINE PAIRINGS

Definitely a Red Wine!! But which one? Experts will likely recommend a Cabernet Sauvignon. The high tannins present in the Cab help to cut through the juiciness of the steak and contrast well with the robust meatiness of the ribeye. While you can go with just about any Red, this particular recipe uses a generous amount of spices. That is why I agree that a Cabernet Sauvignon has the depth to pair with it.

My two favorite Cabernets from our Wine of the Month Club are the Donna Walker and the Antoniou. These extremely fine wines are without a doubt the finest to be found in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Don’t bother looking for these in your local store, they are only available from our exclusive Wine Club where the wines are selected SPECIFICALLY for us!! We are the fortunate ones…come and join The Wine of the Month Club…we welcome you.
