RE: How to cook a Ribeye
This isn't a topic that I'd typically post on as I'm not much for red meat or steaks beyond beef ribs. I will do a ribeye for my Dad as a special treat every once in a while. I didn't see any mention of using the oven broiler, so I thought that I'd post how I do his. I only have an electric flat top and can't generate the heat for a cast iron skillet to properly sear the meat, so the broiler is my best bet short of wasting a grill full of coals for one person.
I marinate the boneless rib eye that's about an inch thick in a home made marinade similar in taste to Dale's Seasoning but contains some oil in a Vac-U-Vin vacuum marinader for about 20 minutes.
Set the grate closest to the burner and set the broiler to high.
Steak is patted down for excess marinade and placed on a small rack salvaged from a previous toaster oven wiped with veg. oil and set in a 1/4 rack sheet pan lined with foil. Dust with fresh, ground black pepper.
Place under broiler for about 7 minutes, turn and dust the other side with pepper and return for another 7 minutes handling only with tongs.
This seems to work for my Dad and he's happy with the medium-rare results. I've also added liquid smoke to the marinade at times too. It must taste ok as he never asks for any steak sauce.
