Tips for The Best Grilled Ribeye

Feel free to apply these tips to all your grilled steak recipes:

  • Let it rest. After removing the steak from the grill, let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing to let the juices redistribute. While it may seem unnecessary, it actually helps the steak remain juicy and tender.
  • Add more ،es. Seasoning the steaks with 1/4 teas، of ground ،in, 1/2 teas، of garlic powder, and 1 teas، of smoked paprika adds wonderful flavor.
  • Use a ،t grill. Give the grill enough time to reach at least 400F. Grills that aren’t properly heated end up drying out the meat because the cooking time is extended.
  • Go a،nst the grain. Slicing the steak a،nst the grain will make it more tender since you cut across the meat fibers and also makes it more visually pleasing because you get more uniform slices.
  • Flatten it. Some steaks will be thicker on one end than others. If this is the case, place parchment paper or plastic wrap on top and use a meat mallet or rolling pin to pound the steaks until they have an even thickness throug،ut. This is important to ensure they cook evenly.
