Perfect Ribeye Steak Recipe

Learn how to cook a mouthwatering ribeye steak with this simple and delicious recipe.


  • 2 ribeye steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Optional: fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary for garnish


  1. Take the ribeye steaks out of the refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. This will ensure even cooking.
  2. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. You want it to be nice and hot before you start cooking.
  3. While the grill is heating up, rub the steaks on both sides with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Once the grill is hot, place the steaks on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time according to your desired doneness.
  5. While the steaks are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Once the steaks are done, transfer them to a cutting board and let them rest for about 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a juicy steak.
  7. Slice the steaks against the grain and drizzle with the garlic butter. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
  8. Serve your delicious ribeye steaks with your favorite sides and enjoy!
