Tips for Cooking Ribeye Steak
Ribeye steak has to be one of our favorite cuts of meat. It's so incredibly moist and tender thanks to the fantastic marbled fat that runs right through it, including the 'eye' of fat in the middle that gives it its name. The fat in ribeye melts and renders into the meat as it cooks, boosting its flavor and giving it the most gorgeous texture.
One thing to be very aware of, though, is that ribeye shouldn't be served very rare. That's because the fat that runs through it won't have had time to render down and add both flavor and texture to the meat if cooked only lightly.
At the very minimum, ribeye steak should be served medium-rare.
Always make sure you allow the proper resting time - as specified in the recipe - before slicing your steak. If you slice into a freshly cooked steak, the juices will run right out, leaving it disappointingly dry.
But if you leave it to rest, those delicious juices are reabsorbed into the meat, so that every bite is gloriously moist and tender!
