Grilled rib-eye steaks

Grilled rib-eye steaks

The char of a hot grill brings out the bold beef flavors of these steaks, which are simply seasoned with salt and pepper.

Servings: 4


  • Vegetable oil, for grates

  • 4 bone-in rib-eye steaks (1 pound each, 1 1/2 inches thick), preferably pasture-raised

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat grill to high; clean and lightly oil hot grates. Let steaks stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Generously season both sides of steaks with salt and pepper. Grill steaks, rotating once to create hatch marks, until well-browned on the outside and cooked to desired doneness, 6 to 7 minutes per side on a charcoal grill (or 8 to 9 minutes per side on a gas grill) for medium-rare (about 125 degrees). Transfer to a platter; cover with foil. Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice steaks against the grain.
