  • 1.5 lbs. Ribeye Steak Better if you can get about ¾ or 1-inch thick.



  • With the meat, cut it, if needed, into two steaks.
    Cut some deep (halfway down), long slits about every inch spaced apart. Each starts and ends about ½-inch from the edge. Place the meat into a bowl or plastic bag.
  • Pour the marinade over the meat. Seal it well and place it in the refrigerator. Let it set for a 2-12 hours.

Optiona 1: Cooking on the Grill

  • Drain all the steaks' marinade from the bowl or bag.
    Prepare a hot grill. Place the meat on direct heat initially for about 1-3 minutes, avoiding excessive charring. Flip it over, remaining on direct heat for another 1-3 minutes.
    Check internal temp of the meat. If it needs further cooking, position the steaks to indirect heat and close the grill cover. When at your desired temp/doneness, remove and let them set for at least about 5-10 minutes before cutting into them. The meat will have a darker appearance than normal.

Option 2: Cooking on the Stovetop

  • Discard the marinade and place the steaks in a medium-high heat skillet to sear one side for about 1-3 minutes, managing it to avoid burning. If needed, add a little oil. Flip meat over and repeat for the other side for about 1-3 minutes. Then, reduce the heat to medium low.
    Check the internal temp of the meat. When at your desired temp, remove the steaks to set for about 5-10 minutes before cutting into them.
    The meat will have a darker appearance than normal, due to the marinade, and that is to be expected.

Marinated Ribeye Steak Storage

You can store the marinated ribeye steaks in the fridge but no longer than 2 days. For saving time in the distant future, you can also prepare to freeze them. Prepare the usual ribeye steaks (cut with slits) and add the marinade into individual sandwich bags. Then, place those baggies into a larger sealable food storage bag and toss in the freezer. This way you can do a bunch of them and remove them individually, as needed. You don’t even have to wait for them to marinade! Generally, you won’t want to leave them longer than about 3 months in the freezer.

Future Usage from the Freezer

After frozen, when ready to use these marinated ribeye steaks, you can pull the amount of individually bagged steaks from the freezer into the fridge the night before. Be sure you put them in a bowl because the marinade will thaw and might leak out. Or, you can use your defroster cycle on the microwave. If using the microwave defrost option, start with keying in just 75% of the meat weight. Also, as you don’t want the marinade leaking out, put them in a microwavable bowl and slightly open each sandwich bag.
