1.5lbs.Ribeye SteakBetter 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.
