Achieve the perfect grilled ribeye steak with these steps:
Take the ribeye out of the fridge and allow it to reach room temperature for about 30 minutes. Pat it dry with paper towels.
2-Charcoal Grill Setup:
Prepare your charcoal grill for direct heat cooking. Light the charcoal and let it burn until covered with white ash. Arrange the coals for a two-zone fire, creating a hot direct heat zone and a cooler indirect heat zone.
Rub the ribeye with olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper. Optional: add minced garlic, rosemary, or thyme for extra flavor.
Place the ribeye directly over the hot coals. For medium-rare, grill each side for about 4-5 minutes. Adjust the time for your desired doneness.
If you prefer a nice sear, move the steak directly over the hot coals for the last 1-2 minutes on each side.
Remove the ribeye from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a juicier steak.
Slice against the grain and serve your grilled ribeye with your favorite sides.
Enjoy the unbeatable flavor and tenderness of a perfectly grilled ribeye, showcasing the power of a charcoal grill’s direct, intense heat.
