How to Cook Your Sweetheart Ribeye

Whether you choose to cook your steaks indoors in a skillet or outdoors on the grill, use our tips to ensure a great entrée every time.

Season steaks liberally with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, and allow to come to room temperature before cooking, about 15 minutes.

Indoor Searing: Heat a large, cast-iron skillet over medium high heat for at least 2 minutes. Place steaks in skillet and cook until the underside is nicely browned, 3-4 minutes. Flip steak and continue cooking to your desired doneness, about 3-4 minutes more for medium-rare or until internal temperate reaches 145°F. Remove the steaks and let rest for 3-5 minutes. Pour any pan juices over the steaks and serve.

Outdoor Grilling: Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (around 550°F). Place steaks on the grill and close the lid. Cook until the underside is nicely browned, 3-4 minutes. Flip steaks, cover and continue cooking to your desired doneness, 3-4 minutes more for medium-rare or until internal temperate reaches 145°F. Remove the steaks from the grill and let stand for 3-5 minutes before serving.

Whether you choose to cook your steak indoors in a skillet or outdoors on the grill, here are a few tips to ensure a great entrée every time.

Our Favorite Ways to Serve It

  • Chef Tip: We love to sear this special cut in a hot cast iron skillet on both sides until medium rare, then top with crunchy sweet pomegranate arils, fresh rosemary and minced shallots.
  • Brush with Shoyu: Shoyu is a Japanese aged soy sauce that’s much sweeter and more complex than traditional soy sauces. Earthy, elegant and delicate, shoyu is ideal for finishing steak. Simply brush with your shoyu of choice as soon as it comes off the grill (or pan).
  • Top with Compound Butter: As soon as your steak comes off the grill (or pan), top it with a medallion of Roasted Garlic Butter. This ensures a tender, juicy steak with subtle sweet garlic flavor.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

The Fresh Market Roses - Mixed

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a vibrant, fresh bunch of roses! PassionRoses are the most stunning, longestlasting roses you can find.
