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

  • 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

Roses with baby's breath

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a vibrant, fresh bunch of roses! Ours are long-lasting and available in a variety of colors, lengths and arrangements.

If you want to give your sweetheart a classic gift of one dozen roses, we offer an assortment of options, from bold red to stunning white. We also have long-stemmed roses that make an impression, as well as dozen rose bouquets with baby’s breath and greenery. If you’d like a vase with your flowers, we offer that, too!

Chocolove also has a Valentine Ruby Pink Chocolate Bar that’s creamy, sweet and deliciously unique.
