How Long to Cook Ribeye on the Grill:

Cooking ribeye on the grill doesn’t take long. It will depend on how well you want the center cooked. Make sure the grill is on high heat to give the steaks a nice sear. You will want to sear each side of the steak for about 2 minutes.

After searing the steaks, reduce the heat and continue cooking until the temperature you prefer your steak to be. Make sure to use a meat thermometer to cook to your preferred doneness.

Cooking time may vary depending on the size of your steak and your grill. We recommend closing the lid of your grill for best results.

How to Cook Ribeye Indoors:

If you prefer, you can cook your ribeye indoors on a indoor grill or on your stove top. We recommend if cooking on the stove top to cook in a cast iron skillet for the best results.

Heat the skillet with butter and place the seasoning steak in the hot skillet. Sear each side of the steak and then reduce heat. Continue cooking steak until your desired doneness.

Tips for the Best Grilled Ribeye Steak:

  • Crispy Texture – If you prefer a crispy texture, we recommend allow the steak to cook over direct heat. This allows the steak to sear and then continue cooking over low heat.
  • Meat Thermometer – Use meat thermometer to make sure the steak is cooked to your desired temperature. We recommend using a meat thermometer instead of slicing into steaks.
  • Room Temperature – All the steaks to be at room temperature before placing on the grill.
  • Rest steaks – We recommend after grilling the steaks to allow the steaks to rest before slicing. This locks in the moisture to make a juicy steaks, tender and delicious. As your steak rest, it continues to cook so keep that in mind when grilling your steaks.
  • Prepare Grates – You may need to oil the grill grates with olive oil to prevent the steaks from sticking.
  • Season Steaks – Make sure to season steaks thoroughly. The salt really brings out the flavors in the steak.
  • Trim Fat – If you prefer you can trim off any fat. A little fat helps to provide flavor but it could prevent the steak from catching fire. We like a little fat marbling throughout the steak.
  • Garlic Butter – We recommend always topping your steak with a little garlic butter. It really does make a difference in the taste and adds moisture to your steak.

Steak Temperature & Doneness Guide:

The best way to test for doneness is by inserting an instant read thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. Do this through the side, not the top of the steak.

These results will be the same for bone-in Ribeye.

Steak Doneness: 

  • Rare – 120F, cool to warm red center
  • Medium Rare – 130F, Warm red center
  • Cook Medium – 140F, Hot pink center
  • Medium Well – 150F, Mostly brown center
  • Well Done – 160F, full brown in color

What to Serve with Grilled Ribeye Steak:

The options are endless to serve with Ribeye Steaks. When we grill steaks, I like to grill my sides as it is less to clean up and everything is done about the same time. These are some of my favorites.

  • Grilled Zucchini in Foil – Zucchini grilled in foil is a simple and easy side dish that is great paired with many different meats. We love cooking our veggies in foil as it cooks the vegetables tender and tons of smoky flavor.
  • Grilled Mushrooms – I love this mushrooms recipe. The mushrooms are cooked directly on the grill with the skewers. These are the perfect mushrooms to serve over the top.
  • Grilled Sweet Potatoes – Sweet Potatoes are one of our favorite side dishes. This healthy vegetable cooks perfectly on the grill without a lot of work.
