I haven’t had a good steak in a while, so when I spotted this marinated ribeye recipe I had to try it out. There aren’t a ton of ingredients, I love ribeye steak, and the recipe sounded quick and easy. There’s nothing in that list I don’t like, especially on a weeknight. Bonus for several ingredients being standard items I tend to keep on hand. Less shopping for me!
This Tuscan-Style Grilled Rib Eye Steak marinated in fresh rosemary, garlic, balsamic vinegar and olive oil is so tender, it will melt in your mouth.
Ribeye steaks are a little splurgy for me at just under $14 for 2, but they aren’t ridiculously expensive. A couple of dollars for the fresh rosemary and garlic, and I had dinner ready to go. Well, ready to marinate. I had the balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil in the pantry, as well as the salt and pepper (not shown).
This meal went together very quickly. I had the marinade prepared and the steaks in a zip lock bag in just 7 minutes. The recipe says to marinate them for at least 3 hours, and I was able to marinate them for 4 1/2 hours. I try to marinate the meat overnight, but I’m not sure it would have improved the steaks this time since they were fairly thin.
I decided to pan-sear my steaks since it’s winter. Yes, it’s warm enough to grill outside here, but that’s not the case in a lot of places. Even with a few minutes to heat up a pan plus some time to stand, I had my steaks ready to go in 11 minutes. This is a really easy weeknight meal!
