Is there anything more delectable than a perfectly cooked ribeye? We say yes. What is truly incomparable is a perfectly cooked American Wagyu ribeye, with the perfect ration of muscle-to-fat, a buttery soft mouth feel, and melt in your mouth deliciousness that is like no other type of meat. Here, we have some tips for cooking your ribeye in a way that will yield the juiciest, most flavorful steak imaginable.
- It starts with the seasoning. Wagyu beef does not need much, because it has so much flavor all on its own. Just a little bit of salt, three to four hours before you cook it, will help the steak retain its moisture when it is cooked.
- The next step is the sear. An hour before you are ready to cook it, take your ribeye out of the refrigerator. This allows it to come to room temperature before you toss it into a cast iron skillet or onto a grill for a perfect sear. If you are going to use a skillet, sear each side on high heat with a little bit of tallow or clarified butter.
- Give your steak a baste. Turning the pan to low or medium, add fresh thyme, garlic, and butter, then tilt the pan toward you. Cook for about one and a half minutes more, vigorously basting each side of the steak. You do not want to overcook Wagyu, but simply bring it to a delicious medium or medium rare.
- Let the ribeye rest. Once the juices have had time to reabsorb, you can finish the ribeye by drizzling the pan drippings over the top of the steak before you slice it. If you’d like, you can also season it a little further, with a dash of salt and pepper.
