Making steakhouse-worthy flavors doesn’t have to be difficult! The ultimate ribeye steak is juicy, flavorful, and seared to perfection all in the comfort of your kitchen.

Ribeye steak can seem intimidating to cook, but this version couldn't be simpler. Based on a recipe from food blogger Laila Fatmi, the method has essentially two parts: seasoning the meat well and letting it stand at room temperature for half an hour, then cooking the steak in a hot cast-iron skillet. 


2 teaspoons kosher coarse salt, * see notes

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon black pepper


Collect all ingredients in a quarter-liter Ziploc bag and seal it tightly. shake to blend all ingredients fully.

Generously cover each side of the steak with spices and let them rest for about 40 minutes. This allows the salt to penetrate across the surface (through osmosis) and help break down the muscle fibers, resulting in tenderer meat. During this time, the liquid that appeared initially has time to reabsorb, making the meat juice.

Once the grill is nice and hot, place the steak (s) and cook for 4-5 minutes, until brown and slightly charred. Turn it over and cook for the next extra time:

+5 minutes: Medium Rare

+7 minutes: medium

+10 minutes: Well done
