What Does This Rosemary Ribeye Steak Taste Like?
This steak recipe calls for fresh rosemary, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. This gives the ribeyes a balsamic taste that compliments the savory flavor or standard brown steak sauce. Salt adds brine to the dish and enhances the meaty flavor of the beef. It also tenderizes the ribeye steak even more, as salt is known to break down chewy lean muscles in meat. Pepper is also added for a bit of spice and nutty aroma. And lastly, the garlic powder mellows and sweetens the overall taste of this dinner for two recipe.
The ribeye recipe also incorporates dried rosemary into the seasoning of veggies and accompanying rosemary butter. A classic rosemary steak is a cult favorite among steak enthusiasts. Undoubtedly, this herb has a distinctly strong woody and piney aroma that harmonizes with the richness of the beef.
This recipe also includes a multitude of veggies to have on the side of each pan-seared ribeye steak. The variety of vegetables are doused in olive oil and seasonings before roasting in the oven for 20 minutes. This effectively brings out the flavors of each component. Alternatively, you can also try making a bowl of refreshing tomato and mozzarella salad for a chilled and crunchy veggie side.
How Long Should You Cook A Steak?
Typically, a slab of ribeye steak is cooked either on a stovetop or on a grill. Pan-seared steak recipes are usually cooked fast. The standard medium-rare doneness should only take 3 to 4 minutes on each side. However, it can be challenging to get the perfect balance between the char and the doneness of the steak. This may lead to an undercooked or overcooked steak, which isn’t ideal.
For this recipe, the thick cuts of ribeye are cooked on the stovetop for 2 to 3 minutes, just until the outsides of the steak are browned. After which, each steak has to be cooked in the oven for approximately 8 minutes. This ensures that the surface of the meat has that signature color of perfectly-cooked steak, while also having an ideal internal temperature for medium doneness.
Should You Trim Fat Off Ribeye Steak?
Ribeye steak is a fattier cut of steak. It has more marbling, and as a result, it’s much more succulent than other parts of the beef. This is one of the reasons why ribeye is a sought-after steak cut. It’s very juicy, and the fat content further heightens the meaty flavor of the dish.
However, while it’s true that fat content and marbling makes the ribeye incredibly tender, not everyone enjoys the experience of having to eat beef fat. Indeed, beef fat doesn’t render or melt completely unlike other meats.
If you’re cooking this rosemary steak for yourself, then you can decide whether or not to cut off the excess fat. However, if you plan on serving this dish to a special guest, it would be a good idea to trim it off. It’s advised that the fat on the ribeye should be trimmed only after the cooking process. It’s crucial that you keep the fat on the meat while cooking as it imparts an additional beefy flavor to the steak.
