Before I get into how to grill the perfect ribeye, I have to add a disclaimer: I don’t think there’s only “one right way” to cook most things on the grill and a large part of it is just a matter of personal preferences. Some will say only flip a steak once. Others will tell you to flip repeatedly. Some will say season an hour before, some will tell you to do it just before grilling, and still others will say wait until after you’ve grilled to season with salt. You can go crazy with all of the options.
For me, simple is better when it comes to a ribeye. It doesn’t need fancy sauces, techniques or voodoo – it just needs you to stay out of the way and let it be a ribeye steak.
