Rib eye steak is a cut of beef that includes a rib and a section of the loin. It is well-marbled, which means it has a higher fat content than other cuts of steak, and is consequently more flavorful. The best way to cook rib eye steak is to grill it, but it can also be cooked in a pan on the stove. When grilling or pan-frying rib eye steak, it is important to cut it correctly so that it will cook evenly.

The Best Way to Cut Rib Eye Steak

When it comes to cutting steak, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. The type of steak, the thickness, and the way you like your steak cooked. With all of that being said, the best way to cut rib eye steak is against the grain.

Step 1: Prepare the steak


-1 (2-pound) rib eye steak, at least 1-inch thick
-Kosher salt
-Freshly ground black pepper
-1 tablespoon vegetable oil


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Sprinkle both sides of the steak with salt and pepper. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Add the steak to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove the skillet from the heat.
3. Place the skillet in the oven and roast for about 10 minutes for rare or 13 minutes for medium rare. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into it

Step 2: Cut the steak

Now that you have your steak, it’s time to cut it. The best way to cut rib eye steak is to first find the bone. The bone will be located in the middle of the steak, and you will want to find it so that you can make a clean cut through the meat. Once you have found the bone, use your knife to make a cut along the length of the bone, being careful not to cut into the bone itself.

Next, start cutting the steak into thin slices, working your way from the outside of the steak towards the middle. You can make your slices as thin or as thick as you like, butKeep in mind that thicker slices will take longer to cook. If you are looking for something quick and easy, then aim for thinner slices.

Once you have sliced all of the meat off of the bone, you can go ahead and trim any excess fat off of the steak. Fat can add a lot of flavor to a steak, but it can also make it tough and chewy if there is too much of it. Trim off any large pieces of fat that you see, and then proceed to cutting your steak into smaller pieces, if desired.

Step 3: Serve the steak

Now that your steak is cooked and resting, it’s time to serve. Slice the steak against the grain into thin strips. This will result in more tender slices of meat. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
