That’s why we are going to walk you through a step-by-step process of preparing the BEST and most delicious ribeye steak dinner for that special someone. Follow along below!
The first step to making the most unforgettable steak dinner is prepping the star of the show, also known as your Ribeye steak. If you’re looking for something a bit more elegant, we suggest going with the Wagyu Ribeye for a beautifully marbled piece of meat. You’re going to want to wait until the meat is completely thawed, then pat it dry, and season with salt, pepper, and ‘The Rub’ for some added flavor. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before placing it in your medium-high heat skillet. Cook in the skillet and flip every 3-4 minutes until edges are brown on both sides. This usually takes around 10-15 minutes. Next, you should reduce the heat to medium-low, this is where it gets exciting! Add butter, garlic, and rosemary in the skillet with your steak and start scooping it on the ribeye until the garlic butter sauce starts foaming. This process should take around 1 minute or until it reaches an internal temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit. A chef tip is to let it rest for 15 minutes before cutting into it so that the juices can fully settle and marinate.
Now let’s talk about side dishes! Any steak’s partner in crime is always potatoes but let’s add our own little twist to it. You will need 2 pounds of Yukon gold potatoes (peeled), 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, ¾ cup of crème fraîche (secret ingredient), 1 teaspoon of salt, and ½ teaspoon of black pepper. From here, cut the potatoes into eighths and place them in a bowl of cold saltwater to marinate. Then, boil potatoes for around 15 minutes or until it’s soft enough to poke with a fork. Place them in a bowl and start smashing until completely smooth! Add the butter and mix until it’s melted, then add the crème fraîche. Make sure to season well with salt and pepper. Last but not least, you can’t forget about the vegetables! Our top pick for this steak dinner is roasted parmesan broccoli, but any green vegetable works just fine.
End the night with a couple of glasses of the best Cabernet Sauvignon for a deliciously dry red wine that pairs perfectly with any ribeye. But let’s not forget about the dessert!
