Ribeye steaks, one of the most common and best types of steak, come from the beef rib primal cut; the corresponding roast is the prime rib. Rib-eye steaks, sometimes called beauty steaks, are tender, juicy, and very flavorful, with just the right amount of fat. Fast cooking methods using high heat produce the most delectable results.
The best way to cook a ribeye steak is quickly over high heat, either on the grill, under the broiler, or in a cast iron. Cooking it this way produces a flavorful brown crust on the outside of the steak while leaving the interior tender and juicy.
