Balsamic Glazed Ribeye – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Kick off your weekend with a juicy Balsamic Glazed Ribeye.  Nothing says, “Let’s celebrate,” like grilling one of America’s favorite cuts of meat. This recipe is easy to prepare on either your stovetop or outside, on a gas or charcoal grill, especially with the weather warming up.  The balsamic glaze adds a nice tangy note to the steak, that intensifies the flavor and leaves you wanting more.

I caramelize onions to top the ribeye, so the decadence continues and adds another layer of umami to the steak.  This ribeye recipe makes a great meal for the meat lovers in your life and I like to serve it with fresh asparagus or a wedge salad to enhance an old-school vibe.

Ingredients

1-2 rib eye steaks

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1 onion

1/2 teaspoon Herbs de Provence or dried thyme

6.  After the steak has marinated, remove it from the dish and blot it dry with paper towels.  Try and remove as much basil from the steak as possible.  Save the marinate for later.

10.  On the stovetop, add 2 tablespoons of butter to the same skillet you cooked your onions in, over high heat and let the butter melt completely, before adding the steak.  If grilling outside, heat the grill to 450 degrees, place steak on grill.  Sear the first side of the ribeye for 4 minutes.
