Grilled Teriyaki Rib Eye with Ginger Tomatoes – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Yes, I’m on a tomato kick right now, as I should be, because they’re freaking awesome!  If you haven’t enjoyed an heirloom, or freshly grown tomato yet this summer, go out and find one immediately.  The flavors are sweet, yet tart with a little sunshine in every bite.  I want them sliced, diced or pureed over anything and everything, including grilled meat until the season’s end.

Tomatoes go with almost anything you can grill, but even better with a rib eye steak because they balance out the fattiness with fresh acidity.  Diced tomatoes play the part of a good sauce, that you might serve in a gravy boat alongside a steak (not gravy though), just use the boat for good sauce other than gravy, however not in this case, we’re using fresh tomatoes.  Fresh ginger stirred into the tomatoes, heightens the experience with a light kick of spice that enlightens your senses, and makes you take notice.

An easy Teriyaki marinade that the rib eye spends a few hours, or possibly overnight, makes the whole dish come together with an Asian(y) theme.  I enjoyed all of it, together, as an easy casual meal, especially those fresh summer tomatoes.
