Ribeye Steak

There's a reason that the ribeye is one of the most popular menu items at a steakhouse. It's cut from the upper rib cage, just below the shoulder, in an area of the cow that does very little work. This steak is noticeably more tender with a rich and buttery texture, much of which is likely due to the ribeye's high fat content. Its generous marbling keeps the steak juicy throughout cooking and adds a lot of flavor. F&W's guide to ribeye helps you cook this cut perfectly and offers ideas for rubs, bastes and other flavorings.

Steakhouse-Style Rib Eyes

Jaw-dropping centerpiece dishes require two essentials: salt and time. Preseasoning is the simplest thing you can do to make a good piece of meat great. Given enough time to penetrate tissue, salt works flavor magic: It denatures proteins, breaking up their molecular strands into shorter amino acids—among them an abundance of glutamic acid, the essence of umami—to release a complex symphony of savory flavors. Rich cuts of meat, like a bone-in rib eye, benefit from a dry brine and air dry, which concentrates flavor. Seasoning ahead of time increases iron-y notes in prime-graded cuts of meat and breaks down the connective tissue, resulting in an especially juicy steak.

Steak Au Poivre with Red Wine Pan Sauce

Red wine pan sauce is an amalgamation of fond (those browned bits left in the pan after searing meat), shallots, broth, good-quality red wine, and a few pats of butter to bind it all together and thicken it to a syrupy consistency. A perfect interplay of acid from the wine and sumptuous fat, the sauce is an ideal accompaniment to a peppercorn-crusted rib eye steak. The well-marbled cut stays more tender than New York strip, and its rich, beefy flavor infuses the pan sauce. Trim the steak of large pieces of fat and tie it into a round for even cooking    Slideshow: More Rib Eye Steak Recipes
