Tasty Facts

– Ribeye is the fattest and juiciest beef steak. As meat, it is preferable to choose Australian beef and preferably chilled. So the products retain their beneficial properties better, in contrast to deep freezing. In Russia, unfortunately, such a breed of breeding bulls has never been bred – certain feeds and growing technology are needed. Only in recent years, individual livestock breeders have paid attention to this breed, for example, in the Lipetsk region. Local agricultural producers believe that in the future Lipetsk marbled meat can compete with world producers of elite beef.

– For cooking steak ribeye panGrill can be replaced with a regular cast iron pan. In this case, the grill pan is just an element of imitation of the grill grill. It is not necessary to grease the pan with vegetable or butter. It is enough to dip the pieces of ribeye steak themselves into the oil a little.

– There are 6 degrees of readiness of the ribeye steak – from very raw (so-called with blood) to fully cooked. If it takes only a couple of minutes to cook the first option, then the last one will be fried for all 8 minutes, plus rather thick pieces of meat (4 centimeters) will need to be brought to readiness in the oven. Also distinguish between half-baked and medium-rare steak with blood (4 and 6 minutes each, respectively), medium-rare steak (7 minutes) and ready-made (8 minutes) – as indicated in the main recipe. – Before servingit is desirable that the fried pieces lie a little on the plate – about 5 minutes. This will allow the meat juices to evenly distribute.
