YES. That is where the flavor is. I do prefer my ribeyes cooked at least medium-rare so that the fat has begun to render at least. I like the leaner steaks (strip, filet mignon) pretty much rare as I don't think they benefit at much from the extra cooking.
I believe I've discovered a full-proof way to cook delicious steaks on the gas BBQ. I tenderize them and marinate them before putting on the grill.
I buy steaks from the grocery store, generally New York Strip. I tenderize them with a meat tenderizer/hammer (beat each steak on both sides, puncturing the meat). Then squeeze fresh lemon juice on the just pounded-meat. Then put the steaks in a ziplock bag and pour Italian dressing over the steaks. I keep them in the ziplock for at least 3 hours, turning them and "mushing" the marinade about every 20 minutes.
Remove steaks from the fridge about 30 minutes before putting them on the grill.
Pre-heat the BBQ. Then turn off the central burner (on a 3-burner grill) so that the steaks are cooked over indirect heat. Temp is about 550.
Remove steaks from the marinade and cook 1st side for 6 minutes. Turn the steaks (with tongs, so that you don't puncture the meat), and liberally sprinkle on some Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning. Cook for 7 - 8 minutes and ENJOY!
While the steaks are cooking, I generally prepare a batch of sauteed onions and mushrooms for a topping.
Yummy! This is what we're having tonight for dinner! I like to cook an extra steak and keep it in the fridge for a couple of days, great to snack on.
