    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.

      2tall, if you are going to learn anything from this forum, it should be this:

      Eat the fat.

          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.

            Oh my god that is a HUGE waste of a good ribeye. You are henceforth FORBIDDEN to ever eat a ribeye, you Phillistine.

                So, I finally got my grass fed beef... Decided on a ribeye. I did a really light cajun rub so it wouldn't mask the flavor. If it was any more tender, I wouldn't have needed teeth to eat it.



                Definitely worth the $4/lb premium over grocery store beef!!

                And yeah, that's a whole onion that I fried up in the beef fat/oil left over from cooking the steak.

                      I slice really thin and grill very lightly. Game meat has to be eaten fairly quickly though as it can dry out easily. I also use some pink salt and kakadu sauce as well.

                        Thin steak sucks. I like pink salt too, right now I'm using "Real Salt" which I'm very fond of. It has a pink tint as well

                          anybody out there air-drying meat or going further to dry-age it? ive been reading on the zeroinginonhealth forums and they have some nice setups! you just simply place the meat on the rack no need to cover as long as the fridge is clean
                          check em out...meat gasm!
