Cast Iron Ribeye

cast iron ribeye

More and more apartments, condos and homeowner associations are banning charcoal and gas grills that have been synonymous with summertime for decades. Making cast iron ribeye is a simple way to get a perfectly cooked steak for those of us that live in an area that doesn’t allow outdoor cooking over an open flame.


  • 1 inch thick ribeyes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • granulated garlic
  • bacon drippings or butter
  • minced garlic

Grab your ribeyes.

Season with salt, pepper and granulated garlic.

Set steaks in cast iron pan and let them rest for an hour.

Cover with minced garlic.

Bake at 275 degrees for 20 minutes.

Remove steaks from pan and add drippings or butter.

Once the pan is hot sear each side of steak for 30 to 90 seconds.

To tell how well your steak is cooked you can use the simple hand method.

Let your steak rest for 10 minutes before cutting.

Tell the HOA to shove it as you sit on your deck enjoying your cast iron ribeye.
