    So my buthcer hooked me up with 4 x 500gm Rib Eye (cowboy steaks)
    Anyone with tips on how to cook them on the BBQ grill for a medium result?
    Do you guys just grill & mark them or grill and oven them?

    [​IMG]

    perhaps i will elaborate a bit more

    meat is out coming to room temperature for about 90 mins

    lightly oiling and seasoning the meat before
    I plan to cook 8 mins each side on a medium - med/high heat
    rest for half of the total cooking time (8mins) in its thin side so the blood doesnt rush out (less surface area)
    glaze with butter / season with salt / pepper

    just wanted to confirm / get some tips from you guys before i go an kill $60 worth of meat on the BBQ

    def grill then oven it to get the best result. Love the keep it simple idea too - if im paying $60 for meat all i need is a little seasoning to let me taste the meat.

    Grill over direct heat until well browned. If still undercooked, move off direct heat until done. Thermometer is essential :)

    I would sous vide then griddle.

    Since you are unlikely to have a sous vide machine I would oven first on low heat using a thermometer (for medium rare you need a temp of 55 to 57 degrees C).

    Then on to a super hot griddle platter to finish marking and caramelising the outside.

    Looks good :thumbup:

    Here's my tips for BBQ Rib eye.


    Click to view full size!

    Grab your steak. I figured 580 grams would be sufficient for me but not everyone will eat that much steak.

    Salt and pepper very well (both sides)

    Make sure your bbq is very hot. I turn all burners on high, shut the lid and leave it till the temperature shows over 200C.

    Use the grill. I use the grill for BBQing everything from snags to bacon. You must try grilled bacon if you haven't before.

    Depending how big your steak is and how hot your BBQ is it can take anything from 5 - 10 mins each side. I have a lava rock cradle with lava rock which give the grill heaps more heat. Keep the heat on high and the lid closed. Turn the steak only once but to get nice grill marks rotate 90 degrees halfway through the cooking on each side.

    Once it is cooked put on a plate and cover with foil for at least 5 mins.

    Serve with whatever you like as sides.

    Dan77 looks magnificent!

    The cut of meat you have is how i perceive a rib eye to be.
    Is my butcher giving me the wrong cut or do i have to ask for it to be trimmed up?

    Thanks for the pics

    To be honest, I've never seen rib eye like what you have posted (It might just be the way it is trimmed up tho). I've gotten mine from many different butchers and the have all been similar to the ones in my above pic except the bone is sometimes longer. You might want to try another butcher??

    This is how mine started off. I got mine from a wholesaler butcher who has a small shop just outside their main factory.

    Very sorry......don't know how you do a veg night but each to their own! ;)

    i believe its called a cowboy steak which is a version of rib eye?

    i prefer not to eat vegetables on their own - the wheelchairs dont taste that good unless you put sauce on them :)

    Dunno.....the steak looks like it comes from the rib section but I don't know enough about all cuts of beef to say. I haven't seen cowboy steak before but that could just be a cross border thing. :p

    It's a good habit ... two nights a week of nothing but vegetarian means I can eat meat the rest of the week. Including a big, fat steak with chips and no bloody veggies (at least, not until next Fri) :)

    It's a ribeye without the bone. Also known as a Cote de Boeuf (somehow it sounds more expensive in French).

    Check this video out

    French style with a serious rib eye.
    Is it wagyu?

    Its just different ends of the fillet. His cut comes more from towards the shoulder while yours looks like its further down the the back. Yours is also trimmed harder.

    A lot of other things can have an impact on the finished product, like breed, age and what it was fed on. I think even vac packing can change the shape of the muscle slightly.

    That is the most impressive piece of meat i've ever seen... God knows where you would buy that or how much it would cost!

    Yeah I know and perfectly cooked as well.

    I think its wagyu and its around 1.2 kilo so would be around $140
