Citrus marinated ribeye steaks - our favorite cut of steak marinated in olive oil, orange, lemon, rosemary, and garlic.
If you've been a follower of this blog for long, you'll already know that we truly enjoy beef around here. Maybe it's because my daddy always had cows on the farm and that meant beef in our freezer when I was growing up. I just know it's always my protein of choice.
We've tried many different ways of cooking steaks over the years and have settled on a dry rub mixture that we usually use. But recently I wanted to try something a little different, so I came up with this recipe for a Citrus Marinated Ribeye with lots of Mediterranean flavors.
The marinade has good olive oil, fresh lemon juice, orange juice, rosemary, and garlic. It's truly delicious!
The only caution - don't leave your steaks in the marinade too long or the citrus juices will start to cook them. Not good.
How to Make Citrus Marinated Ribeye
Just mix up your marinade ingredients in a large resealable bag, add the steaks, and let them sit for about 1 ½ hours. No more.
Grill the steaks until they're cooked the way you like them. While you're cooking the steaks, heat the marinade over medium heat, reduce to a simmer and keep warm. Spoon a little of the warm marinade over the finished steaks while they're resting.
You're gonna really love this one. I just know it!
