A Birthday Worthy Rib Eye Steak


Look no further for a celebration worth rib eye steak recipe! We are grilling these up today in honor of George Stephen's birthday! 

George simply wanted to grill a better steak when he invented the beloved Weber Kettle so it only seems fitting that we would fire up the grill today with an awesome steak recipe! 

Recipe from Weber's On the Grill™: Steak & Sides by Jamie Purviance

Bone-In Rib Eye Steaks with Sweet, Pan-Roasted Garlic

Serves 4
Grilling Time
6 to 8 mins
Prep Time
10 mins

the Ingredients

  • 25 garlic cloves, peeled
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, as needed
  • 4 bone-in rib-eye steaks, each 10 to 12 ounces and about 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • 01 In a small saucepan over low heat on the stove, combine the garlic and red pepper flakes with ½ cup oil, making sure you have enough oil to cover the garlic cloves. Cook at a low simmer until the garlic starts to turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the garlic to cool in the oil. The garlic will continue to soften and become deep golden brown until the oil cools completely.
  • 02 Pour ¼ cup of the garlic oil onto a sheet pan. Dredge the steaks through the oil, coating both sides. Season evenly with salt and pepper. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
  • 03 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F). If you're using a charcoal grill, keep a small part of the charcoal grate clear of briquettes as a safety zone of indirect heat.
  • 04 Grill the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 05 Serve the steaks warm, topped with a generous sprinkling of salt and some garlic. Spoon some of the garlic oil over the steaks, if desired.
