How to Cook Ribeye Steak on Top of Stove in Skillet

It has been the common practice of almost everybody who does not have any access of using barbeque grill to use a stove in order cook ribeye steak. This is also doable and highly recommended. However, the smoke created while cooking this dish might trigger some alarm inside the house, therefore it is best to make sure that the alarm system is set off or to ensure that when cooking the ribeye steak less smoke will be created.

There are different ways of cooking ribeye steaks such as grilling or baking it inside the oven. But for simple and easy ways to cook such meat, it would be advisable to use the stove.


  • cast iron skillet
  • baking dish pan
  • ribeye steak
  • salt
  • black pepper (fresh and cracked)


  1. First, you need to prepare the steak. The process will include seasoning the meat with the use of a rub which consists of pepper and salt. If you want to marinate the steak, you may do so. However, if you do have an alarm system or a skin which is sensitive skin, then you might want to avoid marinating the meat. Dry rubs do serve as good seasoning but you cannot get different flavours that you are looking for.
  2. Put your stove on high heat and be sure that before you do anything the skillet is extremely hot. To ensure that the steak will not stick right to the skillet, spray the pan with a bit of olive oil. Then, put on the steak right on top of the skillet. This will give you that sizzling sound. This process is called searing the steak right on both sides. If you want the meat to be done on medium rare, cooking on each side for about 2 minutes will do.
  3. After 4 minutes in total of cooking the ribeye steak, you are now ready for the next step, get the meat out of the skillet and place it on a platter. You can put on a little bit of garnishing on top of the meat or maybe a vegetable side dish perhaps. If you want to eat a few carbohydrates, have a cup of rice place at the side of the platter or mashed potatoes.
  4. Be sure, you have a glass of red wine ready to top it all. Drinking red wine after munching on ribeye steak will make your dinner or meal the best.
