Grilled Cowboy Cut Rib Eye Steaks plated with baked beans and baked potato with butter, sour cream, and chives

Grilled Cowboy Cut Ribeye Steaks

I found this cooking method in Cook’s Country Magazine.  I thought the whole process sounded intriguing, so, I tried it.  It is more labor intensive than just throwing a steak on the grill, but believe me, it is worth it!

Also, note that ribeyes are pretty fatty (which is why they taste so good).  So, make this recipe as a “once-in-awhile” special meal.  Or, you can reduce the portion size by serving 8 people instead of the 6 servings in the recipe.

Cowboy cut ribeye steaks are thick-cut bone-in steaks. This is probably my favorite cut of steak just because they have so much flavor and are always tender.

Grill the Steaks:

  • Prepare grill to maintain 300°F using indirect heat method.
    Place steaks on grill with bone side facing heat. Grill, covered for 10-20 minutes, or until meat reaches 75°F. Turn steaks over with bone side still facing heat and grill, covered for 10-20 minutes. Cook until meat registers 95°F.
    Turn on all burners, or high heat setting for indoor grill. Cook steaks for about 4 minutes per side, or until meat reaches 120°F (medium-rare).
    Transfer steaks to cutting board. Loosely tent with foil and let rest for 15 minutes.
