How to Have Succulent Grilled Rib Eye Steak:
Grilling rib eye steak is like grilling any other type of steak. You should begin with the quality of meat cut the right way. If you are able to do this, your grilled rib eye steak will certainly shine without the need for elaborated tenderizers or flavorings. How would you assess the quality of meat you will be using for your next grilling rib eye steak agenda? Remember that prime meat is superior, choice meat is just a runner up and select is third placer and you shall never choose "select" meat for a steak. The grading system of meat especially the rib eye is based on the amount of the visible fat that shows throughout the muscle tissue and this is called marbling. The meat for your grilled rib eye should be richly marbled and when this is the case, it gets higher grade because it is juicier, more flavorful and tenderer. This is because of the intramuscula fat that bastes and melts while grilling it. Also, because the fat in the meat insulates, marbling can provide the prevention of the meat being overcooked.
