Heinens 4PM Panic: Glazed Ribeye and California Reds

Home Newsroom Heinens 4PM Panic: Glazed Ribeye and California Reds

For this week’s Heinen’s 4PM Panic post, I’m sharing a super simple way to entertain your friends with a delicious meal and a truly delicious wine paring. The bone-in Ribeye, hand cut by the butcher at heinen’s, is perfectly marbleized allowing for that rich “fatty” flavor in our steak.

Fatty meats work great with bold and tannic red wines. The tannin is an astringent which works as a palate cleanser to cleanse the fattiness from the inside of our mouth leaving a flavor combination that will keep you reaching for more. This is why Paul Dolan Cabernet from Mendocino County and Purple Heart Red blend from Napa Valley pair so will with this ribeye.  I personally enjoyed both wines but the Purple Heart Vineyard gives a percentage of their sales to the Purple Heart Association helping Veterans and their families so that put it on the top of the list for me.

Glazed Ribeye

Ingredients:

Adjust amounts according to number of guests.

  • 1 thick-cut rib-eye steak
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce

Method:

  • Sprinkle on all sides with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Heat your grill to the max heat–that means at least three of the burners on full blast high, and keeping the lid closed for a good 5-10 minutes.
  • Mix the melted butter together with the soy sauce in a small bowl.
  • When the grill is heated, put the steak on the grill, letting it brown for about 1-2 minutes. You can close the grill lid to let the heat build up and get some nice caramelization on the edges of the steak.
  • After 1-2 minutes, turn the steak 45 degrees to get those pretty grill marks. Let cook again for 1-2 minutes. Flip the steak and repeat the above steps for the other side.
  • If you are cooking a very thick steak, use your tongs lift up the steak and brown the edges.
  • Liberally brush the steak with the soy-butter mixture using a heat-proof basting brush. Flip the steak and brush the other side. You may want to wear an oven mitt for this process, as the butter may cause some fairly strong flame-ups. It’s a good idea to have a spray bottle or cup of water to put out flare ups.  You want to glaze and char your steak not burn it.

The glaze will make the steak perfectly caramelized and charred on the outside! Those grill marks you worked on earlier add the perfect uniformity of char and color!

  • Liberally glaze the steak continuously until it’s cooked to your preferred done-ness – rare, medium-rare, medium, etc. This translates to grilling the steak for an additional 3-5 minutes for medium-rare, 5-7 minutes for medium, or 8-10 minutes for medium-well, though this does depend on steak thickness. A better test for done-ness is to poke the steak gently with the tongs. The squishier it is, the rarer your steak will be. More firm means more well-done.
  • Remove the steak from the heat and let rest for 10-15 minutes. I know this seems like a long wait but doing this will allow the juices to settle inside the steak so when you slice it the juice will be in every bite instead of running all over your plate.

We served our steak with roasted garlic.  It’s a perfect paring and incredibly simple to make.  Simply cut the top off of a head of garlic. Drizzle it with olive oil and salt then place it cut side down in an oven proof dish.  Cover tightly with tinfoil and bake at 375° for about 30 minutes.  The top will get caramelized and each clove of garlic will be soft and spreadable.

In keeping with the simplicity of preparing this steak we decided to make grilled slices of yellow squash and red onion to serve as a side.  To prepare your grilled yellow squash simply slice them and sprinkle them with kosher salt.  We used a grill pan on the stove top because our grill was busy with the steaks. Inside or out, get your grill pan nice and hot brush the pan with olive oil.  Place squash and onion slices on the grill without overlapping.  Grill until you see nice grill lines flip and grill the other side.  Remove to a platter.  These are good hot but I enjoy them even better at room temperature.

When I was at Heinen’s picking up my steaks I found a special treat in the produce department.  This month Chanterelle mushrooms are available. They are sweet, meaty and slightly peppery.  They’re a perfect accompaniment for our steak.  I simply sautéed them in a little olive oil and a slash of white wine.
