During wintertime, our bodies need larger amounts of protein to fight the cold.
Eating more meat is normal this time of the year and if you start looking around, everyone seems to consume more meaty foods and plenty of high-protein vegetables.
Even if you usually don’t eat much meat, let alone steaks, this is the time when the smells and aromas will drag you into a world of perfect taste.
Don’t try to resist the urge, because you will regret it. We have a few great recipes for you to try and recommend to your loved ones.
If you have an appetite for ribeye steaks but you don’t have a large kitchen with a proper stove, you will be happy to know that an induction cooker will do, too.
You don’t really need a fancy kitchen to cook some of the best dishes, let alone some of the best steaks. All you need is the right mood, the right ingredients and a good induction cooker.
Induction cookers have the advantage of providing you with amazing temperature control and safety features. If you set a specific temperature and timing, you don’t have to worry about burning the food.
Induction cooktops automatically shut off when the time is up and you will be able to move around the kitchen preparing the garnish while the meat cooks on its own, without supervision.
Here are the 3 best ribeye steak recipes that you have to try right now:
The best ribeye steak recipes that can be made using an induction cooker
1. Suculent ribeye steak
You are planning a meal for 4 to 6 persons this evening and have no idea what to cook?
Try a suculent ribeye steak that you can make using nothing more than your induction cooker. Here’s what you will need:
• 4-6 Boneless ribeye steaks (32 ounces)
• Fresh black pepper (to taste)
• Garlic powder (to taste)
• Coarse salt (to taste)
It is important to let the steaks sit for at least half an hour before starting to season them.
Sink them in the seasoning mix (that you can adapt to your taste) and allow them to slowly melt on the meat before placing them in the pan.
While this process takes place, you can pre heat a frying pan or a skillet with a heavy bottom. If you are using an induction cooker with advanced temperature control, make sure to set it to medium-high levels.
Drop a little bit of coarse salt in the pan when it becomes hot. Then, place the steak right on top of the salt.
Let the meat cook for about 3 minutes, without checking it or moving it.
After the 3 minutes have passed, turn the stake over to the other side and cook it for an equal amount of time.
Do not let it fry more than 3 minutes if you wish to obtain a medium-cooked ribeye steak that is succulent and leaves your taste buds with the most amazing sensations.
You want it almost raw? Then simply leave it for less than 3 minutes.
If you place the meat on a pan and cover it with foil for a few minutes, it will absorb all the juices and you will impress your guests from the first…taste.
The great thing about this dish is that it can be served with any type of garnish and even on its own, with a little bit of horseradish.
2. Parsley-garlic buttered ribeye steak
How about a little culinary indulgence, now that the holidays are behind you? There is no reason why you should not eat amazingly delicious food on a typical day, which is why we recommend a ribeye steak that you can soak in parsley-garlic butter and pamper your senses.
This recipe is great for cold days when all you want is to stay indoors in the company of friends.
To do this, you will need your usual induction cooker on medium to high heat and the following ingredients:
• 3 ribeye steaks (1 pound each)
• Half a cup of soft butter
• Fresh chopped parsley
• Chopped chives
• 1 pressed garlic clove
• 2 spoons of cognac
• Salt and pepper to taste
Mix the parsley, garlic and butter in a bowl and simply let them rest, while covered.
Place the meat inside a pre-heated frying pan and let each side cook for approximately 6 minutes, without disturbing it.
Sprinkle it with the cool, mixed butter when it’s done and serve with a garnish of your choice.
3. Ribeye steak with homemade chips and spicy butter
If you are up to something that will give you chills, you must definitely try a chili-buttered ribeye steak with homemade chips.
Whether you decide to cook this for your family or a group of friends, you will leave your mark on their taste buds. It is spicy, but finger-licking delicious.
Here’s what you need:
• Chopped parsley
• 50 g of soft butter
• 1 red chopped chili pepper
• Half a spoon of lemon juice
• Olive oil
• 2 ribeye steaks, seasoned to taste
• Mixed salad leaves
• 500 g potatoes
• Thyme leaves
• 1 garlic clove
First, mix the chopped parsley, the chili, the butter and the lemon juice and add seasoning to taste.
Then, preheat the induction cooker and get a frying pan ready to toss the potato chips inside, along with the seasoning and olive oil and to let them cook for about 35 minutes.
Then, change or wash the frying pan, add some extra butter and the steaks afterwards. Leave them on medium-high heat for about 4 minutes on each side.
Take them out when fully cooked and serve them with the freshly fried homemade chips, fresh thyme leaves, garlic and the delicious butter topping. Your guests will simply melt.
These recipes are easy to make and can be done by anyone. You don’t need a fancy kitchen or a powerful stove to do them, so choose one of them, start getting the ingredients ready and have some fun while cooking! Enjoy!
