Certified Piedmontese Grass Fed Ribeye Steak

For this steak recipe, I recommend Certified Piedmontese 18oz Grass Fed, Grass Finished Ribeye Steak. It’s a steak lover’s dream come true. With half the fat and calories of a traditional ribeye, it’s melt-in-your-mouth tender and packed with flavor. 

About Certified Piedmontese

Certified Piedmontese beef is derived from the Piedmontese breed of cattle which is known for its natural leanness and tenderness. This creates a premium dining experience without any added calories and fat.

Additionally, the cows are raised in the Midwest using sustainable and humane practices, without the use of hormones, antibiotics, or steroids. This results in a source-verified grass-fed, grass-finished beef that is not only delicious but also responsibly produced.

Tuscan Marinade Ingredients

A few simple ingredients are needed to bring this bright and flavorful marinade to life. 

Olive oil

This is the base of the marinade – I recommend using a good extra virgin olive oil. 

Herbs

A mixture of fresh herbs such as thyme and rosemary add a bright and earthy flavor to this marinade. Fresh herbs are highly recommended for the best flavor, but dried herbs can also be used. 

Lemon

The zest and juice of a lemon add an extra kick of bright zest and wake up the other ingredients. 

Garlic

That classic flavor that we all love. Plus, it pairs perfectly with the lemon and the herbs!

Steak Marinating Tips:

Choose the right vessel

Grab a deeper dish such as a 9×9 or 9×13 baking dish that the steaks can be nestled into the marinade in, covered in plastic wrap and refrigerated. Or, use a plastic storage bag with a sealable top. 

Bring it to room temp

If you are letting the steaks marinate in the refrigerator, make sure to bring them back to room temperature prior to grilling so that they cook evenly on the grill. 

Marinating timeframe

Since we are using a good, tender ribeye steak, the marinating process is solely for flavor and not for tenderizing. I recommend 30 minutes to 1 hour as we don’t want to compromise the textural integrity of the steak. But, if you were using a flank steak or a tougher cut of meat, they can be marinated for longer periods of time to tenderize (3-5 hours). 

Get rid of the leftover marinade

As tempting as it is to use the leftover marinade after the steaks are removed, it is best to discard it. You also want to make sure to gently wipe off the excess marinade off the steaks prior to grilling so that the grill doesn’t flame up from the oil.

Steak Grilling Tips:

Preheat your grill

Make sure to get your grill properly preheated! After the grill is nice and hot, I like to turn off one side of the grill so that I have a “cool zone” to move the steaks to if needed. 

Don't touch it!

I know it’s tempting to want to keep checking and flipping the steaks, but let them sit to get a good sear and grill marks. I’m a big fan of only flipping the steaks over one time once they are ready to keep them tender.

Oil + Grill = Fire

Gently removing the excess marinade from the steaks is important since it is an oil-based marinade. When oil hits the grill, it will cause to flame up and no one wants that! 

Use a meat thermometer

Unless you have a good feel and read of how you like your steaks cooked, I recommend using a meat thermometer to determine the doneness of the steak so you don’t over or under-cook them.

Steak Cooking Temperatures

Note: The steak will cook about another 5 degrees after you pull it off the heat, so make sure to remove the steak slightly before it hits the doneness you desire.

  • Rare: 120 to 130 F
  • Medium-Rare: 130 to 135 F
  • Medium: 140 to 150 F
  • Medium-Well: 155 to 165 F
  • Well-Done: 170 F or more
Always allow your steaks to rest 5-10 minutes after removing from the grill so that they stay nice and juicy prior to slicing!
