How to Microwave a Ribeye Steak

By Andrine Redsteer

A rib eye steak is a tender cut of beef from a fore rib. Typically, rib eye steaks are boneless, which adds to their tenderness. Whether you have a bone-in rib eye or a boneless rib eye, you can cook it in the microwave using a couple different methods. Many people like to use a microwave browning grill when microwaving steaks. A microwave browning grill is generally heated in the microwave until very hot, and then a steak is placed on it and cooked. However, if you don't have a microwave browning grill, you can always use a microwave-safe dish.

Ribeye steaks can be cooked in the microwave in microwave-safe dishes.

Step 1

Place the rib eye in a microwave-safe dish. Some people choose water to cover the bottom of the dish. You can use water or a little oil to grease the dish. Put the rib eye in the dish with the oil or water. Add salt, pepper or other seasonings, if you wish.

Step 2

Put the rib eye in the microwave. You don't need to cover the dish with a lid. Set the microwave to medium-high.

Step 3

Cook the rib eye on medium-high for 10 to 12 minutes. Turn the steak every 3 to 4 minutes so it cooks evenly. A typical rib eye will be medium-well to well-done if cooked for 10 to 12 minutes.
