Prime Rib Vs. Ribeye: What's the Difference?
Before you cry foul at the suggestion that you can cook a prime rib on the George Foreman grill, you should learn what makes these two types of beef different from one another.
According to cooking expert Jim Coleman, the answer to this question isn't that simple, but here is the answer in a nutshell. True enough, the ribeye is a steak whereas the prime rib is a roast, but both of these beef dishes come from the rib. As for the "prime" part, it has to do with the cut of meat. (Read Jim's whole answer on Philly.com.) This cut of meat is as close as you come to a prime rib without actually being prime rib.
Cooking Rib Steak on a George Foreman Grill
The advantage of the ribeye in the prime rib versus ribeye debate is that you may not want to cook a whole prime rib roast recipe. The ribeye is a happy medium and great choice year-round when you don't have the budget to cook a prime rib recipe or it's just too hot to cook a roast -- think beef in the summertime.
According to celeb chef, Bobby Flay, the best seasoning for ribeye steak is:
- Ground black pepper
- Chili powder
- Cayenne pepper
And if you're me, you add:
- White pepper
- Garlic salt in place of the salt
Rub the ribeye with the seasoning before cooking the steak on the George Foreman grill. Watch the video at the top of the article for simple instructions for using your grill to cook a ribeye.
