Celebrate Dad with a delicious steak dinner: Butter and Soy Glazed Rib Eye

Father’s Day is just around the corner and in my family there is not a better way to celebrate dad than with a delicious steak dinner. Whether you fire up the grill, sear on the stove top or use your broil setting in the oven this steak dinner will delight you and dad.

This flavorful Butter and Soy Glazed Rib Eye Steak combines creamy butter, garlic and soy for a perfect and delightful steak. The glaze is brushed onto the meat and when it sears, the result will surprise you.

Each glorious bite is perfectly caramelized and slightly charred. You can’t have just one bite!


· 1 thick cut rib eye steak

· 4 garlic cloves finely minced or pressed

· 4 tablespoons of butter - melted

· ¼ cup light soy sauce

· ½ teaspoon sugar

· Salt to taste

· Freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat your grill to high.

In a small bowl combine the melted butter with the garlic, soy sauce and sugar. Place in microwave for about 30 seconds to help the flavors infuse into the butter. Mix well to dissolve all sugar.

Sprinkle salt all over the steak and sear on high heat on all sides. Allow steak to sear for about 1-2 minutes per side to allow caramelization to occur. Once the steak is nicely brown on all sides, brush the glaze on all sides of the steak and continue to cook. Continue turning on all sides and brushing glaze at every turn until steak is cooked to your desired doneness.

Once the steak is cooked to your liking, remove from the heat and allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes. Before slicing and serving sprinkle some freshly cracked pepper on the steak.

I like to serve the steak on a pretty wood board with roasted garlic and any leftover glaze. Enjoy!

If you like to serve it with roasted garlic you can slice the very top of a whole garlic head, leaving the root side attached to hold the garlic cloves in place. Place in a large square of aluminum foil and drizzle some oil on top of each garlic head. Wrap in foil and roast in a 400-degree oven for about 35 minutes. This can be done on the BBQ grill - heat up your grill and use two layers of aluminum paper to wrap garlic heads. Place aluminum packet on rack, cover the grill and allow garlic to roast for about 45-60 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve.
