    Why ruin such a nice steak? Ribeye is probably the best cut of meat you can
    buy and needs no marinating.

    Thanks (Paul et al), that's what I thought but found a recipe with good
    reviews ...
    http://allrecipes.com/recipe/savory-...ks/detail.aspx

    Maybe I should stick with the usual oil and garlic salt then
    sear and stick in the oven?

    That recipe says nothing about which steak. That marinade may be fine
    for a tougher cut like round or chuck but it would ruin a rib steak.
    And I see no culinary use whatsoever for the cheapo faux balsamic they
    sell at stupidmarkets... it really belongs in the housewares section,
    with the drain cleaners.

    A rib steak needs no more than a wee bit of salt and pepper.

    Either balsamic would work, pick the least expensive one. Your
    marinade would work with skirt steak for fajitas or maybe a hangar
    steak, but don't mess up a decent rib eye, NY or filet with something
    like that unless you are trying to improve a piece of supermarket
    "standard" grade meat.

    A word of caution though, you might over cook the steak if you finish
    it in the oven. Most supermarket steaks are cut too thin for that
    treatment. It will be cooked by the time you finish searing it. Use
    your instant read thermometer if you haven't cooked steak that way
    before.

    Lightly salt and pepper both sides. Sear under the broiler till medium
    rare. Top with a pat of butter.

    That's all it needs.

    Thanks, and got it ... go light on seasoning for rib eye (or good cut)
    steak.
    I usually don't eat much red meat but bought a tray of rib eye when
    Safeway recently had a sale. Quality seems good and nice thickness. So
    far,
    my sear and stick in the oven method results in a nice medium-rear done
    steak.
    Total cooking time is about 5-6 minutes.

    I would, especially with a ribeye.

    Soy sauce on steak?? Why not just buy some beef jerky? Maybe it is just
    me, but I cringe when I see someone adding soy to decent beefsteak.

    Neither is a real balsamic. If you really want that flavor on the
    steak, put a couple of drops of Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale after
    cooking

    somebody should develop an after-the-fact spell checker to come up with
    these types of comments automatically.

    there are other avenues for your efforts. Might cause you to up your game a
    bit, though.

    You put a pat of butter on top of a nicely broiled rib-eye steak?
    Why?

    that way.

    Even a nice compound butter, using herbs, it's so great on a steak.
    Even a ribeye.
