I enjoy marinating steaks as often as I can and use different types of marinades for each session.  I find that I like the more subtle and sometimes more acidic versions of the recipes for my steaks.  As for Rib Eye steaks they are more substantial in terms of size and require more intense flavor to get deep into the meat.  It's also a good idea to consider the amount of time you intend to marinate the meat.  I would normally marinade up to three hours although you can marinade overnight if you find that your steaks are lower quality.  Marinade for a reasonably long period of time can tenderize the steaks.  If you choose to marinade for longer than 24 hours keep in mind your steaks will turn mushy.  It's best not to marinade for longer than the 24 hour period.  Also, you MUST discard the marinade after use.  Do NOT reuse the marinade for any purpose simply discard the marinade down the drain or in the trash can.  Reusing marinades that have been kept on the meat for more than 24 hours will allow bacteria to spread to spread to other uses which can of course make you ill.  

Best bets are to start a fresh batch of marinades and steak sauce each time you make new steaks and enjoy the flavors.  

There's nothing like an incredibly juicy Rib Eye Steak.

Bonus Marinade Recipe:

We've taken our best flavorful Rib Eye Steak Recipe and combined that with our marinade process. Here's how you do it.


Place your steak into your mixing bowl and cover with Jake's Maple Bourbon Marinade. Allow the steak to marinate for at least four hours. Allowing this recipe to marinate over night in the fridge is even better. Then fire up the grill and invite family and friends over.

After marinating and just before placing on the grill for cooking remove steaks from container and hold aside.

Prepare Barbecue grill with charcoal. Start charcoal, let burn until all briquettes are ashed white. Prepare the grill by taking a paper towel or cloth and coating it with the olive oil. Rub the olive oil from the towel or cloth onto the grill plate coating each runner as much as possible. The olive oil helps season the barbecue grill and keeps the steaks from sticking during the cooking process.


Prepare the barbecue grill to a very hot temperature. The hotter the grill, the more tender the beef. Place steaks on grill and allow them to cook halfway through. Searing the meat increases tenderness. Turn the meat with long-handled tongs (for easier handling and to prevent the loss of juices which occurs when meat is punctured with a fork) and finish grilling to degree of doneness desired.

An absolutely fabulous flavorful meal and delicious steak recipe crowd pleaser!
