How Do You Cook a Ribeye Steak on a Z Grill?

Grilling a ribeye steak is a delicious and popular way to enjoy this juicy and flavorful cut of meat. If you have a Z Grill, you’re in luck because it’s a fantastic tool for grilling steaks to perfection. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps on how to cook a ribeye steak on your Z Grill, ensuring that you achieve that perfectly cooked medium-rare steak with beautiful grill marks.

What You’ll Need:

  • Ribeye steak(s)
  • Z Grill
  • Meat thermometer
  • Tongs
  • Salt and pepper (or your preferred steak seasoning)

Step 1: Preparing the Ribeye Steak


Start by seasoning your ribeye steak(s) with salt and pepper or your preferred steak seasoning. Make sure to season both sides of the steak evenly.

Step 2: Preheating Your Z Grill


Preheat your Z Grill to a temperature of around 450°F (232°C). This high heat will help sear the outside of the steak, locking in its juices and creating those desirable grill marks.


If your Z Grill has a specific “steak” setting, use that for optimal results. Otherwise, set it to “High.”

Step 3: Grilling the Ribeye Steak


Carefully place the seasoned ribeye steak(s) on the preheated grill grates. Let them sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side. This initial searing will create a flavorful crust on the outside of the steak.

Grill Marks:

After the initial sear, rotate the steak(s) 45 degrees and let them continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes. This rotation will give your steak those beautiful crosshatch grill marks.

Internal Temperature:

Using a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature of your ribeye steak(s). For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of around 135-140°F (57-60°C).

Step 4: Resting and Serving


Once your ribeye steak(s) reach the desired internal temperature, remove them from the grill and let them rest for about 5 minutes. This resting period allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a tender and juicy steak.


Slice your grilled ribeye steak(s) against the grain and serve immediately. Pair it with your favorite sides like mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a fresh salad.


If you prefer your steak cooked to a different level of doneness, adjust the cooking time accordingly. Remember to use a meat thermometer to ensure accurate results.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully cooked a delicious ribeye steak on your Z Grill. Enjoy every juicy bite!
