How Long to Cook Rib Eye in Oven


Steak is one of the most popular dishes to cook at home. It’s easy to prepare, and you can serve it with almost any side dish. The only downside is that you have to know how long to cook your steak in order to get the most tender and flavorful results. That’s why we’re here! We’ll walk through everything you need to know about cooking rib eye steaks in the oven so that yours come out perfectly medium-rare every time

Step 1

  • Remove the rib eye from the refrigerator and let it sit for about 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, or 200 degrees Celsius.
  • Place your cast iron skillet over medium heat on your stovetop until it’s hot enough that you can hold your hand above it for just a second or two (you don’t want to burn yourself). Add 1 tablespoon of oil to this pan before searing your steak; this will keep them from sticking when you put them in later on!

Step 2


Now that you’re armed with the basic information, it’s time to cook your rib eye steak. First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 Celsius). If you have an electric or gas oven, set it to broil mode; otherwise leave it on bake mode.

Next, season both sides of your steak liberally with salt and pepper and place in a cast iron skillet or other oven-safe pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side–or until it reaches the desired doneness level: medium rare if cooked for 3-4 minutes per side; medium if cooked for 4-5 minutes per side; well done when cooked 6 minutes per side.

Step 3

The third and final step is to let the steak rest for 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a juicier slice of rib eye. While you’re waiting for that time to pass, slice up your steak and serve it with some sides!

This recipe will give you medium-rare, but if you prefer more done meat, cook it longer.

The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your steak and your oven. If you want more done meat, cook it longer. Use a meat thermometer to ensure doneness; this recipe will give you medium-rare, but if you prefer more done meat, cook it longer.
