Teriyaki Rib Eye Steaks

Background and History

Teriyaki Rib Eye Steaks offer a delicious fusion of Japanese and Western culinary traditions. Originating in Japan, teriyaki sauce is a sweet and savory glaze made from soy sauce, sugar, and mirin, often used to marinate and flavor meats. When applied to juicy rib eye steaks and grilled to perfection, it creates a mouthwatering dish that’s sure to satisfy any palate.


  • 2 rib eye steaks (about 8-10 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional garnish: sliced green onions, sesame seeds

Serves 2 people
Preparation Time 10 minutes
Marinating Time  1-2 hours
Cooking Time  10-15 minutes


Prepare the Marinade

In a bowl, combine soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Mix well until the sugar is dissolved.

Marinate the Steaks

Place the rib eye steaks in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the steaks, ensuring they are fully coated. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, allowing the flavors to infuse into the meat.

Preheat the Grill

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Alternatively, you can use a grill pan or a skillet on the stovetop.

Grill the Steaks

Remove the steaks from the marinade and discard any excess marinade. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels to ensure even cooking. Brush both sides of the steaks with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper.

Cook the Steaks

Place the steaks on the preheated grill and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check for an internal temperature of 130-135°F (54-57°C) for medium-rare.

Rest and Slice

Once cooked, transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a juicy and tender steak.

Garnish and Serve

Slice the rib eye steaks against the grain into thin strips. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds, if desired. Serve immediately.
