Dry Aged Rib Eye 

This recipe for cooking a Dry Aged Rib Eye steak with a delicious topping of Baby Bella mushrooms, garlic, butter, truffle salt, and gorgonzola cheese is a gourmet approach to grilling. The pairing suggestions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Zinfandel, or red blends complement the rich flavors of the beef and the umami from the mushrooms, while a glass of Pinot Noir is recommended to enjoy during the cooking process. Here’s a streamlined version of the preparation steps:


– 1 Dry-Aged Ribeye Steak per person (1 ½ inch cut, bone-in preferred)

– Seasoning (e.g., Omaha Steak Private Reserve Rub)

– Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced

– Butter

– Garlic, minced

– Truffle Salt

– Gorgonzola Cheese


– Pig’s Tail (or tongs) for flipping the steak

Preparation Steps: Dry Aged Rib Eye

  1. Season the Steak: Rub the seasoning generously over both sides of the ribeye. Let it sit for 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Prepare the Mushrooms: If not pre-sliced, slice the mushrooms. Place them in a pie tin with butter, minced garlic, and a sprinkle of truffle salt.
  3. Cook the Mushrooms: Place the tin on a medium-heat area of the grill, stirring occasionally.
  4. Sear the Steak: Sear both sides of the steak on a high-heat area of the grill, then move to a medium-heat area to continue cooking.
  5. Grill to Desired Doneness: Cook each side for 4-5 minutes, using the finger test to check for doneness.
  6. Reverse Sear Option: For a reverse sear, start on the medium heat side, then sear on high heat for the last minute on each side.
  7. Add Toppings: Top the steaks with the cooked mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese before serving.
