This recipe idea came from a comment on YouTube - someone asked “Have you ever thought about deep frying a ribeye?” Well I had no idea that was even possible, so challenge accepted!
Here’s the plan: we’re deep frying two ribeye steaks. One of them is going in plain, and will be seasoned with salt and pepper afterwards. The other one will be seasoned with Cow Cover Hot and Texas Beef before going in the deep fryer.
First up, we’re filling up the fryer. Use peanut oil or canola oil - these are ideal since they have a high smoke point. Don’t use other vegetable oils, as they will smoke badly and ruin your food.
Fire up the fryer and let the oil come up to 350ºF.
Next up, we’re throwing one of the steaks in plain, with no seasoning of any kind. Use a meat probe to monitor internal temperature. When the steak hits 127ºF, pull it out of the fryer. Season with salt & pepper.
For the other steak, we’re seasoning it first on both sides. Then throw it in the fryer and repeat the process, pulling it when it hits a core temperature of 127ºF.
Now, I could’ve just left it there, and enjoyed these deep fried ribeye steaks in all their crispy goodness. But what’s the fun in that? Time to introduce your next favorite thing: Ribeye steak burnt ends.
