How to Reverse Sear Steak on the Grill

In this Reverse Seared Ribeye Steak Recipe, we will teach you how to cook a reverse Seared Cowboy Ribeye steak on the grill. This Easy Reverse Seared Steak Recipe is one that is simple to do and tastes great! We made these on the Napoleon Kettle grill, but you can also do this on any other type of grill using the indirect cooking method. Everything you need to know is below.


2 – 2.5lbs Ribeye Steaks
Kosher Salt
Fresh ground Black Pepper
Worcestershire sauce


Step #1
First you are going to have to season your steaks. We want the ribeye steaks to be the star of the dish so we just seasoned ours with Worcestershire sauce, Kosher Salt and Fresh Black Pepper. Once this is done you are going to let it sit for about 20-30 minutes. It is during this time that you can get your grill set up for indirect cooking at 250 degrees (F).

Step #2
Once your grill is set up for indirect cooking you are going to place your steak on the grill opposite the coals. You are going to cook these for about 30-40 minutes until it reaches an internal tempreture of 120 degrees. NOTE: Once the steaks reach 90 degrees feel free to flip them. This is not necessary, but won’t hurt it either.

Step #3
Once the steaks reach 120 degree remove them from the grill to let them rest for about 5 minutes, this will allow the meat to relax a bit as well as give you an opportunity to load up your grill with additional fresh hot coals. Once your grill has been replenished with hot coals, go a head and place your steak back on the grill over direct heat. If you are using a BBQ that allows you to lower the grill, it is a good idea to lower it so that your steaks are closer to the coals making for a more intense sear.

Step #4
When you start your sear you are going to sear each side for about 1.5 minutes or until your preferred doneness. We flipped ours twice (searing both side two times) about 45 seconds each

When your Steaks reach an internal temp of 135 take them off the grill and let them rest about 5 minutes before you start to feast.

That’s it, Enjoy.
