High Cotton Marinated Rib-Eye

recipe box


  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 (46 oz.) can pineapple juice (Dole preferred)
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 (14- to 16 oz.) rib-eye steaks


In a heavy saucepan, combine vinegar, ginger and garlic and heat until lightly simmering. Add brown sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, completely dissolving the sugar before adding more. Pour liquid into a large container. (It should be large enough to accommodate the steaks with space between each one.) Add the pineapple juice and soy sauce to the mixture. Whisk thoroughly until all ingredients are well-incorporated. Refrigerate until cold (it is important not to pour marinade over steaks while it is still warm).

When marinade has chilled, add the rib-eye steaks to the container. Push the steaks down so they're covered with marinade. Cover the container airtight and place in refrigerator for 4 days, turning the rib-eyes each day.

When steaks are ready, turn grill to high and allow to get very hot. Reduce heat to medium-high. If cooking over charcoal or wood, allow enough time for the coals or wood to get "white hot," then spread the coals/wood evenly throughout the grill. Drain steaks from marinade. Place rib-eyes on the grill and cook to desired temperature, 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare.
