This Rib Eye Steak recipes stuffed with Zesty Crabmeat

There really isn't much new out there when you're searching for different types of Rib Eye steak recipes, maybe a twist on a steak marinade recipe or a different type of steak dry rub.

That's why I'm so excited to offer this very new and very unique crab stuffed rib eye recipe.

To be honest it wasn't really amazing planning on my part, I was actually looking at different crabmeat appetizer recipes when I wondered what they would taste like inside a grilled rib eye.

As far as unique recipes go this one is pretty easy to put together, about 5 minutes to prepare and then another 8 or 10 minutes to cook.

This is almost like our Steak Oscar recipe - except all the goodies are tucked safely inside the rib eye steak instead of served on top.

It really is just like Surf & Turf all in one neat package.

Serves: 2

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

Direct Heat: 550F

What you'll need:

  • 2 boneless Rib Eye Steaks (at least 1" thick)

  • 1 can crabmeat, drained
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • crushed black peppercorns

  • 1 package Bernaise sauce mix (optional)

    how to make lemon mayonnaise

    Step 1:
    In a small bowl make the lemon mayonnaise by combining 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise with the juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon.

    Mix well and set aside.

    crabmeat stuffing

    In a medium glass bowl combine the crabmeat, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and cilantro.

    Stir in the lemon mayonnaise and mix well so the crabmeat stuffing ingredients are well combined.

    Cover and set aside.

    how to stuff a steak

    Step 2:
    Lay the rib eye steaks flat on a cutting board and very carefully slice a pocket in the center of each rib eye with a sharp knife.

    You don't want the knife to cut all the way through to the other side or through the top or bottom of the steak.

    If it does, it's not the end of the world - the stuffing is thick enough most of it will stay inside the steak while grilling.

    crab stuffed steak recipe

    Spoon 1/2 the crabmeat stuffing into one of the rib eye steaks and 1/2 into the other steak.

    I don't usually fasten the opening in the steak closed but if you want to just thread a toothpick through the steak to close it.

    how to grill rib eye steaks

    Rub each side of the rib eye steaks with olive oil and then rub the crushed peppercorns over each side.

    Cover and set aside.

    Preheat your grill for 550F direct heat.

    Step 3:
    When the BBQ has reached temperature place the rib eye very carefully (so the innards don't come out) on the hot grates and close the lid.

    recipes for steak

    After 4 - 5 minutes very carefully flip the rib eye steaks over using a spatula.

    Do this carefully so the crabmeat stuffing doesn't come out.

    Close the lid and cook another 4 - 5 minutes for medium-rare.

    When cooked, remove the steaks to a serving platter, cover and let rest 5 minutes before serving.

    Serve with our garlic infused baked potato recipe and this tender prosciutto wrapped grilled asparagus recipe.

    Drizzle with Bernaise sauce (optional).
