  • Alternative ingredients: Swap ribeye for flank steak or go vegan with portobello mushrooms.
  • Garnishing options: Sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles, walnuts, or sliced avocado for extra flair.
  • Cooking tips: Let the steak rest before slicing to lock in juices. Use a meat thermometer for precise doneness.
