This tequila-lime and herb cutting board sauce is the perfect compliment to tender, grass-fed ribeye. The beauty of a cutting board sauce is that the pan-seared ribeye rests on a herbaceous and zesty sauce bed, slowly dripping warm steak jus throughout the sauce. Everything is sliced and served on the same board making for a real show stopper. 


  • Grass Fed Ribeye
  • 1/2 bunch chopped parsley
  • 1/2 bunch chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 bunch sliced green onions
  • 1/2 finely chopped red pepper
  • 1 large lime (zest and juice)
  • 1 splash of your favorite tequila (can omit to keep alcohol-free)
  • 1 splash of champagne or white wine vinegar
  • 1 splash of extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste (start with 1 tsp of salt and ½ tsp of pepper)
  • Pinch of red chili flakes



1) Combine ingredients and spread over a cutting board with an edge "trench"


1) Season steak with salt and pepper or your favorite steak rub.

2) Pan-sear or grill your ribeye over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes a side until you hit an internal temperature of 10 degrees Fahrenheit below your desired finished temperature. Using a meat thermometer will give you the most accurate results.

3) Let the ribeye rest on your cutting board sauce for 5-10 minutes to let the steak juices mingle with your sauce.

4) Slice and toss the ribeye in the sauce and serve family style.
