Rib-eye steak HELP!!

I bought 2 beautiful 1 1/2 lb. rib-eye steaks on a wim. I couldn't resist. Now I need suggestions as to what to do with them. I say a show about Philly Cheese Steaks, they said they used thinly sliced rib-eye. My question would be which way do I slice them, end to end or across the large surface?

just grill 'em as is, with a bit of salt and pepper; med rare. Serve with something simple that you like: baked potato, salad, cheesey bread, beans, pilaf, etc...

Not sure if you want to go with the grain or against, or if it really matters on a ribeye.

Either way put them in the freezer for a little before slicing, makes it much easier!

that would be my choice, serve something less expensive on steak sandwich.

Rib eye is too yummy not to be savored as is IMO. Toss it on the BBQ for a few minutes and enjoy it like that. Mmmmmmm. Sooo envious Patty!

Dry brine it and slap in on the grill for no more than med-rare. Eat as is. Like Alix said,rib eye is too good to do any other way.

Slice it end to end, across the grain.
Ribeye is a great cut to use for Philly Cheese Steaks.
It is also superb as spicy sweet Korean Bulgogi.
Ain't a waste to experience rib eye other than au natural!!!! :)

GB, how does one go about dry brining??? I've heard this can take a so-so piece of meat, and make it spectacular... So do tell...

Thank you. This is what I was looking for. I think I left a word out of my o/p. It should have read 1 1/2 lbs each!!! Way too much meat for me. I did have the Cheese Steaks in mind when I bought it. I should really not be allowed to shop. I wasn't even hungry, but they looked sooo good. We really need online grocery shopping here. It was on a whim and money spent I really could not afford. But what is done is done. So I want to make the most of it.
Keep your ideas coming!
