(Fully Marinated Australian Rib Eye Pan Grilled To Satiety) 
Staying in a condo with quite small kitchen sometimes
presents asymmetrical ease more so when grill-time comes.
Expecting for friends’ visit, my daughter allowed me to do the main.
Dashed to Tiong Bahru Public Market (30 Seng Poh Road, Singapore),
my favorite spot when cooking special preps necessitates.
Got myself 2.5 kilos of Australian rib eye, sliced ¾ to an inch thick. Perfect.
Hustle comes to fore during pan grilling as smoke will surely fill the entirety
of the kitchen or the unit itself.
And having beef done at ground floor poolside-grill area was a no no.
It was drizzling.
In view, I need to marinate beef in spices-herbs combi with enzyme tenderizer
to minimize cook-time but ensuring thereby tenderness and juicier bite.
Okay. Let’s do it.

Prep time: 3.5 hours
Cook time: 1 hour
Total time: 4.5 hours

2.5 kilos rib eye sliced ¾” to 1 inch thick

5 grams ground black pepper
4 grams nutmeg powder
