Broiling rib eye steak in the oven with a glass dish takes a bit of finesse. Cooking with glass cookware means that you need to adjust your cooking time to compensate for the time it takes glass to heat to the correct temperature. Glass is a good conductor of heat, and when it reaches the desired temperature, it keeps the heat evenly distributed.
Combine the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl. Add the lemon zest as you mix the marinade.
Submerge the rib eye steak in the marinade, and seal tightly with aluminum foil.
Place the bowl with the marinating steak in the refrigerator for four to six hours. You can marinade the steak overnight if you are planning dinner for the next day.
Preheat your oven to the high-broil setting. Slide the large baking sheet on the top rack of the oven, just under the broiler.
Rub the olive oil on both sides of the steak. Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer the steak to the glass baking dish. Make sure the steak is in the center of the dish to allow the heat to broil all surfaces of the meat evenly.
Slide the glass baking dish into the oven on the rack beneath the large baking sheet. The baking sheet will spread the heat over the entire steak and cook with even distribution. Monitor the steak as it broils for five minutes. Turn the steak to cook on the reverse side for an additional five minutes.
Slide the baking sheet out after the steak has broiled for 10 minutes in this manner. Transfer the glass-baking dish to the top rack of the oven and allow the steak to broil for an additional five minutes under direct heat.
