Well since you overcooked your ribeye the only thing left to do is eat it. Maybe caramelize some onions to serve with the steak and/or sprinkle with lots of herbs. If you pan fried it you can make a gravy/au jus. My great aunt used to put butter on her steak(which she liked well done). It added a sweetness to the meat. Mushroom would be nice with the steak. You might end up making the ribeye a side to a wonderful vegetable recipe.

Perhaps you can give up on it as a steak and chop it into a salad...

I thought about that, but ribeyes have so much fat. You're right, though...a nice marinade would solve/hide the flavor of well done.

"Overcooked" is quite a loaded term. If you've cooked via whatever method you have chosen, then permitted it to rest (covered, of course) for a requisite amount of time (perhaps five to seven minutes), and then have discovered that it is beyond the proverbial your preferred degree of doneness (and you have not told us what that is), yet still have time to post a question as to how to rescue it, well, it sounds as though you realize that you are squarely positioned behind the 8 ball. The idea of very thinly slicing it, then tossing it with salad greens dressed with perhaps a cumin and lime vinaigrette sounds quite appealing. And it might be a good idea to make a personal note not to repeat the same error with such a fine steak for which you probably had greater plans.

Stir fry
And don't watch TV while you're cooking next time!

Slice thinly and make a steak sandwich with grilled onions, some cheese, on good bread. If you're feeling like more, top with lettuce, tomato slices, and a good smear of mayo and mustard.

Following on HalfPint's suggestion you could turn into Philly Cheese steak; slice it super thin, throw it on the griddle, slap it on a bun with carmelized onions and yes, Cheeze Whiz right out of the can. Disgustingly good.

If you're a hash type of person, use it with that. Agree with Dymnyno - use it any which way!

Smother with hollandaise or pepper corn sauce. Slice and serve on a salad. Simple, easy-peasy.
