Ribeye Steak

Recently I was in the mood for a good steak and since it was on sale, I decided to pick some up.  People tend to get intimidated and think that the only way to get a good steak is to visit your local steakhouse but in reality all that’s needed is a cast iron skillet, steak seasoning, a trace amount of grapeseed oil, and some butter to top it off!  Follow these steps for a great steak that will be on par with any five star steakhouse but only cost you a fraction of the price!

  1. Heavily season the steak as you see fit.  You can use a store brand seasoning or you can create our own by blending salt, pepper, oregano, etc.
  2. Start heating our cast iron skillet and after one minute, pour a small amount of grapeseed oil that’s enough to cover the surface of the skillet.
  3. Wait until the oil starts to smoke and immediately place your steak in the center of the skillet.
  4. Cook the steak for 4 minutes on one side and then flip it over.
  5. Continue cooking the steak for an additional 2 minutes.  At this point, add 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet and use a spoon to gather the melted butter and pour over the steak for 1 minute.
  6. Pick up the steak and sear all edges before removing (approx. 15 seconds).
  7. Let the steak sit for 10 minutes which will allow for the juices to abosrb back into the meat
  8. Serve and enjoy!
