Classic Steakhouse Ribeye


Classic Steakhouse Ribeye

For the herb butter:

2 tb softened butter

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1/2 tsp parsley, chopped

1/4 tsp thyme, chopped

1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Mix the garlic, parsley, thyme and crushed red pepper flakes with the butter in a small dish and set aside.

For the steak:

18 oz bone-in ribeye, roughly 1 inch in thickness

2 tsp olive oil plus 1 tb for the pan

1 tsp chopped thyme

1 tsp chopped parsley

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1 tsp kosher salt

For the cooking butter:

4 tb of butter, cut into 4 pads

8 sage leaves

5 sprigs thyme

1 sprig rosemary

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Drizzle the steak with 2 tsp of olive oil and coat both sides and the edges with the salt, pepper and herbs. Once the skillet is hot, add the remaining olive oil to it. Sear the steak on one side for 2 minutes. Lift the steak up with a pair of tongues and rest the edges of the steak on the hot pan for 15-20 seconds to sear and caramelize some of the fat.

Lay the steak back down into the pan on its uncooked side. Add the pads of butter to the hot pan. Place the herbs into the rapidly-melting butter. With a spoon, continually ladle the melted butter onto the steak. Cook this way for 2 minutes (for medium rare).

Remove the steak from the pan and place on a plate. While the steak is still hot, add at least half of the herb butter to the top of the steak. Tent the steak with foil and allow the meat to rest for 3-4 minutes.

Feel free to add a little more butter to the top of the steak prior to serving and enjoy while warm!

  1. We are about to try this tonight!! This is a little tricky for me…I’m no chef 🙂 And, we opted for 2 mid-sized bone-ins. Otherwise, it should be the same–steaks are resting…if you have any last minute suggestions, feel free!

    1. This is so exciting, Sherry! So long as the thickness of the steaks are about an inch, all elements of the recipe should work. One tip is to have the butter and herbs for basting ready to go. After you cook the steak on its first side, it’ll only be about 30 or so seconds of searing the edges before you’re cooking the steak on its other side. Other than that, I think you’re good to go! I’d love to see and hear how it all turns out!
