  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 2 Ribeye Steaks
  • 4-5 springs rosemary
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 5 cloves garlic


  • Leave steaks at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before preparing or cooking it. Use this time to prepare your cast iron skillet. Place it a hot oven to get it very very hot.
  • Once steaks have come to room temperature, pat the steaks dry with paper towels.
  • Generously, season the steaks on both sides with the salt and pepper.
  • Place pan cast iron skillet or stainless steel pan, over medium-high heat until it’s VERY hot.
  • Add the oil to the pan and heat until it begins to shimmer and move easily around the pan, about 1 minute or so.
  • Carefully place the steaks in the pan away from you so oil doesn’t platter in your direction. If you hear sizzle after you place your steak in the pan, that’s a great thing. It means that your pan was hot enough for pan searing restaurant style steak.
  • Avoid flipping steaks to early or fiddling with them. After about 3-4 minutes or until a deep golden crust forms, flip the steak over to the other side.
  • During the last minute or two of cooking your steaks, add the butter , garlic, and rosemary sprigs to the pan with the steaks. Using a spoon, scoop melted butter over steaks.
  • Once desired doneness is reached, transfer onto a place, cover with aluminum foil and let it sit 5-10 minutes before cutting. This will ensure the juices don’t leak out and dry out your steak.
