  • 1 (24-ounce) bone-in ribeye steak, 2-inch-thick, at room temperature
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp Canola oil
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves  garlic, smashed
  • 3 a small shoot fresh thyme
  • 2 a small shoot  fresh rosemary


  • Using paper towels, pat both sides of the steak dry; season generously with 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  • Heat a medium cast iron skillet over medium high heat until very hot, about 1-2 minutes; add canola oil.
  • Place the steak in the middle of the skillet and cook, turning every 2-3 minutes, until a dark crust has formed on both sides, about 12-14 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium low. Push steak to one side of the skillet; add butter, garlic, thyme and rosemary to opposite side of the skillet, tilting the skillet towards the butter and cooking until butter is foaming, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Working carefully, spoon butter over steak for 1-2 minutes, turning over once, until it reaches an internal temperature of 120 degrees F for medium rare, or until desired doneness. Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve immediately.
