Cast Iron Ribeye
- Tablespoon or Metal Serving Spoon
- Cast Iron Skillet
- 1/4 stick Butter
- 1 bundle Rosemary
- 1 bundle Thyme
- 1 head Garlic
- 2 stalks Scallion chopped
- 14 oz Classic Cut Ribeye
- Preheat the skillet to a medium-low heat. (Remember, we only need 325F to achieve the caramelize the steak, so no need to smoke out the whole house)
- Season steak, chop scallions and cut the head of garlic in half across the cloves while the skillet is warming.
- Add butter to pan and melt. When melted, add the aromatics, and give them a minute or two to incorporate into the butter. Move aromatics to the edge of the pan and add the ribeye to the pan. Allow it to remain in one spot until it is completely seared, it should release from the pan with little effort when it is ready. Flip the steak over and repeat, except this time, tip the pan so the butter pools in one edge with the aromatics, then use the spoon to baste this liquid over the steak repeatedly.
- Cook to the desired internal temperature. (See the chart below for reference) Remove from pan and rest for AT LEAST 5 minutes, 10 is better, before serving. Serve with a strong Cabernet or Scottish Wee Heavy.
