Oven Ribeye Steak– Crusty, tender and delicious bone-in ribeye steaks seared on a cast iron skillet and finished in the oven. This is how you cook a tender and juicy ribeye steak in the oven!
You may also use a New York steak in this recipe if you prefer. Searing the steak in a cast iron skillet prior to cooking it in the oven gives it a super flavorful crusted outside.
Serve steaks with creamy mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, veggies a side salad and more. We served ours with a hot baked potato and a side caesar salad with garlic bread. I will link some of my favorite side dishes to serve with this recipe for you below.
This recipe calls for two generous sized Ribeye Steaks, about a pound each. So, this recipe serves about four people. If you are cooking for a large crowd, simply double the recipe.
What tools do I need to make a Ribeye Steak in the oven?
- Cast Iron Skillet – You’ll need a cast iron skillet to sear your steak prior to placing in the oven.
- Tongs – To turn your steak over.
- Measuring Spoons – For properly measuring ingredients for this recipe.
- Meat Thermometer – To check the temperature of your steak to ensure doneness.
Here are the ingredients you need for this recipe:
Ribeye Steaks (1.5″ thick, bone-in or boneless) – You may also use a New York steak.
Olive oil – You can also use canola, vegetable or avocado oil.
Thyme – I used dried thyme in this recipe, you can also use fresh, just double the amount.
Brown Sugar – You can use light or dark brown sugar.
Salt – I almost always use sea salt in my recipes but you can use any salt you have on hand.
Pepper – I always fresh cracked black pepper but you can also use ground black pepper.
Garlic – I used ground garlic powder in this recipe. Do not use garlic salt or your steak may turn out too salty.
Butter – You can use salted or unsalted butter in this recipe.
How to cook a Ribeye Steak in the oven:
Pull steaks out of the fridge about 30 minutes to 1 hour before cooking.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a bowl, combine dry seasonings. Pat dry steaks and rub all sides with the seasoning mixture.
Heat a cast iron skillet to high heat. Once the skillet is very hot, carefully add 1-2 tablespoons olive oil. Sear steaks for 30 seconds on each side. The steak will develop a nice crust.
Place a 1/2 tbsp slice of butter on top of each steak and immediately transfer to the oven. Cook for about 10-12 minutes. Using a meat thermometer, check the temperature of the center of the steak. When the internal temperature reaches 125 degrees, pull steak out of the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice and serve with your favorite side dishes.
***125 degree internal temperature will give you a medium-rare steak. If you like your steak cooked longer, leave until internal temp is 135 degrees for medium and 145 degrees for medium well.
***My steaks were about 1 lb. each.
Side dishes to serve with your steak:
Creamy Mashed Potatoes – Easy, creamy, buttery mashed potatoes sprinkled with fresh parsley. When it comes to mashed potatoes, the more butter the better!
Scalloped Potatoes – Thinly sliced potatoes layered in a creamy sauce with cheddar cheese baked to a golden perfection. I absolutely love this classic potato side dish recipe!
Sauteed Brussels Sweet Potato Bacon Cranberries – Sautéed brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes tossed with crispy bacon, sweet cranberries and toasted pine nuts.
Baked Macaroni and Cheese – The creamiest, cheesiest mac and cheese baked to a golden perfection! What could be better? This baked macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. It goes great by itself or as a side dish!
