Servings 4 people


  • 2 Ribeye Steaks 1.5" thick, bone-in
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Thyme dried
  • 1 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder


  • 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.


Recipe notes:
***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.
