Juicy Ribeye Steak with Garlic Herb Butter


  • 2 ribeye steaks (about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped


  1. Remove the ribeye steaks from the refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking. This ensures even cooking.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  3. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels. Rub both sides of each steak with olive oil, then season generously with salt and black pepper.
  4. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat until very hot. Place the steaks in the skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until a golden-brown crust forms.
  5. Add the minced garlic, unsalted butter, rosemary, and thyme to the skillet. Tilt the skillet slightly and use a spoon to baste the steaks with the melted butter and herbs.
  6. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and cook for an additional 4-6 minutes for medium-rare, or longer if desired.
  7. Remove the skillet from the oven and transfer the steaks to a cutting board. Let the steaks rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  8. Serve the ribeye steaks with the garlic herb butter drizzled on top.
