“This makes an amazing rib eye! Please note that these directions are for one steak. I did four steaks and had to add 3 minutes per side in the oven - but my oven is also not working well so it might not have been to 500.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 boneless rib eye steak, 1 1/2-inch thick
  • canola oil, to coat
  • kosher salt & fresh ground pepper

Directions

  1. Place 10 to 12-inch cast iron skillet in oven and heat oven to 500 degrees. Bring steak(s) to room temperature.
  2. When oven reaches temperature, remove pan and place on range over high heat. Coat steak lightly with oil and season both sides with a generous pinch of salt. Grind on black pepper to taste.
  3. Immediately place steak in the middle of hot, dry pan. Cook 30 seconds without moving. Turn with tongs and cook another 30 seconds, then put the pan straight into the oven for 2 minutes. Flip steak and cook for another 2 minutes. (This time is for medium rare steaks. If you prefer medium, add a minute to both of the oven turns.).
  4. Remove steak from pan, cover loosely with foil, and rest for 2 minutes. Serve whole or slice thin and fan onto plate.
