How to Make Ribeye Steak

  1. Prepare the Steak:
    • Take the steak out of the refrigerator at least half an hour before cooking to allow it to reach room temperature. This ensures the steak cooks evenly.
    • Generously season the steak with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper on both sides.
  2. Cooking the Steak:
    • Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Ensure the pan is large enough to comfortably fit the steak. If cooking two steaks, use two pans and heat them simultaneously.
    • Add the steak to the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Adjust the time based on the steak’s thickness and your preferred doneness. As a guideline, a 3cm thick steak should be cooked for about 5 minutes in total.
    • For precise doneness, use a meat thermometer:
      • Rare: 50°C (122°F)
      • Medium: 60°C (140°F)
      • Well done: 70°C (158°F)
  3. Adding Flavor:
    • In the last minute of cooking, add 50g of butter, 2 sprigs of thyme, and 1 clove of crushed garlic (with skin) to the pan.
    • Baste the steak with the melted butter and aromatics for enhanced flavor.
  4. Resting the Steak:
    • Once cooked to your desired doneness, remove the steak from the pan and let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the steak, ensuring a juicy and flavorful bite.
