We’ve been making this recipe Rib Eye Steaks – or variations of it – for such a long time that I don’t even remember where I got it from… all I know is that it gets everyone licking their fingers every time!

I bet it will become one of your family favourites too being so easy to make!


  • Two 1 1/4-pound (550g), bone-in Rib Eye Steaks (try our dry aged selection for an even more indulgent meal)
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 rosemary sprig
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Season the Rib Eye Steaks all over with salt and freshly ground pepper. Let the meat stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the canola oil until shimmering. Add the steaks and cook over high heat until crusty on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn the steaks and add the butter, thyme, garlic and rosemary to the skillet.
  3. Cook over high heat, basting the Rib Eye Steaks with the melted butter, garlic and herbs, until the steaks are medium-rare, 5 to 7 minutes longer.
  4. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut the steaks off the bone, then slice the meat across the grain and serve.
  5. Serve with a local craft beer or his favourite red wine – a Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect pairing -and don’t forget to share your photos and tag us!
