Sometimes, simple is best. This is our favorite way to cook good ribeye steaks. As always, use the best quality steaks that you can afford.
I apologize for the poor photos, but the steaks were devoured as soon as they came out of the skillet! Oh, man, they were so good! I'll try to add a "pretty" photo the next time that I make them.
