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.

How to Make CAST-IRON RIBEYES

Step-by-Step

  1. Place steaks on a plate or platter.
  2. In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Sprinkle mixture over both sides of steaks; set steaks aside, uncovered, at room temperature for 1/'2 hr.
  4. Pour oil in a large cast-iron skillet, add butter and turn heat on to medium-high.
  5. When skillet is hot, but not smoking, add both steaks; cook, undisturbed for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes; flip steaks over, reduce heat to medium/medium-low and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes; remove steaks from skillet to warm serving plate and cover with foil. Allow to rest for 2 or 3 minutes before slicing. Serve with the following sauce, if desired.
  6. For pan sauce, add up to 1/4 cup dry red wine or water to juices in skillet; stir and bring to simmer; remove from heat; stir 1 tablespoon butter into sauce; taste sauce and adjust seasoning as needed. (NOTE: If skillet was too hot while cooking steaks, the sauce may be too bitter to use.)
