Restaurant-Style Steaks

Prep Time 30 mins
Servings 2


  • 2 - 10-12 ounce ribeye steaks 1-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Steak seasoning like Montreal Steak


  • Bring your steaks to room temperature by setting out of the fridge about 30 minutes before preheating the oven.
  • Place your cast iron skillet in a cold oven and preheat it to the highest temperature. My oven goes to 550 degrees.
  • Season your steaks to your liking. I like to use Montreal Steak seasoning.
  • When the oven and your skillet reach temperature, remove the skillet from the oven and melt two tablespoons of butter in the skillet.
  • Add the steaks, seasoned side down and place the skillet into the hot oven.
  • Set the timer for three minutes.
  • Flip the steaks and cook for three minutes more.
  • Remove the skillet and test your steaks for desired doneness by using a meat thermometer.  Return the steaks to the oven for one minute increments until the desired temperature is reached.
  • Allow the steaks to rest at least ten minutes before serving.
