Whenever grocery stores have a sale on rib-eye, my husband and I stock up like there’s no tomorrow. We vacuum seal the steaks and freeze them for later. Since rib eye is a pricier cut of beef, we like to enjoy it to its fullest. My favorite way to prepare a good steak is by grilling it. Since it’s still winter, no one is going to be doing any grilling around here. Therefore, I rely on my cast iron pan and oven to satisfy my craving for a good juicy steak. You don’t need any skills or huge list of ingredients for this recipe. It’s as simple as steak, oil, garlic, seasoning, and tiny bit of butter (for flavor). The cooking time may vary depending on each oven and size of steak. My steaks were a little over 1 inch thick. 8 minutes in the oven got me a perfect medium well steak. If you prefer your steak a little more rare, cook it for less than 8 minutes.
