Pepper-Crusted Ribeye with Garlic-Thyme Butter
Prep: 10 minutes plus standing
Cook: 12 minutes • Serves: 4
1 garlic clove, minced
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1-1/2 tablespoons Montreal steak seasoning
1/2 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
1. Let steaks stand at room temperature 30 minutes. In small bowl, stir garlic, butter and thyme. In separate small bowl, stir seasoning and pepper. Makes about 1/4 cup butter mixture and 2 tablespoons seasoning mixture.
2. Heat cast-iron skillet over high heat 2 minutes or until very hot. Sprinkle steaks with seasoning mixture and add to skillet; cook 12 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135° for medium-rare, turning frequently to achieve an even crust on outside of steaks. Transfer steaks to cutting board; tent with aluminum foil and let stand 5 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise to 145° upon standing.)
3. Remove bone from steaks and discard; slice against the grain and serve topped with butter mixture.
