Believe it or not, there’s not much to cooking a great steak! A ribeye is a beautiful cut of meat with marbling that creates the mouthwatering steakhouse flavor we know and crave.

Broiled Skillet Ribeye

Thankfully, a ribeye is just as easy to serve as it is to cook. I consider myself a traditionalist, so all that’s needed for the ultimate steak dinner is a nice minimal seasoning, a side of vegetables and a warm potato mash. It doesn’t get easier than that!

Broiled Skillet Ribeyes

Broiled Skillet Ribeyes


  • 2 ribeyes, 1 1/2 - 2 inch thick
  • 4 Roma tomatoes (halved) or 2 beefsteak tomatoes (quartered)
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • Canola oil
  • Herb butter, for serving
  • Mashed potatoes, if desired


  1. Wrap ribeyes in paper towels and place on a platter to rest in the refrigerator. This will allow the outer layer of the ribeyes to dry before grilling.
  2. Preheat the oven to 500°F. Place a dry cast-iron skillet in the oven as it warms.
  3. Once the oven is preheated, remove the skillet (be sure to wear oven mitts) and place on the stove over high heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the steaks from the fridge and rub with canola oil, salt and pepper on all sides.
  5. After 5 minutes, sear the ribeyes for 30 seconds on each side to get a sear.
  6. Place the skillet in the oven and cook for 2.5 minutes on each side, depending on your preference for doneness. I prefer medium.
  7. Remove the steaks and allow to rest for 3 minutes on a plate before slicing. Top with your favorite herb butter.
  8. Coat the tomatoes in olive oil, salt and pepper and grill in a cast-iron skillet over high heat, about 7 minutes per side. Serve alongside the steaks with your favorite mashed potatoes, if desired.
