Servings: 2 steaks


  • 2 ribeye steaks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


Prepare Steaks

  • Salt both sides of steak, place on rack and put in refrigerator for a few hours up to overnight.
    If you don't have time, do this at least 45 minutes.

Cook Steaks

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Turn heat on medium high heat and get cast iron pan very hot, prior to adding oil.
  • Add oil and wait about 1 minute. Add steaks. Steaks must be dry and cold.
  • Use a grill press if you have one. The press keeps the steak on the pan evenly.
  • Sear for about 3 minutes. The steak should easily move. If not give it another minute.
  • Test with an instant read thermometer which will help gage how much time you need in oven. You will want the final temperature to be 130 degrees F.
  • Once seared, turn over and place in oven. Cook to 130 degrees F. for medium rare.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Allow to rest for 7 minutes, before cutting.
