Michael Symon's Pan Roasted Rib Eye

Helpful Tips: 1. Use whatever spices you like for the dry rub. If you make too much of it, you can save it for future use. 2. You can salt and rub your steak the night before you cook it. If you want to get your steak ready fast, set your oven to 375 to 400 degrees to finish it off. If you have more time, you can set it to 200 and finish it more slowly. Use a meat thermometer to ensure you cook it to the right temperature. 3. In a rib eye, there is a part of meat called the deckle that has a thick strip of fat. It is often thrown out but Michael recommends eating this part of your steak, which is packed with incredible flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2

    Ribeye steaks (2" thickness)

  • 1

    tablespoon Kosher Salt

  • 1

    tablespoon ground Coriander

  • 1

    tablespoon ground Cumin

  • 1

    tablespoon Paprika

  • 1

    tablespoon Tumeric

  • 1

    tablespoon Chipotle Powder

  • 2

    tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 2

    medium Shallots (skin on; quartered)

  • 4

    cloves Garlic (skin on; smashed)

  • small bundle Thyme

  • 2

    tablespoons Unsalted Butter

Directions

Remove your steaks from the fridge 30 minutes prior to cooking them to take the chill off. Mix together the salt, coriander, cumin, paprika, turmeric and chipotle powder and season the steaks liberally on both sides. Preheat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil along with all four ribeyes and cook until they are very dark golden brown on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. When the steaks have a nice crust on them, flip and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, then add the shallots and garlic with the thyme. Add the butter and begin to baste the steaks, letting everything pan roast together. Continue to baste the steaks until they are cooked to your preference. By now they should be medium rare and can be removed to a plate to rest for 5 minutes. Slice and serve. If you would like your steaks cooked a little longer, for medium or medium-well, finish them in a 400 degree oven until steaks reach desired temperature, remembering that they will carry over an additional 5 to 10 degrees while resting.
