Servings 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 inch ribeye steak
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chili seasoning or steak seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • First, salt the steak on both sides and put the steak in the fridge uncovered overnight. This step is optional but seasons the entire steak not just the outside. This makes a world of difference in flavor.
  • Second, put the steak on a sheet pan with a wire rack and season both sides of the steak with a teaspoon of salt, pepper, and chili seasoning.
  • Now, put the steak in the oven for 2 hours on the middle rack.
  • Next, heat the cast iron pan on a medium high heat with oil and butter. When the cast iron pan is super hot add the steak. Cook 2 minutes per side to sear the outside.
  • Finally, let the steak rest 10 minutes and then enjoy!
