Garlic Butter Ribeye Steak Recipe

Indulge in the rich flavors of a perfectly seared ribeye steak bathed in a luscious garlic butter sauce. This savory steak recipe promises to elevate your dining experience to new heights.


  • 2 boneless ribeye steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. Remove the ribeye steaks from the refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. This allows for more even cooking.
  2. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Season both sides generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant, being careful not to burn it. Remove the garlic butter from the heat and set aside.
  4. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over high heat. Add the olive oil and heat until shimmering but not smoking.
  5. Carefully place the seasoned ribeye steaks in the hot skillet. Cook for 4-5 minutes on the first side without moving them to allow for a nice sear.
  6. Flip the steaks using tongs and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust cooking time according to your desired level of doneness.
  7. During the last minute of cooking, spoon the garlic butter over the steaks, allowing it to melt and coat the surface.
  8. Remove the steaks from the skillet and transfer them to a cutting board. Let them rest for 5 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
  9. Slice the ribeye steaks against the grain into thin strips. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
  10. Serve the garlic butter ribeye steaks hot and enjoy the succulent flavors with your favorite sides like roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes. Bon appétit!
