Pan Fried Ribeye

That's right.  I ate the whole thing.  
Awesome boyfriend and I love steaks.  We cook them on the grill, we cook them in the oven under the broiler, we slice them up and toss them in stir fry- I could go on and on.  We are beef people.  There's no two ways about it.

One of my favorite ways to cook a steak is to pan fry it with lots of butter.  To me, the best cut for this is a ribeye.  The ribeye has enough fat that you don't have to worry about it sticking to the pan, or drying out while it cooks.

1 ribeye steak (look for one with fat marbled throughout)
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 1/2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Use a fork to poke small holes in steak on both sides.  This will help the steak absorb spices.  
  2. Season steak on both sides with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.  
  3. Drizzle Worcestershire sauce over top of steak and let sit for at least 10 minutes.  
  4. Melt coconut oil in a pan over medium high.  
  5. Once coconut oil is melted, add 1 Tbsp butter and melt.  
  6. After butter and coconut oil have combined and pan is hot, add seasoned ribeye to pan.  
  7. Cook for 2 minutes on each side.  
  8. After ribeye is finished cooking, remove from heat and place on a paper towel for 2 minutes to drain.  
  9. Transfer to plate to serve.  Top with remaining butter.

  1. Rib-eye’s my favorite steak cut too! Eating it is no hassle, unlike cuts that still has bones in it. You can enjoy eating rib-eye up to the very last bite. I actually like mine charcoal-grilled and cooked medium-rare. Having it well-done would make it harder to bite.

    1. I agree. I'm not a huge fan of bone in steaks. I cook on the grill in the summer a lot, but I like to do a stove top steak in the winter because sometimes I don't want to go outside! You can use this marinade on a grill as well. Just toss the steak in the bag for an hour or so and put it straight on the grill over medium heat.

  2. It’s nice that you and your boyfriend have the same food interest. That’s actually a big deal for me since my partner doesn’t love beef at all. :) Anyway, I just love the fact that he never told me not to eat beef and he sometimes gives it a taste, especially when I was the one who prepared his food. Isn’t that cute? :)

  3. It does make it easier. I always tell people that it's important to have a good support system at home.
