Anyway, let's get to the meat. Ribeye steaks are fatty. Now, don't freak out and bail on the blog. Fat = Flavor! And one ribeye, when it happens to be on sale, is not going to kill you. In fact, it will delight you. And even more delightful, it only takes a few minutes to make. I like mine with mushrooms and onions. If that sounds good to you, pan roast yourself a ribeye steak with onions and mushrooms like this:
1. Slice up an onion and an equal amount if mushrooms.
2. Heat a metal handled frying pan on your stove on medium high. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
3. Pour enough olive oil in the pan to cover the bottom. (Probably about two circles around the pan.)
4. When the oil is hot, add your mushrooms and onions. Lightly brown them. (About five minutes.) Add salt and pepper.
5. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
6. Next salt and pepper your steak. Then add it to the pan. Sear one side. It should take about four minutes.
7. When the downside is gorgeously browned, flip it over. If you have rosemary or another favorite woody herb, sprinkle some on top.
8. Pour the mushrooms and onions over the steak and put the pan in the oven for about five minutes for medium.
9. Remove the steak from the oven. BE CAREFUL. THE METAL HANDLE WILL BE BLAZING HOT. USE OVEN MITTS!
10. Plate the food. Let the steak rest for five minutes before cutting into it.
This is my favorite steak because it's flavorful and I get to gnaw on the bone. What's your favorite kind of steak? Why?
