  • 2- pound bone in ribeye steak
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 4 smashed garlic cloves
  • 8 to 10 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 3 to 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • ½ peeled and small diced shallots
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of peppercorns
  • 1/3 cup of good whiskey
  • ¾ cup of heavy whipping cream
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


  • Season the steak generously on all sides with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Next heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and then pour in the olive oil. Once the oil starts to lightly smoke add in the ribeye and sear.
  • Next, add 4 tablespoons of butter, garlic and fresh herbs to the pan and to the best of your ability rub the teak with them.
  • Turn the steak over once it is golden brown on the one side and then baste the steak repeatedly with the butter, garlic and herbs and cook it until they desired internal temperature is achieved. It will take about 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium rare. Rest the steak on a cutting board for 2 to 3 minutes before slicing it.
  • Add the remaining butter to the pan along with the shallots and peppercorns and cook until the shallots are lightly browned, about 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Next deglaze with the whiskey and cook it until it’s almost gone and then add in the cream and cook that until it becomes very thick, think Alfredo sauce. Season the sauce with salt.
  • Pour the sauce over the sliced ribeye.
