Ribeye Steak & WLS

Steak has been a food that is not common for me to eat since my weight loss surgery.  I love steaks, especially ribeye. I had purchased a grass-fed ribeye at Whole Foods, and was excited to cook it.  This is my favorite way (well, maybe tied with grilling).

Heat a tablespoon of oil in an iron skillet (this one is from my Mom, and has cooked many a dish in i t).

Bring the ribeye to room temperature, and pat dry with paper towels.

I seasoned it with McCormick Season Salt, and ground pepper on bot sides.

Place in the hot skillet.  Cook (without turning for 3-4 minutes) until it has a good sear.

For my sanity, I use a splatter cover.  

Turn, and cook another 3-4 minutes or until medium rare.  (Depending on the thickness of your steak it could take less or more time.)

Once done, you MUST rest your steak.  I place mine on a cutting board, and cover with aluminum foil to keep in the heat.

After resting for about 10 minutes, I slice against the grain.

It is extremely juicy, and cooked just the way I love it.

I didn’t eat the fat (but the fat is rendered), and made sauteed spinach as my side.  It was juicy, full of flavor, and perfect.

I only had about 3 ounces due to I really shouldn’t have red meat (harder to process with my sleeve).  So I have enough for 4 meals with this one steak.  Perfect.
