Grilled Bone-in Rib-eye Steak with Compound Butter

Here is the recipe that I use on a piece of bone-in rib eye with herb butter:

Ingredient lists:
  • 16 oz x 1 Rib-eye
  • 100g butter (70g compound butter + 30g basting)
  • 3 sprigs of chives or 2 sprigs of green onions
  • 1 sprig of thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Salt
  • Crushed Black Peppercorns
  • 30ml vegetable oil (15ml for marination + 15ml searing)

Steps/ Instruction:
  1. Pat dry the steak with a paper towel. In a mixing bowl, season generously with salt, black pepper, and vegetable oil. Mix it well. Store in fridge, covered.
  2. Make herb butter. Leave butter prior to room temp to soften. Finely chop green onions/chives, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. *you are welcome to grill these ingredients and throw in the blender.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix well with the herb ingredients with butter. Adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper. Store in fridge to harden the butter.
  4. Heat up a cast iron or stainless steel skillet on high-smoking heat. Rub with some vegetable oil. Sear the steak. Perform a diamond grill mark at 11 o'clock at one point, and flip towards 2 o'clock. Flip, repeat the process. Once reach to a desired temperature, or for me, 135F, remove the meat and rest (10 mins)
  5. Once well rest, cut on angle and serve on a hot plate or directly on a fancy cast iron pan. Perform a quennelle over wet, warm spoons on top of the meat. ENJOY!!
