There is something glorious about cooking with a quality cut of meat! You don’t need to do anything fancy, you don’t need dozens of ingredients, etc… If it’s high quality meat, it will amaze all by itself.

I’ve recently been introduced to a company called Moink and y’all I think I found true love! Moink a fully customizable meat, poultry and fish subscription box service that provides pasture raised meats and wild caught fish delivered to your front door.

I grew up on a farm and it is like eating from my childhood when I cook these meats. First bite and suddenly I remembered just how good meat can actually taste. I love knowing that I’m supporting sustainable family farmers and that there are no colors, solutions, nitrates/nitrites or added sugars.

Y’all check them out because they are definitely worth the extra couple dollars: all Moink meat is antibiotic, steroid, and GMO-free…. and you can taste it!

For this recipe, there are a few important things to take note of:

  1. Your pan: If you can use a cast iron skillet, then please do so. However if that is not possible, then cut the amount of oil being called for in the recipe, down by half.
  2. Let your meat rest for fifteen minutes outside of the refrigerator before cooking. AND for 8-10 minutes before cutting, after you’ve cooked it. Resting is the key to beauty, even in flavor.
  3. Season your steak generously. This is such a simple recipe, calling for only a handful of ingredients. The salt and pepper combined with the butter we baste our steak with will create a crust that has great depth of flavor. Don’t fear the seasonings!
  4. For cooking this ribeye from start to finish: crush your garlic but don’t peel it entirely. This keeps it together in one piece and doesn’t let it’s raw flavor overpower any of the other ingredients.
  5. This is a recipe that takes less than 15 minutes to prepare. However, for best results, stay focused on it throughout the fifteen minutes. You won’t regret the time spent basting with butter.

Ribeye is a meat that is more filling and has great depth of flavor. I tend to pair it with lighter dishes, or one other comfort food and two light dishes. My absolute favorite thing to pair this recipe with is a simple dressing-less baby arugula salad. I plate the salad before I put the meat on the dish to rest. The drippings from the ribeye dress the salad and the flavor combination is out of this world!

Some other ideas include:

  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Garlic Smashed Potatoes
  • Creamed Corn
  • Herb Glazed Carrots or other herb glazed vegetables
  • Broccoli or Broccoli Salad

  • I made the Rib Eye in my skillet before seeing this recipe. It was excellent. Hubby approved! It was large enough to split which is good for us retirees. Thank you
