  • 2 rib-eye steaks (each about 200g and 2cm thick)
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tbsp (25g) butter
  • 1 garlic clove (left whole but lightly crushed)
  • Thyme (optional)


  1. Season the Steaks:
    • Up to 8 hours before cooking, pat the steaks dry with kitchen paper and season with salt and pepper. Store in the fridge until about 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Prepare the Pan:
    • Heat the oil over high heat in a heavy-based frying pan that can comfortably fit both steaks. When the oil is shimmering, reduce the heat to medium-high and add the butter.
  3. Cook the Steaks:
    • Once the butter is sizzling, carefully place the steaks in the pan, tucking the garlic and optional thyme at the sides.
    • Sear and turn the steaks every 30 seconds to 1 minute, aiming for a total of 4 minutes for rare, 5-6 minutes for medium, and 8-10 minutes for well done. Use a digital cooking thermometer for precise temperatures: 50°C for rare, 60°C for medium, and 70°C for well done.
  4. Rest and Serve:
    • Remove the steaks from the pan and let them rest for at least 5 minutes on a warm plate or board, loosely covered with foil to retain heat and moisture.
  5. Serve:
    • After resting, serve the steaks whole or sliced thickly at an angle against the grain using a sharp knife for best presentation.


  • For a classic accompaniment, consider making a red wine sauce or peppercorn sauce to serve with the steak.
  • Pair the steak with creamy mashed potatoes, crispy oven chips, or a fresh garden salad to complete the meal.
