  • 1rib eye,½-inch thick, bone in or out about 1½ pounds without the bone
  • ¾tspsea salt,or kosher salt, coarse
  • 1tspfreshly ground pepper

  • 4sprigsthyme,leaves
  • 1tbsprosemary,fresh minced
  • 1clovegarlic,minced
  • 1shallot,about half the size of a golf ball, minced


  1. Remove the outer layer of fat from the ribeye.

  2. Pat the steak dry with a paper towel. Season each side with salt and pepper and rub them in a bit. Put the steak in the fridge, uncovered, for at least an hour and up to 48 hours.

  3. In a small saucepan, add butter, herbs, garlic, and shallots. Melt over low heat. Do this at least 10 minutes before you are ready to put the steak on the grill. Gently reheat the butter to melt it again before you put the steaks on the grill.

  4. Prepare a charcoal grill for two-zone grilling, so half is hot and one half is warm.

  5. On a gas grill, heat the grill to 450 degrees F with two burners going, which should only take about 10 minutes, then turn one of the burners down to medium to create two cooking zones.

  6. Add the steak to the hottest side of the grill. Close the lid and sear for 2 minutes. Open the lid, flip the steak, and baste it with the melted herb butter and herbs. Close the lid. Cook for 2 additional minutes.

  7. Flip the steak again and move it to a lower heat side. Baste it again with butter. Continue flipping and basting every two minutes for the next 6 minutes, closing the lid between each flip.

  8. After the steak has been on the grill for a total of 10 minutes, transfer it to a clean platter; it should read 137 degrees F to 140 degrees F internally. Baste it again with butter.

  9. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

  10. Slice the steak against the grain. Pour any remaining herb butter sauce over top and serve.
