  • 2 slices of ribeye steak 4 to 8 oz. per slice
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 6 pieces dried bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • salt and ground black pepper


  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of the steaks. Rub and make sure that all the area are completely covered. Let it stay for 10 minutes
  • Heat the cooking oil in a pan.
  • Gently fry one side of the steak for 1 minutes.
  • Turn the steak over to fry the other side. Add garlic and bay leaves and fry for 1 minute. Scoop some butter and oil over the steak while frying.
  • Flip the steak to continue to cook the other side. For rare steaks do this step until each side is cooked for a total of 3 minutes. If you do not like some pink in your steak, cook it a little bit longer.
  • Remove the steaks from the pan. Lay it fat over a wooden chopping board. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Slice the juicy rib eye steaks. Enjoy!
