    Annacia's Note:

    A less expensive cut can taste pricey — if you know what to look for, Chef Fabio says. . Tips: 1. The right cooking technique will improve any piece of meat -- leaner meats are best for roasting or grilling, fattier meat are good for braising and broiling. 2. Marbling determines how juicy your steak will be. 3. Always let the steak reach room temperature before cooking. Searing 101: sear at a high heat immediately to crisp the outside of the steak. Turn the heat lower once the second side has seared to maintain the melt-in-your mouth pink on the inside. Using a fresh herb brush to brush oil on to the steak will infuse the steak with amazing fresh flavors.

      Simple and Delicious! I still prefer my steaks grilled outside, but this is a wonderful way to prepare a steak indoors when the weather is bad. No sauces, just pure steak taste! My rib-eye was boneless, but very thick, so I had to increase the cooking time.

      We too used boneless ribeyes, and chose to use an outdoor grill because the weather was so beautiful. We've made ribeyes in the skillet also, and both ways are great. The dollop of butter really adds great flavor to the steaks and the herb brush makes the grillmaster (Rick in our case) look very cool using it! Very much enjoyed, thanks for sharing the recipe.
