I’ll be honest, at this point I’m not the best at grilling steaks on the BBQ. Some times I nail it, others times, I miss completely. I think it is the open flame that causes me consternation. So I was looking for a method that I would not ruin this gorgeous bone-in ribeye.
A bit of research indicated using a very hot cast iron skillet along with blazing hot oven would do the trick. The skillet sears the steak and the oven (I used the grill) finishes it off.

  9. After another 2 minutes, add a pat of butter and move to grill. Careful! It’s very hot  and heavy.

    Slice and serve, while I could have eaten the whole thing I split it with my wife and even have a little left over for lunch!
