This Pan Seared Ribeye Steak is a sizzling new way tocook your favorite cut of beef. Instead of cooking directly on the grill grates, the ribeye steak is basted in a Pit Boss Chop House Rub and herb-infused compound butter. The butter and flat surface of the cast iron create a crispy outer sear with mouthwatering juiciness from butter basting. Treat yourself and serve with a generous pat of compound butter on top.
