Cooking Instructions

This Pan Seared Ribeye Steak is a sizzling new way to cook 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.  

Wood Pellet Recommendation 

For their smoky - spicy flavor, we recommend using Mesquite Hardwood Pellets for this recipe. 

Note: This recipe uses Pit Boss Chop House Rub.  

  1. Season steak with Pit Boss Chop House Rub, then refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. In a small bowl, use a fork to mash up butter and 1 teaspoon of Pit Boss Chop House Rub. Transfer compound butter to a sheet of parchment paper, roll, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Remove steak from the refrigerator, then place a covered cast iron skillet on the grill. 
  4. Start up your Pit Boss Grill on SMOKE mode, with the lid open, and let it run for 10 minutes.
  5. Turn your grill up to 400°F and let it come to temperature. If using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for medium-high heat.
  6. Remove the lid from the skillet. Open the sear slide. Add oil, then sear steak 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  7. Add 3 tablespoons of butter ½ to 1 tablespoon at a time, tilting the pan, and using a spoon to baste the steak.
  8. Continue searing, adding and basting with butter for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. Remove steak from the skillet, rest for 5 minutes, then serve warm with additional compound butter and fresh herbs.

Special Tools

  • Cast Iron Skillet, with cover
  • Parchment Paper
  • Small Bowl

Bigger. Hotter. Heavier. Tip

For even more smokier flavor, cook the steak on SMOKE mode for 45 minutes prior to starting this recipe. Your cook time on the sear might be a little less depending on your preferred temperature of doneness.
