Perfect Ribeye Steak with Gremolata

25 minutes
Calories 950kcal


  • 2 rib eye steaks (small, ideally grass-fed, 400 g / 14.1 oz)
  • 1/4 salt (I like pink Himalayan)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 4 tablespoons chopped parsley (small, ideally grass-fed, 400 g / 14.1 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic (small, ideally grass-fed, 400 g / 14.1 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (small, ideally grass-fed, 400 g / 14.1 oz)
  • 3 tablespoons ghee (small, ideally grass-fed, 400 g / 14.1 oz)


  • Allow the steak to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
  • Using a paper towel, pat the excess blood off.
  • Toss with some melted ghee and season with salt and pepper.
  • The ghee may solidify even at room temperature which is perfectly normal.
  • Make sure you season the steak after you toss it with oil.
  • You don't want to wash the seasoning off.
  • Prepare the Gremolata by mixing the melted ghee (or olive oil), freshly chopped parsley, crushed garlic and finely grated lemon zest.
  • Season with salt to taste.
  • Set aside for later.
  • If using ghee, keep warm or it may solidify.
  • Fry in a very hot heavy based pan over a high heat for 2-4 minutes on each side to let the meat caramelise and seal in the juices.
  • When you see the sides getting brown, it's time to flip it over.
  • The exact time depends on the size of your steak.
  • Small would take 2 minutes, while large up to 4 minutes to brown.
  • Reduce to a medium heat and continue to cook for further 4 minutes (rare), 7 minutes (medium), 11 minutes (well done).
  • There is no need to turn the steak again.
  • If you use a thermometer, the steak should read 52-60 °C/ 125-140 °F (rare to medium-rare).
  • I used a cast iron griddle pan which is perfect for steaks! Remove the steak from the pan and allow it to rest in a warm place for 5-7 minutes.
  • The steak will finish cooking in the residual heat as the temperature slowly goes down.
  • The best way to rest the steak is to fold it up in parchment paper and then in a kitchen towel.
  • This will keep it juicy and equally pink inside.
  • Serve with the Gremolata and try Creamy Keto Mash.
