  • 2 1/2 lb Wholesome Meats Boneless Ribeye Steaks
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • In a small pot, make clarified butter by melting the butter on the lowest setting. Do not disturb or agitate the butter, this will cause the fats and water to not separate. Once the fats and water have separated, spoon out the clear butter into a shallow dish and discard the fats.
  • Meanwhile, season the steaks with the salt and pepper and let come to room temperature. Heat the grill to 450°F.
  • Dip the steaks into the dish with the clarified butter coating each side. Place steaks onto grill going parallel to the grates. Cook for 1-3 minutes per side, depending on your desired doneness.
  • Next, use tongs to pick up steaks off the grill and turn them exactly 90° and place them going perpendicular to the grates and cook 1-3 minutes more. You will be grilling the same side down.
  • Then flip steaks to the uncooked side and repeat the process to create the grill marks again. Let steaks rest 5-10 minutes before serving or slicing. Enjoy!
