With perfectly seared Ribeye steaks seasoned with salt and pepper, and a rich and flavorful garlic-butter sauce to drizzle on top, this dish is a true showstopper. Follow along with this recipe and get ready to indulge in a decadent and unforgettable steak dinner.

One of the best things about this steak recipe is how easy it is to make. With just a few simple ingredients and minimal prep time, you can have a satisfying dinner on the table in no time. The key to making the perfect steak is to let it come to room temperature before cooking, and to sear it in a hot skillet to create a golden-brown crust on the outside while keeping it juicy and tender on the inside. And with the addition of a flavorful garlic-butter sauce, this steak is elevated to the next level. The sauce is made with minced garlic, butter, and beef broth or red wine, which come together to create a rich and savory sauce that’s perfect for drizzling over the steak.


  • 2 (8-ounce) ribeye steaks, about 1 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup  red wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  2. Once hot, add the steaks to the skillet and sear them for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they form a golden-brown crust. Remove the steaks from and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the red wine and stir, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  5. Simmer the sauce for 2-3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  6. Return the steaks to the skillet and spoon the garlic-butter sauce over them.
  7. Cook the steaks in the sauce for another minute or until they are heated through and cooked to your liking.
  8. Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing. Drizzle the remaining garlic-butter sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
  9. Serve the steaks with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a simple salad.

Pairing the perfect wine with your steak dinner can take your meal to the next level. For this garlic-butter steak recipe, a full-bodied red wine is the way to go. A classic pairing for steak is a bold Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon or a rich Petite Sirah, which have enough tannins and acidity to cut through the richness of the steak and complement its savory flavors. If you prefer something a little more mellow, a fruity Zinfandel can also be great options. When in doubt, ask me for recommendations based on your personal taste preferences and budget. With the right wine pairing, you can elevate your steak dinner to a truly gourmet experience.

If you’re looking for specific wine recommendations to pair with this delicious garlic-butter steak, here are a few options to consider. The Tempranillo from Belledor Vineyards, with its bold and complex flavors of tobacco, blackberry, raspberry and black olive, as well as the intense tannins would pair perfectly with the rich and savory flavors of the steak and garlic-butter sauce. The Petite Sirah from Amador Cellars, with its intense fruit flavors and smoky notes, would also be a great pairing, bringing out the full-bodied and meaty character of the dish. For those who prefer a classic pairing, the Cabernet Sauvignon from Plein Air Winery would be an excellent choice. Its dark fruit flavors of black cherry and robust tannins would complement the steak’s savory flavors, while its smooth finish would balance out the garlic-butter sauce. Finally, for those who enjoy a more fruit-forward wine, a Zinfandel from Turley winery would be an excellent choice. Its bold and spicy flavors, with hints of raspberry and black pepper, would complement the steak’s charred exterior and bring out the flavors of the garlic-butter sauce. No matter which wine you choose, these recommended options are sure to elevate your garlic-butter steak dinner to a true culinary delight.

In conclusion, this garlic-butter steak recipe is a surefire way to impress your dinner guests, or simply treat yourself!
