The Ingredients

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ tbsp of your favorite rub or seasoning
  • 1 12 oz ribeye steak, room temperature and patted dry

The Steps

  1. Preheat your Stargazer cast iron skillet on LOW for 5-10 minutes before turning the temperature up to medium-high. In a small bowl, add the mayo and seasoning and stir with a spoon until thoroughly combined. Slather the mayo mixture generously all over your ribeye steak.
  2. For rare steak: add the steak to the skillet and sear on the first side for 3 minutes. Flip the steak and sear on the second side for 3 minutes. Remove the steak from the skillet and let rest under tin foil for 5 minutes before serving. Add 1.5 minute per side for medium rare, add 3 minutes per side for medium.

Are you going to sell your seasoning oil so the color of the pan will remain the same golden color?

Are you going to make a deep cast iron 12 inch fryer ?
