Start with two thick Rib Eye Steaks. Let the steaks rest for at least 30 min outside the fridge. Try to get as much marbling (fat in the steak)  as you can. This is where all the flavor is.

Pat down steaks with a paper towel to remove moisture and season generously with sea salt and pepper (don't be shy). You want to pat the seasonings into the meat. Repeat for the other side.

After three minutes give the steaks a half turn. Don't worry if you think the fire is too hot. The hotter the flame the better the crust. Save the olive oil in the pan. 3 minutes after rotating, turn.

Sorry for the bad pic.. After turning the steaks over, use the left over olive oil to coat the side that was just down. The fire may get very hot here. If so, reduce the cooking time on this side.

Garnish with parsley. I prefer my sauce on the side because the steak is so juicy. Oh and of course make sure you have a glass of your favorite red wine on hand. Enjoy!
