Ingredients

  • 2 thick-cut bone-in rib-eye steaks

  • To Taste kosher salt

  • To Taste pepper

  • 4 Tablespoon Butter, unsalted

Steps

  • 1

    Season both sides of steaks with salt and pepper and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Place a cast iron skillet with enough room for the steaks directly on the grill grate and preheat.
  • 3

    Place steaks on the hottest part of the grill and cook for 5 minutes with the lid closed.
  • 4

    After 5 minutes, open the lid and place the butter in the skillet, it should melt almost immediately.
  • 5

    Flip the steaks into the cast iron skillet so the grilled side is facing up. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes basting the steaks with butter every couple of minutes. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 125℉ to 130℉ for medium-rare (about 10 minutes).

    Remove steaks from the pan and rest for 10 minutes. Transfer steaks to plates and pour reserved butter over the top. Enjoy!
