  • 1 USDA Prime bone-in ribeye (aka Cowboy) steak
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon neutral-flavored oil like safflower or grapeseed

Balsamic Reduction:

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • ½ clove garlic, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • To make the balsamic reduction, place the vinegar, maple syrup, garlic and mustard in a small saucepan. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and syrupy, 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Sprinkle the top of the steak with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat on the stove. When the oil is hot, add the steak, seasoned side down. Season the second side with salt and pepper.
  • Sear the steak without moving it until browned, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes on the second side. Transfer the skillet to the oven.
  • Cook to desired doneness, flipping the steak halfway through cooking.
  • Let the steak rest for 7-10 minutes. Sprinkle a pinch of salt on top, slice, and serve with the balsamic reduction.
