Ribeye steak with Cabernet Sauvignon Sauce


  • 2 ribeye steaks (about 1 inch thick)

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 cup French Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon wine

  • 1/2 cup beef broth

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (optional)

Section Title


  1. Take the ribeye steaks out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking to bring them to room temperature. This ensures more even cooking.

  2. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels and season both sides generously with salt and black pepper.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking.

  4. Carefully place the ribeye steaks in the skillet and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time to your desired level of doneness. Use a pair of tongs to flip the steaks only once during cooking.

  5. Once the steaks are cooked to your liking, remove them from the skillet and transfer them to a plate. Tent the plate loosely with aluminum foil to keep the steaks warm while you prepare the sauce.

  6. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  7. Pour in the Cabernet Sauvignon wine and beef broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.

  8. Allow the sauce to simmer and reduce by about half, stirring occasionally, for about 5-7 minutes.

  9. Once the sauce has reduced, stir in the butter until melted and fully incorporated. This will help to thicken and enrich the sauce.

  10. If using, sprinkle in the fresh thyme leaves and season the sauce with additional salt and pepper to taste.

  11. Return the cooked ribeye steaks to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the top.

  12. Let the steaks warm through in the sauce for about 1-2 minutes.

  13. Serve the pan-seared ribeye steaks hot, accompanied by the Cabernet Sauvignon sauce spooned over the top.

  14. This dish pairs wonderfully with a glass of French Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon wine. Enjoy your meal!
