|Sides, as per service|
- Marinade and Steak: In blender, pulse oil, vinegar, oregano, thyme, garlic and chili flakes until emulsified. Pour half of the mixture into full-size deep hotel pan. Arrange steaks in single layer in pan; top with remaining marinade, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Parmesan Cream Sauce: In saucepan, combine wine, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, peppercorns and coriander seeds; cook until wine is reduced by half. Add cream; cook for 3 minutes to reduce. Stir in Parmesan.
- Assembly: Remove 1 steak from hotel pan, allowing excess marinade to drip off; pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in 8-inch (20 cm) cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat; sear steak for about 4 minutes per side or until browned. Add butter, garlic and thyme; cook, basting with pan drippings, for about 3 minutes or until medium-rare. Transfer to rack; let stand for 5 minutes.
- Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) Parmesan Cream Sauce to skillet; simmer until heated through. Slice steak and arrange on serving plate; pour sauce over top. Garnish with arugula. Serve with sides.
Ribeye may be marinated for up to 1 day for maximum flavour.
Serve with Mediterranean-inspired sides, such as sautéed mixed mushrooms, rosemary roasted potatoes and wilted rapini.
For more luxurious flavour, stir 2 tbsp (30 mL) of cold butter into finished sauce.
Steaks can also be cooked sous-vide, then pan-seared to finish.
