Thermador Ribeye Steak with Roast Tomatoes and Asparagus

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to Roast 400° F.

2. For the steaks: Liberally season both sides of steaks with salt and pepper. Heat a large oven-proof skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat. When very hot, place steaks in skillet and sear until a nice dark crust develops, approximately 1-2 minutes on each side.

3. Place pan directly into the oven and cook for 5-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your steaks and desired doneness. (Test by pressing and feeling steak firmness or check the internal temperature with a thermometer for steak doneness; 130-135°F for medium rare, 155-165°F for medium well.)

4. Remove steak from pan and set aside covered with foil. Allow to rest for about 5 minutes.

5. Serve warm with the roast asparagus and tomatoes.

For the steaks:

2 (12 oz) Ribeye Steaks, at room temperature
Kosher or sea salt, to taste
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

For the Roast Tomatoes
1 pound tomatoes, halved
olive oil for coating (about 1/4 cup-60ml)
sea salt and fresh black pepper to taste

1. Lay foil or parchment paper on baking sheet and then lay tomatoes, cut side up. Drizzle the tomatoes with light layer of oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast tomatoes for about 25-30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are roasted and slightly brown or charred on edges. Allow to cool.
