  • 3 Ribeye Steaks
  • 1 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • Canola Oil as needed


Chili Butter:

  • 8 oz Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp Red Chili Flakes
  • 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Fried Onions
  • 1.5 tsp Chopped Chives
  • Kosher Salt to taste


  • Begin by adding all the ingredients for the chili butter to a bowl and mixing together.
  • Grab plastic wrap or some non-stick wax paper at 1-1.5ft in length. Place all the mixed butter on one side of the paper, then carefully roll it into a “log” shape.
  • Place the butter in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
  • Next, lather your ribeye steaks with oil and season with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Set to the side.
  • Preheat your grill to high heat temperature (around 400F) for direct cooking.
  • Add a cast iron skillet to the grill 2 minutes before cooking along with the clarified butter.
  • Make sure to also pull your butter out of the fridge and slice into ½“ medallions.
  • Add your steaks to the skillet and cook until 120F internal (around 2-2.5 minutes per side).
  • After you have flipped the steaks, top each steak with 1 medallion of the Garlic Butter and let it melt.
  • When the steaks are done cooking, pull them off and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  • Pull your skillet off the heat and discard any excess grease from cooking the steaks.
  • Add the skillet back on to the grill at a slightly lower temperature (around 325F), and deglaze the skillet with white wine.
  • Add some hot sauce next, along with the rest of the garlic butter.
  • Once the butter has fully melted, add your shrimp into the skillet and let cook for 1.5 minutes per side.
  • When done, pull off and let shrimp rest.
  • Slice into your steaks and serve with your shrimp. Enjoy!
