  • For the Steak:
  • 4 ribeye or sirloin steaks (1 to 1.5 inches thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional for a bit of heat)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • For the Garlic Butter:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped (optional)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Prepare the Steaks:
  2. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let them come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. This ensures even cooking.
  3. Preheat your grill to high heat (450-500°F) or heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat on the stovetop.
  4. Season the Steaks:
  5. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels.
  6. Drizzle both sides of the steaks with olive oil.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the kosher salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.
  8. Rub the seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of the steaks.
  9. Cook the Steaks:
  10. Place the steaks on the hot grill or skillet. For medium-rare, cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 130-135°F.
  11. For medium, cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 140-145°F.
  12. Adjust the cooking time based on your desired level of doneness.
  13. Prepare the Garlic Butter:
  14. In a small bowl, mix the softened butter with minced garlic, chopped parsley, thyme (if using), and a pinch of salt.
  15. Mix until well combined.
  16. Finish the Steaks:
  17. During the last minute of cooking, add a dollop of garlic butter on top of each steak.
  18. Allow the butter to melt and baste the steaks.
  19. Rest and Serve:
  20. Remove the steaks from the heat and let them rest for about 5 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
  21. Serve the steaks with any remaining garlic butter on the side.

Enjoy your delicious, homemade Texas Roadhouse-style steaks!

Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your taste and pair the steaks with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes, green beans, or a fresh salad.
