  • 2 tbsp soy sauce Japanese preferred

  • 2 tbsp mirin

  • 2 tbsp sake

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 tsp cornstarch

  • 1 tbsp neutral oil

  • In a bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together the soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, and 2 tbsp water. Whisk in the cornstarch and set aside.

  • In a large, nonstick frying pan, heat up the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, but not browned.

  • Add the thinly sliced beef to the pan and cook, until just cooked through. Add the sauce to the pan and bring to a gentle simmer, letting it bubble, thicken, and reduce.

  • When the teriyaki sauce is glossy and coats the beef, remove from the heat and serve over fluffy white rice. Top with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Enjoy!

It's called the reverse sear because it flips tradition on its head. Historically, almost every cookbook and chef have taught that when you're cooking a piece of meat, the first step should be searing. Most often, the explanation is that searing "locks in juices." Searing does not actually lock in juices at all; it merely adds flavor. Flipping the formula so that the searing comes at the end produces better results. But what exactly are those better results? More even cooking, better browning, more tender meat & more flexibility!

  • Ribeye steak about 1½ to 2 inches thick

  • Santa Maria seasoning, my amazing steak seasoning or seasoning of choice

  • avocado oil or canola oil

  • butter

  • Fresh rosemary, optional


  • Preheat your oven and place a wire cooling rack over a baking sheet. Place the steak over the wire rack and season both sides.

  • Add to the oven and bake for 15 minutes to sear the beef and cook it to a temperature of 90°F. Place your cast-iron skillet in the oven to heat it while the meat sears.

  • How to cook ribeye in a cast iron skillet: Add oil to the skillet over high heat. Once it smokes, sear the ribeye for 2 minutes on one side and 1-2 minutes on the opposite side until browned and the internal temperature reaches 135°F or your desired level of doneness


  • Always let your beef rest after cooking. This helps seal in all of the flavor, so don't slice it too early!

  • Cut against the grain when slicing. The grain is muscle fiber and looks like little lines running through the beef, so cut in the opposite direction to those lines. This will give you the most tender bite every time.
