Dry Aged Ribeye

     Dry Aged Ribeye is made for lovers, especially at Valentines (although this girl wouldn't hate it anytime of year)!  By now, you've probably heard of dry-aged meat, but what makes it so special you ask!?  Whelp, at Whole Foods Market, their butchers use the prized rib and loin cuts and age them for 14-21 days in house.  Humidity and temperatures are controlled during this process, and you can see it in person when you drop by the store, ( ... is anything more sexy than seeing aging beef behind glass).  The aging process concentrates the steak's natural flavor while also reducing the moisture content.  Enzymes also break down the fibers on a microscopic level, which imparts a tender character.  If you are in the mood to impress this Valentines, or any other time you are trying to suck up, I highly recommend letting Whole Foods help you look even more awesome than you are!  So when your Sweetheart says, "Where's the beef" will have plenty to say!  ;)

Ingredients for 2-4 servings~
3 Tablespoons Butter, softened
1 Tablespoons chopped Garlic
1 finely diced Green Onion
Zest of half a Lemon
Dash Pepper
Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2~ one pound Dry Aged Ribeye Steaks

     Mix Butter, Garlic, Onion, Lemon and Pepper til well incorporated.  Add EVOO and 1/3 Butter mixture to medium high Cast Iron Skillet, add both Steaks and sear 5 minutes on each side for medium rare, longer for more well done.  Remove from heat and spread each Steak with remaining Butter mixture and let rest 5 minutes.  Enjoy  :)
