Steak Rib Eye with Herbs

Steak rib eye seasoned with fleur de sel, garlic, butter, sprigs of thyme, and rosemary.
In the United States, the term rib eye steak or Spencer steak used for a rib steak with the bone removed; however, in some areas, and outside the U.S., the terms are often used interchangeably. The rib eye or “ribeye” originally was, as the name implies, the center best portion of the rib steak, without bone.
In Australia and New Zealand, ribeye term is used when this cut is served with the bone-in. With the bone removed, it is called “Scotch fillet”.(Wiki) The classic recipe for cooking steak consists of roasting on a skillet in vegetable oil (not olive oil!) at high temperature, with further roasting in the oven to the required steak doneness. Before cooking, the steak should be warmed to room temperature — for the 1.5 kg steak, the time will be about an hour.
