  • 24 oz ribeye steak (about 2 large steaks)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 20 cloves garlic divided, 15 cloves and 5 cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped


  • Pour the olive oil in a medium skillet and add about 15 garlic cloves. Cook over low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring about every 5 minutes.
  • While the garlic cooks, cut the steak into 1 inch pieces, trimming any excess fat. Season evenly with salt and pepper. Press the remaining 5 cloves of garlic and set aside.
  • When the garlic is soft and golden brown remove it from the pan and drain and reserve the oil.
  • Add one tablespoon of the oil back into the pan over high heat. Once the oil is hot, place the steak in the pan in a single layer (if the pan isn't big enough for all of it in a single layer, do a second batch) and let cook for 2 minutes. Flip the steak over and let cook an additional minute, then stir in the garlic and cook while continuously stirring for 1 more minute. 
  • Remove the steak from the pan and toss with the pan and toss with the parsley. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes:

  • Other cuts of steak can also be used such as sirloin, tenderloin, or strip steak.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
  • If short on time, recipe can be made with out sautéed whole garlic cloves.
