  • 1 beef Ribeye Steak, Bone-in, Frenched, 2 to 3 pounds, 2 inches thick (also known as Cowboy Steak)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 medium tomatoes, cut in half and cored
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices (about 2 cups)
  • 2 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium shallot, 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 tablespoons Italian-herb Compound Butter (click here for recipe)
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika-Infused Oil (Click here for recipe)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Season beef Ribeye Steak with salt and pepper, as desired. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered 4 minutes on each side. Place steak in ovenproof, nonstick pan. Insert oven proof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef, not resting in fat or touching bone. Roast in 350°F oven 30 to 50 minutes.

    Cook's Tip: You may substitute a Tomahawk steak for a Ribeye Steak.

  2. Place tomatoes on aluminum foil-lined shallow baking sheet. Mix parmesan, garlic and 1 tablespoon basil in small bowl. Top each tomato half with 2 tablespoons Parmesan mixture. Add tomatoes to 350°F oven below steak 15 minutes before expected finish time.
  3. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, yellow squash and shallot slices; cook 8 to 10 minutes until tender and just starting to brown, stirring occasionally. Remove skillet from heat; stir in remaining 1 tablespoon basil. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Keep warm.
  4. Remove steaks from oven when meat thermometer registers 135°F for medium rare; 150°F for medium doneness. Transfer steaks to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 10 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium doneness.) Increase oven temperature to HIGH broil. Broil tomatoes 4 minutes until cheese begins to brown.
  5. Serve steak with zucchini mixture and roasted tomatoes. Garnish with Italian Herb Compound Butter and drizzle with Paprika-infused Oil, as desired.

    Cook's Tip: Italian-Herb Compound Butter: Combine 1 cup unsalted butter, softened, 1 tablespoon minced shallot, 4 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley, 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon bourbon, 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh basil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano and 1 pinch ground nutmeg in food processor bowl. Cover and pulse on and off until blended.

  6. Paprika-Infused Oil: Combine 1-1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 cup paprika in small saucepan; heat on low heat 30 to 45 minutes. Strain through fine mesh strainer and coffee filter. Cover strainer and let sit 24 hours. Cover infused oil and refrigerate until ready to use.
