Italian beef recipe: don’t blink because this savory recipe is ready in just a few seconds time!
1. Pour a few tablespoons of the olive oil in a large non-stick pan and add the fresh thyme sprigs and chopped garlic.
2. Place the pan over low heat and cook for a couple of minutes until the garlic and thyme start to release their fragrance. Now turn the heat very high. When the olive oil is hot, add a few slices of the rib eye beef. Season with pepper and salt. Do this in batches if necessary.
3. Keep an eye on the beef because it goes very fast! Fry the beef for 30 seconds on one side and then turn it over quickly. Use barbecue tongs.
4. Season the other side of the beef and fry it for another 30 seconds. Immediately remove the fried beef from the hot pan and transfer it onto a clean plate. Fry another batch of the beef. Once all of the beef has been fried, divide it over warm plates and drizzle with an extra drop of olive oil. Sprinkle with a last pinch of freshly ground black pepper. Serve the beef immediately.
