Salt and pepper
4-5 cloves Garlic, sliced thinly
¼ C. Pine nuts

3.) When sheet pan(s) is(are) hot, pour vegetables in a single layer. Return to oven.

Pan-Roasted Ribeye Roast, Rosemary Pan Sauce
Serves: 4

1 ea. 32 oz. ribeye roast
2 Tbs. Kosher Salt
Lots of freshly ground black pepper
2-3 Tbs. Olive oil
¾ C. Red wine, preferably zinfandel
1 C. Stock
3-4 ea. Sprigs rosemary, picked and chopped

1.) Remove roast from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature.
2.) Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
3.) Dry roast well. Season generously with salt and pepper.
4.) Place olive oil in skillet. Sear roast, beginning with fattiest side down.
5.) When well browned, turn to next side. Work around the whole roast.
6.) Place in oven when all sides are seared. This should take 15-20 minutes and will make a bunch of smoke. Roast will be a solid rare to medium rare at this point (115° to 125° internal temperature). If a higher doneness is required, place skillet in the oven to finish.
