Rib-Eye steaks made this way are tender most every time!  Lovely served with Mushroom sauce for a change of pace.  My mushroom soup in concentrated form makes a great mushroom sauce!  You can thin the sauce slightly, if desired.  The one side dish is Cauli-Mash with sweet potato added - makes for a very substantial-tasting side - more for pre-maintenance and maintenance levels.

21/2  lbs grass-fed Rib-Eye steak, (1.1 kg)
  (thick steaks)
Seasoning salt
3 tbsp olive oil, OR bacon fat (30 mL)
1/lb sliced fresh mushrooms (250 g)
4 green onions

Sprinkle steaks with seasoning salt and leave at room temperature for at least an hour.

In nonstick skillet, fry mushrooms and green onions over medium heat in 1 tbsp (15 mL) bacon fat, OR olive oil until tender and most of the moisture has evaporated.  I usually put a lid on the pan slightly ajar to allow for the water/moisture from the mushrooms to evaporate.

In two nonstick skillets in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil, OR bacon fat sear steaks on medium high heat for 1 minute.  Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook the steaks for 3 or 4 minutes more.  Turn steaks and cook another 5 to 10 minutes on medium low heat, until cooked to your liking.  During the last 5 minutes, flip the steaks as needed. 

Mushroom Soup/Sauce:   Prepare mushroom soup, page__.  However, use only 1 tsp (5 mL) onion salt and 1/2  tsp (2 mL) cornstarch.  Leave out the xanthan gum and withhold the mushrooms. In pot on stove, place soup and bring to boiling over medium heat.  Stir in cooked mushrooms.
