This is exactly the way to cook ribeyes. About the only things the author failed to mention is to use a cast iron pan (not enameled cast iron), Lodge and Wagner are great cast iron pans. Don't use a stainless steel pan as it will permanently discolor, and don't even think of using a Teflon/non-stick pan at this temperature. I sprinkle the pan with sea salt; the salt with crackle when the pan is ripping hot. Pepper will be incinerated at this high temp (and burned pepper is bitter-tasting), so I would pepper only once after the meat is flipped. And make sure you have your kitchen exhaust fan on because it'll create lots of smoke.

Beringer's 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Private Reserve makes an absolutely delightful accompaniment
Swill! Only a non wimpy cab from Sonoma county's Raven's Wood could hold up to that hunk of cow.
