If you’re a fan of spice, you’ll be happy to know spicy foods have several health benefits. Sriracha sauce contains the chemical capsaicin (which is what gives it its fiery taste). Not only can eating spicy foods dull your hunger, but capsaicin may also have a small metabolism boosting effect1.

Another benefit of capsaicin is its anti-cancer effects. Research shows that regularly eating capsaicin reduces the risk of developing cancer and may actually cause cancer cells to commit suicide2.

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time5 minutes
Total Time15 minutes


  • 20 oz ribeye or 2 10 oz steaks
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter softened
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 2 tsp honey
  • sea salt and pepper
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


  • Melt down the grass-fed butter in a small dish, then combine the
    butter with the sriracha, honey and a sprinkle of sea salt in a small
    bowl. Set aside (or refrigerate until ready to use).
  • Season both steaks well with salt, pepper and garlic powder
  • In a large cast iron skillet heat coconut oil on high heat. When oil
    is hot, carefully add seasoned ribeye with tongs and let cook for
    about 2 minutes.
  • After the 2 minutes, flip the ribeye and add butter to the pan, then
    let it cook for an additional 2 minutes. While cooking, spoon the
    butter and baste the steak consistently.
  • Flip the steak again and baste for another minute or so,
    continuously basting the butter mixture over the top of the steak. 
  • At this point your steak should be about medium-rare. You can
    remove the steak if it’s cooked to your liking or cook for another
    few minutes for more of a medium temperature.
  • Remove steak and baste again with leftover butter mixture and
    place steak onto a place. Cover with foil (loosely) and let rest for
    another 8-10 minutes before cutting.
