Easy step by step instructions for a wonderful small ribeye roast. Cut down for the smaller household. This roast will not leave you eating leftovers all week.
You will probably have some smoking from the oven due to the butter and the high temperature to start. So you have some choices. You can just realize it will probably happen and live with it. You can eliminate the butter and use a higher temperature vegetable oil which still may smoke some. You could add some water to the pan under the rack so when the butter melts off, it hits the water .(max temp of 212) instead of the 500 degree pan.
