Ribeye Steak w/Garlic Butter


Full Recipe: 


Makes one.
1-inch thick rib eye steak, 1–2 lbs
2 Tbsp. Kosher salt
2 Tbsp. freshly ground black pepper
4 Tbsp. canola oil
3 Tbsp. butter
2 sprigs thyme
2 bunches rosemary
2 cloves garlic, crushed


Preheat oven to 250°F.
Season the steak evenly with the salt and pepper on all sides.
Place the steak on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes. 
Heat the canola oil in a skillet or stainless steel pan over high heat until smoking. Sear the steak on one side for 30 seconds, then flip. Immediately, add the butter, thyme, rosemary, and garlic, swirling the pan to melt the butter quickly.
Place the herbs and garlic on top of the steak, and push the steak toward the top of the pan. Tilt the pan toward you to pool the butter near the bottom. Using a spoon, continuously scoop the butter over the top of the steak for about 30–45 seconds. This helps not only flavor the steak, but also helps cook the steak faster. If you prefer your steak medium or medium-well, cook your steak longer.
To test the doneness of your steak, lightly press the tip of your left index finger to the tip of your left thumb. The fleshy area below the thumb should feel how rare steak feels pressing the surface of the steak. For medium-rare steak, touch your middle finger to your thumb and press the area below your thumb. For medium, touch your fourth finger to your thumb. For well done, touch your pinky to your thumb.
Rest the steak for 10 minutes on a cutting board. Slice, then serve!

2016 Olympic Water Polo Live Streams & Schedule

U.S. women sweep Russia in three-game California series

Kami Craig

The U.S. competed for the last time at home, winning all three games against Russia before departing for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The U.S. women’s water polo team swept Russia in a three-game series hosted in California, their last matches on home soil before departing for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
If they are given the green-light to compete, Russia is slated to be in the women’s tournament in Rio, too. FINA, the international governing body of water polo, has not yet cleared the Russian women’s water polo team for competition in the wake of the Russian doping scandal.
In the first game, in San Diego on July 21, Maddie Musselman led the U.S. in scoring with six goals. Also scoring for the U.S. were Courtney Mathewson (3), team captain Maggie Steffens (2), Melissa Seidemann (2), Makenzie Fischer (1), Kaleigh Gilchrist (1) and Kami Craig (1).
Goalkeeper Ashleigh Johnson made eight saves to secure the victory, where the U.S. topped Russia 16-5.

Water polo - Toughest sport in Rio? Teams brace for battle

An Olympic event since 1900, water polo has recently been gaining in popularity across the United States but has a long tradition in Eastern Europe, whose national men’s teams are perennial medal contenders.

27 JUL 2016 - 11:08 AM  UPDATED YESTERDAY 11:08 AM
Hungary, the most successful nation in the sport with nine Olympic titles, saw their run of three straight golds come to an end with defeat to Italy in the quarter-finals in London, where Croatia prevailed.
Hungary were also involved in the most famous game in water polo history when their semi-final at the 1956 Games against the USSR earned the title “Blood in the Water Match,” with players from both teams emerging from the pool battered and bleeding.
Hungary, who won that match and went on to take the gold medal, will be one of the favourites in Rio but standing in their way could be Brazil.
The hosts have hired legendary former Croatia coach Ratko Rudic and recruited some talented foreigners who took on Brazilian nationality. Rudic has won four gold medals with three different teams as a coach at the Games.
Other men's contenders include Australia, Croatia, top-ranked Serbia, and the United States. Prolific goalscorer and U.S. captain Tony Azevedo may have a little extra to prove in Rio, his city of birth.
“The men’s competition is really wide open,” said Bradley Schumacher, a former U.S. Olympian in both water polo and swimming, and two-time gold medal winner. “A lot will depend on which team’s goalie is playing best.”
Goalkeepers need quick reflexes in Olympic water polo, where 32-minute games can feature several dozen shots on goal with the ball hurled at speeds that can top 50 miles per hour(80 kph).
The women's tournament was added to the Olympics in 2000, and reigning world champions the United States have medalled at each Games.
Favourites in Rio, the U.S. women have their sights on a second straight gold after beating Spain in the London Games final with their strongest challengers likely to be Australia, China and Brazil.
Considered one of the world's most demanding sports, water polo has in recent years adopted penalty shootouts instead of extra time to resolve draws.
