METHOD for Rib Eye Steaks:

Bring steaks to room temperature. Coat lightly with oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a cast-iron skillet in the oven at 500ºF. Remove the skillet and place on stove over a high heat. Add remaining butter once hot add steaks in the middle of the skillet. Cook for 1 minute without moving. Turn with tongs and cook another minute, then put the pan into the oven for 2 minutes. Flip the steak and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove steaks from skillet and cover loosely with foil to rest.

METHOD for Beef Tenderloins:

Season the tenderloins with salt and pepper. In a fry pan over medium high heat, melt half the butter. When the butter is hot, add the tenderloins,sear until golden underneath, about 2 minutes. Using a pair of tongs, turn and cook for 3 minutes for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.
