Start with 2 8-ounce rib-eye steaks.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Rub each head of garlic with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and place in a covered casserole dish. Bake for 15–20 minutes. Remove garlic from oven to cool, uncovered, but leave the oven on. Squeeze out roasted garlic; mash with a pinch each of salt and pepper.
Slice a 3-inch pocket lengthwise in each rib-eye steak. Fill each pocket with roasted garlic paste. Season both sides of each steak with salt and pepper.
Heat the remaining oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sear steaks 3 minutes per side, then place in oven for 6 minutes for medium rare; add 1 or 2 minutes for each degree of doneness. Allow steaks to rest 10 minutes before serving.
