How To Cook Steak In The Oven Perfectly Every Time
While an open flame is the optimal steak situation, gearing up the grill isn’t always an option. However, with a quality cut of beef and a good cast-iron pan, the simplest way to cooking a succulent steak is your stove.
You Will Need:
1 rib-eye, strip, or filet mignon
Fresh cracked pepper
1 tablespoon of your best olive oil
1 tablespoon salted butter
Bring steak to room temperature and season heavily with salt and pepper, rubbing the seasonings onto both sides of the steak.
Heat a cast-iron pan in the oven on 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Remove cast-iron pan from the oven and place it on the stove, over high heat.
Lightly coat steak with oil, sprinkle with more salt and place steak in the center of the pan. Add butter to the pan and allow the steak to sear for 30 seconds on each side.
Turn off the heat and return the pan to the oven with the broiler on high. Broil steak for 2 minutes on each side for rare (125 degrees Fahrenheit). (add an additional minute to each side for medium-rare 135 degrees Fahrenheit).
Remove steak from the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Allow steak to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
