Haven’t really enjoyed cooking steaks at home until I came up with this method–crispy outside, easy to control the amount of cook on the inside.
Preheat the oven to broil–set the top rack on the 2nd track from the top. Heat the cast iron skillet on the stove top until the skillet is warm/hot to touch. Dry steaks and then season as desired. Put the steaks in the pan and immediately place in the oven under the broiler. For 1″ steaks medium rare, cook 8 minutes total. Cook shorter for rarer–longer for more well done.
