Okay here is the proper way to cook a steak.

Preferably you would use a better cut then mine. Mines a top loin strip. Do whatever cut you want the method is the same.

All the ingredients. Cast iron pan, sea salt and pepper from costco. Thats all you need.

You have to use a cast iron pan. They are only 10 bucks
Image

30 minutes before you want to start cooking put your steak out on the counter. The steak should be at room temperature when you are throwing it on the pan. Put your cast iron pan on highest heat, don't oil or grease up the pan. Preheat your oven to 350.

first lightly dab the steak with a paper towel to remove some of the excess blood.

Next put a liberal amount of pepper on the steak. Remember both sides and the edges. Lightly rub the pepper into the steak. This isn't shown in the pic.

Wait 5 minutes for everything to heat up. Also open any windows or doors since it is going to get smokey. Lightly salt the steak right before you are going to throw it in the pan. Put a teaspoon of butter on the pan(apparently canola oil or peanut oil are better choices) and then throw the steak on. Cook on one side for 1.5 minutes then 1 minute on the other.
Image


Take the pan and steak and put it in the oven. 5 minutes should be good for medium.
Image


Take the steak out after 5 minutes and put it on a plate and tent the steak using aluminum foil, 5 minutes should be good. This will keep the steak cooking even though it is removed from the heat. Put a little slit at the highest point of your tin-foil tent to let air escape.

Here is the final product. Wish i had a bigger steak but it turned out fine.

I know everyone has their own special way to cook it. This is the most basic way to cook a steak in a cast-iron pan. And don't mind my shitty dirty kitchen. I'm living with 5 other retards in a rental house.

That steak looks perfectly cooked and I believe that's how they do it in the finer restaurants. I usually grill mine, but this is something I'll definitely try. You didn't mention what the oven temperature should be, or do you just stick it into a cold oven for five minutes?

Worked great I tried on it on some strips last night.

Thanks!

Nice, red, and juicy. Isn't a medium-rare steak actually raw in the center?
