Up until the last month we didn’t have an outdoor grill. All of our grilling has been done inside on a George Foreman. That was challenging when it came to steaks. When I saw I could cook a steak in a cast iron skillet, I wanted to try it. And I have to say, it turned out really well. Just make sure you buy a good cut of meat, this is the single most important rule for this recipe. Cheaper cuts haven’t turned out as well for us. Also be sure to have a good sear before putting your steaks in the oven. Glad to find another way to use my cast iron skillet!
Cast Iron Steak, from Food.com
Steaks, room temperature
fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Rub steaks on both sides with oil, salt and pepper. Let sit while cast iron skillet is preheating over high heat, about four minutes.
Place steak(s) in pan and don’t move for three minutes. Flip and again don’t move for another three minutes.
Place skillet in preheated oven for five minutes for medium rare steak, cook a little longer if you like your steak more done.
Remove skillet from over and place steak on a patter. Allow it to rest for several minutes.
