“This is the only way I cook steaks now. Learned this recipe from Alton Brown's show Good Eats on the Food Network.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place 10 to 12-inch cast iron skillet in oven and heat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Bring steak (s) to room temperature.
  3. When oven reaches temperature, remove pan and place on range over high heat.
  4. Coat steak lightly with oil and season both sides with a generous pinch of salt.
  5. Grind on black pepper to taste.
  6. Immediately place steak in the middle of hot, dry pan.
  7. Cook 30 seconds without moving.
