Loved it! Had an 8 oz. tenderloin (about 1 inch thick), did the minute on each side, then 1.5 on each side in the oven. Perfect medium rare! DH says best steak I ever made, and I agree.
This is the only way we make our steaks at home. In fact, after doing this for years now, we no longer order steaks out, because they aren't as tender and tasty. Just be prepared for the smoke detectors to go off when you drop the steak into the pan. At least they always do at our house. :)
Fantastic! I am a steak SNOB, and only looked this up because it started raining just as I was about to grill. I dont have a cast iron Skillet, so i just used a nonstick pan to sear it, and then put it in a metal pan to put in the oven. PERFECT Medium rare.
I have practied this way of cooking steaks (typically filet mignon) since I watched Alton Brown's tutorial on Good Eats several years ago. This results in a truly restaurant-quality steak that would easily cost $$$$ at Flemings or Mortens. It took a couple of tries to get them to my liking of rare-medium rare....but well worth the "trial and error". Make sure not to skimp on the Kosher salt... it is one of the keys to the success of this recipe. I sometimes pair the steaks with Ina Garten's gorgonzola sauce (Recipezaar #58072)...it is "to die for"...takes a bit of time, but well worth it!
Super easy and delicious recipe! I was afraid of making steak before, this recipe makes it so accessible. No reason to order steak at a restaurant once you try this.
This the best way to cook a steak! I cooked a New York Strip. I did not have a cast iron skillet. I cooked it in a Cuisinart skillet. It was amazing!
I was so disappointed. My husband
I'd give it a 5, but it just didn't sear the way I had hoped. I have cast iron and it was SMOKING hot coming out of the oven. I like a nice dark char, but I must admit the NY was cooked PERFECTLY!!! Medium rare, juicy and delicious. I'd do it again for sure!
In the words of my husband, "That Mr. Brown is a genius!"
This was EXCEPTIONAL - easy and delicious!
