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!
Good recipe of you like your steals incinerated. Let's face it Alton Brown is a better TV personality than cook. Reduce oven time to a minute per side for edible, medium rare steals.
This recipe is perfect. The steak is the best I've ever had. I used a 1.5 inch t-bone. Cooked in oven 4 minutes first side. 3 minutes second side. Came out a medium well (no blood), tender, juicy, the fat was nice and brown. This is definitely my new way of cooking steaks. Oh yeah, I opened doors and windows and turned the A/c up so it would keep blowing, before I turned the oven on. Quite a bit of smoke but worth it.
My first time making steak and it was amazing!! Restaurant quality! Very easy to follow instructions. It took no time at all.
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
