I, unlike many foodies, don't like my food to bleed, or even be pink. If you are like me, here's a great way to get a steak well done and still keep it from shoe-leather consistency!
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 450.
- If you have a large cast iron skillet, now is the time to use it. Set it on the burner on high and heat it up for about 5 minutes. Get it scary hot.
- Season your steaks - salt, pepper, oil -- or pretty much anything you like on your steak. If you are using filet mignon or an extremely thick steak, butterfly it before cooking.
- Toss your steaks in the skillet, get your oven fan on and turn your smoke detector off, do not touch those steaks for 3 minutes.
- Flip carefully, and no more touching for 3 minutes more.
- Move pan to the oven (make sure your pan is oven safe) -- if you have a digital meat thermometer, use it and let meat get to 165 or so. If you don't, I'd say 10 minutes in oven.
- You are supposed to let a steak rest for 5 minutes or so after taking it out of the oven. I don't -- and it's never hurt me!
