  • Place a large, ovenproof skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat.
  • Pat the meat dry, and lightly coat it with oil on both sides.
  • Place the meat in the hot pan and sear one side, until nicely browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Turn, season with salt and pepper, and sear the second side, about 2 minutes.
  • Turn again, and season the second side.
  • Pour the broth into the pan and bring it to a boil.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and cook, uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes for medium rare or 45 minutes for medium.
  • Transfer the meat to a cutting board.
  • Pour the broth into a small saucepan, and skim off the fat that rises to the surface.
  • Combine the cornstarch and water in a small dish.
  • Bring the broth to a boil over medium heat, and stir in the cornstarch mixture.
  • Whisk until the broth thickens slightly.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
