DIRECTIONS

  • STEAK:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bring the steak to room temperature.
  • Rub the steak on both sides with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Let it sit while you preheat a cast iron skillet over high heat, about 4 minutes.
  • Place the steak in the skillet, and don't move it for 3 minutes.
  • Flip the steak, and leave it alone for another 3 minutes.
  • Put the skillet into the preheated oven for 5 minutes. (This will be medium rare.).
  • Remove the steak from the skillet to a platter, cover loosely with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  • OPTIONAL SAUCE:
  • While the steak is resting, deglaze the pan with the red wine, and put back over high heat. Scrape up any bits of steak stuck to the pan.
  • Add the shallots to soften in the wine as it reduces.
  • Finish the sauce by swirling in the butter to incorporate.
  • Pour sauce over steak.
