DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to its maximum, 500° or more, for at least 20 minutes; if it is equipped with a pizza stone, so much the better.
  • About 10 minutes before you are ready to eat, put a cast-iron or other ovenproof heavy skillet large enough to hold the steaks over high heat.
  • Wait 2-3 minutes, until the pan is beginning to smoke.
  • Add the steaks and let them sit on top of the stove as long as you can before the smoke is intolerable—probably no more than 1 minute.
  • Immediately transfer the pan to the oven; roast the steaks for about 4 minutes, or until nicely browned on the bottom, then turn and cook on the other side for another 3-4 minutes, until done.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
