Cook A Steak In Cast Iron
Since I ran out of propane for the grill (I know, I know, way to be prepared!) but still wanted to do some homestyle cooking, I got to try out a technique I’ve had my eye on for a while now, and along the way learned how to cook a steak in a cast iron frying pan.
Crank It Up!
I cranked the oven up to 450 degrees and put my biggest cast iron frying pan on a high heat. While that was going I seasoned the steak with just a bit of Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. I added a bit of olive oil into the pan and watched it start to smoke just a bit. I added the steak and it started to sizzle! I seared it for 45 seconds and then flipped it. I gave the other side a 45 second sear as well and then the pan and steak go right into the hot oven.
I cooked it for 3 minutes and then flipped it. It cooked for 3 more minutes and then out on to the stove. I let it sit in the frying pan and rest while I assembled the rest of the meal.
