How to make it

  • Set steaks out on a clean surface until they reach room temperature throughout, 1–2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 500°.
  • Put a cast-iron skillet large enough to fit steaks comfortably into oven and heat for 20 minutes.
  • Rub both sides of steaks with a little olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper.
  • Add steaks to hot skillet and cook in oven until well browned on bottom, 8 minutes.
  • Turn steaks and cook in oven on second side, 5–6 minutes for rare, 7–8 minutes for medium rare.
  • Remove steaks from skillet and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
