Hi! Great question! First, dismantle your smoke detector. Then, take a cast iron skillet and place it in a high broiler about 6 inches away from the heat. Let the dry skillet get real hot…about 15-20 minutes. The steak has gotten down to room temp and has been pat dry with a paper towel. Rub a little olive oil (optional) on it, season with a good course salt and fresh ground peppercorns. When pan is hot, I mean real hot, sear the steak for a minute on each side, continue to broil for about 4 minutes on each side (2 inch steak) and let it sit for 5 minutes before digging in. Have fun!
