Cooking Instructions:

  • Take the steak out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking to bring it to room temperature.
  • Season the steak generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill over high heat.
  • Add olive oil or butter (optional).
  • Add garlic cloves (optional) and fresh herbs (optional) to the skillet or grill.
  • Add the steak to the skillet or grill and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on the desired level of doneness (rare, medium-rare, medium, medium-well, or well-done).
  • Use tongs to flip the steak over and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes on the other side.
  • Remove the steak from the skillet or grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
  • Slice the steak against the grain and serve.

Relevant Notes & Tips:

  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure that the steak is cooked to the desired internal temperature (145°F for medium-rare, 160°F for medium, and 170°F for well-done).
  • Don’t overcrowd the skillet or grill – leave some space between each steak to ensure even cooking.
    For a flavorful crust, resist the urge to move the steak around while it’s cooking.
  • Letting the steak rest before slicing helps to ensure that the juices stay inside the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful steak.
