Cooking T Bone In Cast Iron Skillet Then Oven
November 25, 2019
"Ever since chronic pain took over my life my memory has suffered. I have to have instructions for a lot of things. So here is what I use for searing steaks on the rare occasion that we eat them. This tastes great, but is for only if there are one or two people eating. I tried to search and couldn't find anything else like this on here. NOTE: THE COOK TIME IS VERY APPROXIMATE, AS YOU NEED TO GO BY A THERMOMETER TO TAKE AN INTERNAL TEMPERATURE OF THE MEAT. I WILL LIST THE TEMPERATURES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE INSTRUCTIONS. IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD."

Place the steak on the counter for at least 30 minutes to get it to room temperature.
When ready, heat a cast iron skillet on high heat for five minutes.
While that is heating, get the steak ready. Rub the olive oil over both sides with your hands and then sprinkle each side with salt and pepper according to your taste.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put the T Bone in the hot cast iron skillet. Sear on each side for 3 minutes.
Coat the bottom of a shallow metal roasting pan with the butter. Take the steak out of the skillet and put into the roasting pan. Place into the oven to finish cooking.
This is where you need the thermometer. THE CHART IS LISTED BELOW.
When it is cooked how you want it, place the steak on a platter and let it rest for five minutes by tenting it with aluminum foil to keep warm.
