"This is a great recipe for when you can't get to the grill. Perfect for those awful winter blizzardy days... when you can't find the BBQ buried under all the snow. This will give you a medium-rare steak. If you prefer it done more, add a minute ot two per side. For gluten free use gluten free Worcestershire sauce."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Drizzle enough oil to cover bottom of cast iron skillet and bring to high heat.

Step 3

Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on one side of steak.

Step 4

Place seasoned side down in skillet and sear for about 35 to 40 seconds, until you have a nice brown sear. (Times may differ depending on type of burners)

Step 5

Sprinkle other side with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 6

Flip steak over with tongs (do not use fork, you don't want to pierce the meat)and sear for another 35 to 40 seconds, again until seared nicely.

Step 7

Mix the melted butter and Worcestershire together and brush over steak.

Step 8

Flip steak over with thongs and brush other side with butter mixture; place pan in oven and allow roasting for 3 minutes.

Step 9

Turn steak over with thongs and allow roasting for another 3 minutes. (This will give you a medium rare steak, add a couple more minutes per side if you prefer it done more.)

Step 10

Remove from oven and place steak on a cutting board.

Step 11

Tent with a piece of aluminum foil and allow resting for 5 minutes.

Step 12

Serve with your favourite side.

I made these exactly as posted and they turned out delicious! I used a NY Strip steak. Also served with blue cheese butter as a topping. I'm not an inside steak kind of person, really loved a grilled steak! But these were fabulous and are a great option when grilling is impossible. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.

Perfect it was perfect. Loved the steak prepared this way, moist, tender, juicy and very flavorful. I used a Top Sirloin steak it worked perfectly with this recipe. Thanks for sharing. Made FYC Tag Game.

So happy I finally got a chance to make these steaks. With it being so hot here in Florida most of the time I don't have a chance to use my oven very much but now that it's cooler I can. The steaks came out perfect and very juicy. We love this way of doing steaks and I will do them this way until the weather gets too hot for using the oven.

This worked out so good for us, and the steak was so tender you could just about cut it with a fork. Nice flavor too!
