"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 by Step Method

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.

Great steak! Mine was a little overdone because I didn't sear it hot enough and had to leave on stove longer than optimal (we like it very rare!). In the oven for only 2 minutes per side. However, the flavor was exceptional and I can't wait to try it again!

Best steak I've ever made off the grill! Followed the recipe exactly as directed (cooking a wee bit longer because medium rare is too rare for us) and it was outstanding. Used T-bone steak. Already planning to make this again when we want a special meal and the grill is under snow!

Our steaks cooked this way came out excellently delicious and juicy. They are ever so easy to make and made for a quick and very well enjoyed meal on a busy weeknight. Because one of my steaks was thicker than the other left one in longer and they both came out tip-top perfect! They were no-less better than outdoor grilled, actually better than some. Thank you, Bea, for sharing. Made it “For your Consideration” tag game.

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.
