Cast Iron Skillet Steaks
Spring is on the way but not yet here in Western New York. So, how do you cook a really good steak in the winter without your grill? Iron skillet steak cooking is the way to make a perfect steak.
I had a one pound strip steak about 1-inch thick. I realized the best way to cook this was in my cast iron skillet.
The first thing that I did was preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
I chopped up two cloves of fresh garlic because I like garlic. Then covered the bottom of my cast iron skillet with olive oil.
I set the burner to medium-high while I seasoned my steak.
I seasoned my steak on both sides with salt, pepper, and McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning.
I firmly pressed the seasoning into both sides of the steak with my fingers.
By this time the cast iron pan was hot. I cooked the steak exactly 3 minutes per side.
Then I place the cast iron skillet into the oven and cooked it for 10 minutes.
I wanted my steak to be medium rare. Using my digital thermometer I made sure that I had an internal temperature of 140 degrees.
I let my steak rest for 4 to 5 minutes before cutting into it.
Cooking time may vary by the thickness of your steak.
|Rare||130 to 135°F|
This steak was so tender, juciy and full of flavor. What I like best about cooking with my cast iron is you can go from stove top to oven. Just make sure you have a good oven mitt to take the pan out of the oven.
As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
