Mealthy Tip

Pre-heating your cast iron skillet ensures the perfect sear on your steak, locking in all the delicious flavor for you to enjoy. Salting the skillet creates a natural, non-stick surface. Don't move the steak after it's placed in the skillet until you're ready to flip it.

Used this technique because I was waiting for Amazon to deliver my replacement radiants for my grill and didn't want to lose my steaks to flare-ups. I also have to admit that I used my Spicy Coffee Rub recipes, so I'm not 100% faithful to the recipe. That said, what a GREAT way to get a good sear if you don't have a grill at your immediate disposal. The cast-iron really held the high heat well and gave everything, flavorwise, I've otherwise missed in cooking steak on the stovetop. Never again!

I like a bit more flavor on my steak and a very rare steak so this wasn't for me. But my husband enjoyed his (with a little steak seasoning sprinkled on).

I love steak and when I cant get to my grill this is the only way to cook them. Sometimes simple recipes are the best and this one does not disappoint. I shaved off 3 minutes from the oven cook to get my steak closer to 120-125 internal temp to make it rare instead of medium rare.

I used to always make the mistake of moving my steak around too much, but when you get the cast iron nice and hot and not mess with your cut too much, it comes out perfect. Also definitely let your steak rest for a 5-10 min to let the juices inside settle mmmm... just thinking about it makes me want to throw another one on!

I've always prepared my steak on the grill, but this gave the ol Weber a run for its money. The rosemary and thyme were a brilliant touch.
