Steak House Flavor at Home

How to get that premium taste without the grill. Learn the secret to cooking the most perfect and tender steak imaginable.

Who out there doesn’t like a big piece of meat. Am I right? Sad thing is you’re left having to dine out and hit the best of Steak Houses for that premium taste.Or so I thought. See, I ran across this amazing recipe for bringing that steak house flavor home. After giving it a look over I really couldn’t imagine the taste this technique would yield.

Call me skeptical but anything with few ingredients and directions, No sir…

Curiosity eventually got the better of me and I decided it was time to invest in a Cast Iron Skillet. I’ve seen them used on cooking shows but always felt it like it wasn’t for me.

Believe me after cooking steaks this way, you’ll never look back. This is quite possibly the best $20 bucks I’ve ever spent on any piece of cooking hardware. So light some candles and surprise your loved one with some much needed protein. You’ll thank us…

Cast Iron Skillet
1 or 2 boneless rib eye steak(s), 1 1/2 inches thick

Ground Black Pepper

Follow this recipe for the best tasting steaks ever! You’ll be glad you did.


Place a 10-to-12-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven and heat the oven to 500 degrees F. Bring the steak to room temperature.

When the oven reaches temperature, remove the skillet and place on the range over high heat. Coat the steak lightly with oil and sprinkle both sides with a generous pinch of Kosher salt to build a nice crust. Grind black pepper to taste.


Immediately place the steak in the middle of the hot, dry skillet. Cook 30 seconds without moving. It’s very important that you don’t touch or move them. Turn with tongs and cook another 30 seconds, then put the pan straight into the oven for 2 minutes. Flip the steak and cook for another 2 minutes. (This time is for medium-rare steak. If you prefer medium, add a minute to both of the oven turns.)

Remove the steak from the skillet, cover loosely with foil and rest for 2 minutes. Serve whole or slice thin and fan onto plate.
