  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and add a cast iron skillet with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to your stove over high heat.

  2. Once the steak is at room temperature, begin drying it with a paper towel. Blot all of the moisture away from the steak on both sides.

  3. Next liberally season with salt and pepper or use the Omaha Steaks seasoning. That’s what I used here, and it adds such sensational flavorful to the beef.

  4. Once you are finished seasoning the steak, check the skillet. If you see a bit of smoke (it must be hot in order to get that beautiful browned color you want), you are ready to begin searing. Using a pair of tongs, gently place the steak in the hot cast iron skillet.

  5. Sear side one for about 5-6 minutes or until a darkened crust develops then flip it over using your tongs and repeat on the other side.

  6. Once the other side’s crust has developed, place the entire cast iron skillet in the preheated oven. The baking time will depend on preference here.

  7. The entire baking time shouldn’t be longer than 15 minutes. Once you remove the steak, add a tablespoon of butter to the top and sprinkle with chopped parsley if you desire.

  8. Most importantly, let your steak rest before devouring it. I know it will be hard but do not skip this step. Enjoy!
