Strip Steak - KC or NY strip, about 1 1/4 inches thick
Salt & pepper to taste
Heat a cast-iron or oven-safe skillet to medium-high heat. Sear steak on each side for about 1 minute, or until the steak releases from the pan. You can brown all edges too for maximum juiciness.
Place skillet into oven heated to 350 F for 10 minutes or until steak reaches desired doneness.
