One day when we ran to the store to get some milk hubs suddenly said that he wanted steak. I don't normally buy steak at home so I told him that we were going to have to get some. When you just run to the store to grab something buying steak when is not on sale can be quite expensive but since we don't normally get steak we just bought some. I don't even remember which cut we bought but I think it cost about $8/lbs or more. It might be cheap cut for those steak lover out there.
When we got home I quickly marinate the steak with my homemade marinate and let the steak thaw out to room temperature.
Then Heat your oven to its highest temperature (usually 500 degrees F) with the cast iron pan inside. It may take a while until the pan is completely heated. When the pan has reached the temperature of the oven, remove it place over a lit burner (this works best with a gas range) for a few minutes to let the pan soak up more heat.
I stir fry some vegetables to go with my steak with the drippings from the steak. Yummy...this is so simple with no grill involved and it only takes a little while to make it. The first time hubs ate my steak this way he wanted more!
