Never fear, even when the inclement weather prohibits you from firing up the grill so you can enjoy a perfectly prepared medium rare flame grilled bone-in New York strip steak, you can get a fantastic result without stepping foot outside.
Start with a fabulous piece of meat that has been brought to room temperature. Make sure the oven is preheated to a ferocious 450 degrees. Heat a heavy bottomed cast iron skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil on the stove over medium high heat. Meanwhile season the steak according to your taste. My preference is to simply enhance the flavor of the meat with some sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Once the olive oil just begins to smoke lay the steak in the pan. Just sear the steak for about 2 minutes and turn it over and sear the other side for another 2 minutes. Place a generous pat of butter on the top of the steak and place the pan in the oven. Let roast for about 5 minutes or until the center is cooked to your preference. Remove steak from the pan to a plate and pour the olive oil and butter pan juices over the steak. Let rest 10 minutes and enjoy!
