Ingredients

1 (2-inch) New-York strip loin

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  1. Everyone has to try Chuck Hughes' fool proof technique for cooking a mouthwatering, perfect, medium-rare steak.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  3. Sprinkle the steak with salt and pepper on each side. In a blazing hot cast-iron pan on medium-high, heat the oil. Sear the steak for 3 minutes on each side. Remove the steak from the stovetop and put it in the oven for 5 minutes.

Cook’s Note

If you have a smaller steak the searing time won't be the same.
