Pan Grilled/Oven Roasted Steak p. 718

At the beginning of this recipe, Mark Bittman says that a gas grill will not do for grilled steak. This is unfortunate for us since that is all we have at this time. So I began to look at the other 4 ways to prepare a steak.

For this recipe its very simple. Heat an oven proof skillet over the stove for several minutes so that the pan is hot. Then put some course salt on the bottom of the pan, put on your steaks, and immediately put in a very hot oven.

I cooked my steaks, which were a bit less than 1” thick as the recipe called for, 3 minutes on one side and 4 on the other. They were done medium, they way Bryan likes it.

They were delicious, especially topped with Bacon Compound Butter.
