- 1-2 Steak (of your choice)
- 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
- LGCM Ultimate Steak and Roast Rub
Season your steak to your taste with our Ultimate Steak and Roast Rub (or salt and pepper) and let sit at room temperature for 10 – 30 minutes while you heat the skillet.
Heat a large cast iron (or other oven safe) skillet to high heat. Once the pan is very hot, add the vegetable oil to the pan. Let the vegetable oil heat until it is shimmering, then add the steak(s) to the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the bottom is seared, then flip the steaks and put the skillet into an oven preheated to 450ºF.
Oven roast your steak for about 10 minutes at 450F until it reaches your desired level of doneness. The time will vary a bit from oven to oven and with thicker or thinner steaks, so check the steak after about 8 minutes so you don’t overcook. Cook to 125º for rare, 130ºF for medium rare, 135ºF for medium, or 140ºF for medium.
Remove the steaks from the oven, and remove from the skillet. Let the steaks rest for 3 minutes, and serve. Enjoy!
