Try using a dry cast iron pan with a little salt sprinkled on it. Obviously, use less salt on the steak.
Let the steak come to room temperature..
Open all doors and windows around your stove-kitchen area, heat up until pan starts smoking, throw on a pan for 5 minutes or so. Flip. Another 5 mins on the pan. Remove and place on a warm plate and tightly cover with foil. Let sit for 10 mins or so.
Drink a cocktail and reflect on your day.
Sit down and eat your steak.
Good advice, this is what I do. I tend to use a thin layer of olive oil and a whole lot of fresh ground pepper on the steak, instead of just a layer of salt on the pan. Heat cast iron until you can no longer see through the haze, toss it on, and I want to say I only let it cook 2.5-3 minutes.....could be wrong, though. And do not move the steak around!
