Sizzlin' & a Smokin' Strip Loin Steaks


1 Strip Loin Steak per person  2 inches thick cut or thicker!
Olive Oil
Coarse Sea Salt
Cracked Pepper

Take steaks out & let warm up from the frig for 15 minutes or so. In a large heavy skillet ( I use my cast iron skillet) drizzle enough olive oil to give the pan a coating. Let pan heat up to where the oil is just starting to smoke. While pan is heating coat each steak with olive oil, be generous! Sprinkle the side that is up with a nice sprinkling of the salt & pepper. as soon as pan is ready drop the steaks in season side down. Season the top side same as you did the bottom side. Let them sear in the pan without moving them. You want a nice brown crust. Cooks steaks for at least 3 minutes, check one steak by lifting up the edge. If nicely browned flip steak over & repeat the searing. As soon as you flipped the steaks heat the oven to 375 degrees. Once both sides of the steaks are browned you will finish them by popping them in the the pan into your hot oven. Cook steaks 3 minutes in hot oven for rare, 6 to 7 minutes for medium & 10 minutes for well done. CAREFULLY remove your pan IT WILL BE HOT & plate the steaks. Put a pat or two of butter on top of each steak & let it melt down over the steak for added flavor! STEAKHOUSE STEAK right at HOME!
