We begin with a 1.5 pound 1 inch Steak. Bring this to room temperature at least 30 minutes before cooking but no more than one hour ( not all day on the counter..use common sense) Preheat oven to 375 degrees while steak is on the counter. When ready to cook pat both sides of steak with paper towel and take 2 Tablespoons of Olivel Oil and brush both sides of the steak. Take a cast iron skillet (a substitutions) heat on high, sprinkle steak with Johnny's season salt and put in pan for 2 minutes, using tongs (no forks allowed) turn steak over and cook another 2 minutes. Now put it into the oven for about 6 minutes less if you want it rare or med rare..I would say start with 4 minutes and go from there . Take out of oven and put on a plate where it will sit for 5 not eat before sitting time is up or you will lose the juices going back into the meat. You might have to make it a couple of times to get it to the exact way you like it but I enjoyed it everytime until I got to that point. Ovens also vary so if you know your oven that will help you to be more successful. This is a fairly quick meal and if you add your favorite side dishes a real treat.

Here I made mashed potatoes with butter and sour cream then added chopped green onions so it was like a baked potato but quicker then a can of french green beans and dinner was ready in 30 minutes
