Basic Steak Recipe
(courtesy of Chef Clint Jolly, chef, Butcher Boy Meat Market in Reno. Serves 1 to 2)
A good steak, at least 1 inch thick
Sea salt (coarse flakes are best)
Let steak sit at room temperature on the counter for 30 to 40 minutes before cooking. Heat oven to 250 degrees F. Cook steak in oven, unseasoned, until it reaches internal temperature of 115 to 120 degrees F.
Heat cast-iron skillet over high heat until smoking. Season steak liberally with salt. Add steak to pan, then sear each side for 60 seconds. Remove from heat, and let rest 5 to 8 minutes before slicing.
