Cast Iron Skillet Steak

This is Adam Roberts aka The Amateur Gourmet's video on cooking a steak. Besides being funny it is a good technique and he gets bonus karma for using a cast iron skillet. 

One of the more common search phrases that brings people to this blog is something like "cast iron steak" but I am such an A-hole I haven't done anything to address this beyond this post HERE.

Cool. I cooks steaks this way all the time. There is no way he had that iron skillet on for 30 minutes lol. I usually preheat on high for 3-4 minutes and when the steak hits the pan it's sizzle city and no grey. A minute to a minute and a half per side then it's into a 450F oven.

Hey Zank,
I agree about the preheating.

He'd have to have the wimpiest stove in the universe for that skillet to not be so hot it'd be pinging.

I'm stuck with a crappy ceramic stovetop for another couple of months and even that gets my iron red hot with medium to medium high heat.
