Knowing how to cook a great steak at home is a skill that every steak-lover should know. Master the basic technique and it’s yours for life — meals at home, fancy date nights, dinner parties, you name it. All you need is a pan and an oven. Check out our video to see how it’s done.

This method for oven-cooking steak is one I’ve gone back to again and again. You heat up the skillet under the broiler, and then move it to the stovetop. Sear the steak on both sides, and then put it back under the broiler to finish cooking. It takes less than 10 minutes and is adaptable to any cut of steak. I usually just season my steaks with salt and pepper, but you can also use any favorite spice rubs or flavored oils you have in the kitchen.
