Cast Iron Skillet Steak
Pan seared to perfection, you may find yourself skipping the grill and using grandma's cast iron skillet for steaks from now on!"Juicy, tender steaks result from this technique. As scottmillerinva notes, have windows open or hood vents at full to avoid smoke detectors going off and filling house with smoke." - Kuroyume0161

Cast Iron Skillet Steak Preparation
Place cast iron skillet in oven and heat oven to 500 degrees. Bring steak(s) to room temperature.
Season both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. When oven reaches temperature, remove pan and place on range over high heat.
Immediately place steak in the middle of hot, dry pan. Cook 30 seconds without moving. Turn with tongs and cook another 30 seconds, then put the pan straight into the oven for 2 minutes. Flip steak and cook for another 2 minutes. (This time is for medium rare steaks. If you prefer medium, add a minute to both of the oven turns.)
Remove steak from pan, cover loosely with foil, and rest for 2 minutes. Serve whole or slice thin and fan onto plate.
