- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 strip loin steaks, (about 10 to 14 ounces) each
- Freshly ground black pepper
In a large cast-iron skillet, melt the butter. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. When the butter is very hot and starting to brown, add the steaks. Cook the steaks for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. You want to almost char the outside of the steak and have the center cold. Remove the steaks from the pan and serve.
