Cast-Iron Skillet Steak
Total TimePrep: 5 min. + standing Cook: 5 min.
I love steaks in my iron skillet. I did add some black pepper.
This is James Beard's recipe for fried steak. I've been making it for years. Beautiful way to make a steak! But I never salt the steak since I've already salted the pan. I made that mistake once and the steak was so salty, I couldn't eat it.
I have always cooked steaks on my grill, but since I was of out propane I decided to try this recipe. Worked great! I even made a compound butter that was suggested. My only trouble was the steaks were cooking faster than my meat thermometer could provide an accurate reading. I overcooked my steak, but with the added flavor I hardly noticed. Thanks!

Great advice! And Creighton the recipe is for CAST IRON and NOT non stick so i would pull your low review if i were you.
I've always been told to NEVER preheat a non-stick pan to a high temperature. The coating releases toxic fumes.
To Maxwell - please don't rate a recipe that you haven't cooked. Also rude to add your own recipe. If you want to publish your own recipe do it the right way.
Not exactly Heart Smart cooking. Way way too much salt. Try this: medium heat, preheated. No salt. Small amount of canola oil. Lay the steak in, do not turn over for 4 minutes, then do the second side. Rest it covered with foil for 3 minutes and enjoy the taste of the steak....

Good flavor with less salt is to put a slice of Kerry Gold Garlic and Herb butter on each side of the steak as you flip it. Really adds good flavor without all that salt
