  • Olive oil 
  • Butter 1 tablespoon per steak

  • - Heat the cast iron skillet on high for 1-2 minutes until it's smoking hot. 
  • Pan fry the steaks for about 1-2 minutes without touching them. It might smoke a lot, so open the windows to let the smoke out. Since the steaks are already oiled, you do not need to add any extra oil into the skillet. 
  • Turn the steaks after 1-2 minutes. 

 Put a little knob of butter onto each steak. 

  • Pan fry the steaks without touching them for another 1-2 minutes.
