  • OMG!!!!!! Alton Brown's steak in cast iron skillet REC and REV!!!!
    I tried this this morning with a couple changes, but it was the BEST steak I'VE ever made, and I make alot! The difference with mine is that I just heated the skillet on top of stove, dipped steaks in mixture of bread crumbs, Parmesian, and Italian seasonings, then dip in melted butter, back into crumbs, then into skillet, cook on both sides for a few minutes, then into oven as directed. Enjoy! For more tips check out Smatterchu's review. Recipe below.

    PAN SEARED RIB EYE
    Recipe courtesy Alton Brown

    1 boneless rib eye steak, 1 1/2-inch thick
    Canola oil to coat
    Kosher salt and ground black pepper
    Place 10 to 12-inch cast iron skillet in oven and heat oven to 500 degrees. Bring steak(s) to room temperature.

    When oven reaches temperature, remove pan and place on range over high heat. Coat steak lightly with oil and season both sides with a generous pinch of salt. Grind on black pepper to taste.

    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.

    Yield: 1 to 2 servings
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 5 minutes
    Difficulty: Easy

    If you have never watched Good Eats with host Alton Brown (on FoodTV), you are missing a treat. After years of literally ruining every steak we purchased, I have finally figured out how to make a good steak. This recipe works for any type of steak, as far as I've tried.

    Once we got the hang of it, we have added things like garlic, Worchestershire, Lawry's, etc. There are just a few points that should be followed exactly:

    1. Cast Iron Skillet (make sure it's properly "seasoned")
    2. Kosher Salt -- gotta get kosher, the other stuff isn't as good for this
    3. Room Temperature Meat - otherwise it will cool off the skillet too much
    4. Canola Oil -- any other type will smoke WAY too much and too soon

    ****Oooh, and one thing I forgot to mention -- make sure you have plenty of ventilation for this recipe. We are in an apartment now, and we have to take one of the smoke detectors down while we make steaks. After we're through, we put it back up, but there's way too much smoke for this tiny vent to handle.*****

    Enjoy. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Forgot to mention when I did it I added a couple of Tbsp.of canola oil to the hot pan before adding the steaks. Didn't want the bread crumbs mixture to stick.

    Also, don't forget to scrape all the yummies from the breadcrumb mixture after it is done cooking back on top of steak. It is so crisp on top, and tender inside, I'm still dreaming of it!

    Have read this recipe through and can't find any mention of bread crumbs...you said you added a little oil to prevent the bread crumbs from sticking. Has that ingredient been ommited from the directions?

    Elizabeth, I improvised with this recipe, just mixed equal amounts bread crumbs with parmesian and added Italian seasonings, that's all!

    Me again, actually, the ratio is probably 2/3 bread crumbs, to l/3 parmesian, just adjust to your own taste! Janet
