1 New York strip steak
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
Season the steak on both sides with the salt and pepper. Rub both sides with the olive oil and set aside.
Heat a medium heavy-bottomed frying pan (not nonstick!) over high heat until very hot but not smoking, about 3 to 4 minutes.
If the pan gets too hot and starts to smoke, take it off the heat to cool a bit.
Place the steak in the pan and let it cook undisturbed until a dark crust forms on the bottom, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Easy, simple and delicious!
