- Place the steak on a dinner plate and sprinkle both sides with the Devil’s Backbone Seasoning. Set the steak aside.
- Place the cast iron grill pan over the burner on your stove, and turn the heat to medium-high. Let the pan get very hot, which takes about 4 minutes. You will see the pan begin to smoke. Turn on your exhaust fan.
- Brush the grill pan with the oil. Lay the steak down on the pan, and do not move it for 4 minutes. It will sear, and as the outside sears, the steak will actually release itself from the pan. With tongs, turn the steak and let it sear on the other side, about 3 to 4 minutes.
- Depending on the thickness of the steak, and whether you want the steak pink in the center or cooked through, the steak may be ready or need a little more cooking. Turn off the heat under the grill pan, and let the steak remain on the grill pan until – using a digital thermometer – the steak registers – 130 to 135 for medium-rare, or 140 for medium. If the steak is thick and needs more cooking time to reach the desired degree of doneness, place the grill pan and steak in a 350-degree oven until done.
- If desired, place a pat of butter on top of the steak before carving and serving.
