This video shows how you can cook a perfect steak. Let the steak sit for 5 to 10 minutes. This will help it cook evenly. Salt both sides with Kosher salt. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Heat an oven proof pan on top of the stove until it begins to smoke. Place the steak in the hot pan. Cook the steak for 2 minutes for each side on top of the stove. Brush butter onto the steak for a nice crust. Put the pan with the steak into the oven for 6 minutes for a nice medium rare steak.
