Pan-Seared Thick-Cut Strip Steaks
Why This Recipe Works
The key to our ideal pan-seared steak recipe was to start the steaks in a cool oven and then to sear them. And by searing the steaks quickly, we kept the meat directly under the crust from turning gray. Cooked this way, the steaks developed a beautiful brown crust in less than four minutes, while the rest of the meat stayed pink, juicy, and tender.
