Andy and I have decided that rib-eyes are our favorite, so we planned to have them for dinner tonight. However it's been so hot outside, the idea of grilling them was unappealing. So I came up with this technique: sear the steak in a hot cast-iron skillet and then bake it in the oven until perfectly medium. These steaks were pretty thick; if yours are thin, adjust the oven temperature accordingly. This was definitely an experiment and it worked well. Andy declared that he preferred this approach to grilling. Enjoy!
