I've been researching lately exactly how to cook a steak in a CI skillet and tonight made my first attempt. The sirloin steaks were seasoned with olive oil, Montreal Seasoning, garlic, rosemary, and a bit of butter at the end of the cook.

The flavor profile and outer crust produced one of the best tasting steaks I've ever eaten. I'm very please with my first try with this new streak cooking process and most likely will continue with future cooks.

Following are a few pictures and thanks for checking it out.

Nice!

Looks great, David. :thumb:

How long did you heat the skillet before you put the steak on?

Turned out great!

I have to wear welding gloves when I do it that way. :)

I let the CI skillet with a bit of olive oil heat up 5-10 minutes before throwing on the steaks. Amazingly, after the cook I simply wiped out the skillet with a paper towel and it was "clean".

Very simple process.

Looks outstanding! Well done bud!

I'm surprised at that temp that the Olive oil didn't start to burn. Really looks good as you have it plated.

If you've never tried Oakridge BBQ Carne Crosta seasoning on a steak before it puts a fantastic crust on a steak (burgers too).

How is the outside/bottom of the pan? Is it covered with black residue?
I've cooked over a campfire with CI and the bottom was ruined by black goo.

Looks awesome - I always do my steaks in cast iron on the stovetop, but never tried in the Egg. This may be this week's meal!

There was no black goo on the bottom of the pan after the cook. Perhaps, because I burn Royal Oak lump charcoal that burns very clean or the direct intense cook temperature (500-600F) incinerated all residue collecting on the bottom of the pan, just like when your oven is self cleaned.

Not sure why but definitely no collected black goo residue on bottom of pan.

cast iron is the way to go. Was that a modern lodge pan?
