The stars aligned last Friday, when I used a little know-how and a lot of luck in making Steak Friday a success! I used the cast iron skillet to sear both sides of the steak, then threw the whole thing into a hot oven, for a few minutes (I shaved off a couple minutes, remembering that during its rest, it would continue to cook). Meanwhile, I par-cooked potatoes and green beans, then sauteed them separately in butter and herbs to finish. It all came together so nicely! It is so wonderful when it all works out.
