- Season the meat with salt and pepper. Then place olive oil into the pan

- Place the steak into the pan and cook to your desired preference. For example, if you wanted a medium rare steak, you would cook the steak for 3-4 minutes each side

- Take the meat off the heat once cooked to your liking, then let rest before serving. The rarer the meat is the longer the resting time. For a rare steak the resting time is 5 minutes and for well-done it is 1 minute
