HOW TO COOK A GOOD STEAK WHEN THE GRILL ISN’T AN OPTION

Had a great nicely marbled Rib eye. Pre Heated my cast iron pan on the stove top. Preheated the broiler to 500 degrees (It’s an electric oven, I’m partial to gas, maybe this is part of the problem?) Slapped it into the pan, heard a nice sizzle and immediately put it under the broiler, about 4 minutes each side to nice medium rare. The steak was tender and juicy, no special seasoning, just salt and pepper but I just wasn’t thrilled. It had some char/crust but not as good as a good steakhouse would serve nor as good as it would be on my Weber charcoal grill. Where did I go wrong? How do you cook a good steak at home when the grill isn’t an option?
