Skirt steak - cast iron inside, how hot is hot enough?

fldhkybnva | Jun 1, 2013 10:46 PM

I am a steak lover and finally have decided to try the ever-so-raved-about skirt steak. I've read most of the details I think - very high heat, just a few minutes per side, slice thinly across the grain. I plan to cook it inside in a cast iron pan. It's a steak probably 3/4 -1 inch or so thick. For steaks, I usually use a 500F oven to heat a cast iron pan and then add more heat on the stove with the burner on max which creates a wonderful smoke storm. Is this the kind of hot I need? I assume I don't need to put it in the oven at all as it's meant to be cooked quickly so perhaps 2-3 minutes each side? TIA
