I made my first steak!!!

Okay, I know, not that big of a deal. But I've always been strangely intimidated to cook meat by myself. A family friend sent me some Stockyard filet mignons for Christmas, so yesterday I threw one in the fridge to cook (solo) tonight. I decided to make it the simplest way ever, I rubbed some olive oil, salt and pepper on it, then left it alone for an hour or so. I preheated my oven to 450, then heated up my cast iron skillet. Two and a half minutes on each side, then a pat of butter on top, and in the oven for about 6 minutes. It was AMAZING!!!!! Like buttah. Seriously, not to toot my own horn, but one of the best steaks I have ever had. I ate it a la carte, and I'm kind of glad, because anything else would have just gotten in the way. I kind of thought that tomorrow I would make a chimmichurri to put on the cold leftovers I was going to slice up, but….what leftovers???? I couldn't stop eating it! I don't know much about frozen mail order steaks, but I would HIGHLY recommend Stockyard to anyone!!!
