How to Cook a Steak in the Oven

Valentine’s Day is Friday and Safeway has a fabulous price on bone-in ribeye steaks this week, just $5.47/lb.  with a new Just for U Digital Coupon available Friday through Sunday.  Since it’s not really grilling weather, I am going to make my ribeye steaks in the oven.  My family has told me that they actually prefer the steak cooked in the oven because it retains it’s juices and yields and more flavorful steak!   It’s really easy to do and all you need is a cast iron skillet and a hot oven.

I have personally cooked steaks in the oven many times and my biggest tip is make sure you turn on the fan in your hood or on your range because there is a fair amount of smoke generated by the sizzling fat in the skillet.  So, avoid setting off the smoke alarm and turn on the fan before you open the oven door.
