O-cha, not sure what you're implying about eating steaks at medium. I used to get medium rare but it'd be such a hit/miss depending on the restaurant and I hate sending dishes back so I learn to play it safe and order medium - worst case I get medium well which I can live with.
* Set steaks out on a clean surface until they reach room temperature throughout, 12 hours.

* Preheat oven to 500.

* Put a cast-iron skillet large enough to fit steaks comfortably into oven and heat for 20 minutes.

* Rub both sides of steaks with a little olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper.

* Add steaks to hot skillet and cook in oven until well browned on bottom, 8 minutes.

* Turn steaks and cook in oven on second side, 56 minutes for rare, 78 minutes for medium rare.

* Remove steaks from skillet and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
I have strong opinions about things that don't matter.
