Restaurant-quality steak without a grill

It’s winter, and you can’t barbecue outside. Or maybe you just don’t own a bbq. No fear, you can cook up a fantastic steak indoors, if you have a gas stove.

2. Line a pan deep enough to hold juices with aluminum foil.
Place beef loin strip steaks (also known as New York strip steak or strip loin), ¾ inch – 1 inch thick, side by side.

3. Season both sides of each steak with Montreal steak seasoning, to taste. (Montreal steak seasoning contains black pepper, sea salt, crushed red pepper, garlic, paprika.)

5. Turn steaks over and rearrange if necessary, to ensure that all steaks cook to the same degree. Broil for an additional 6  minutesstrip loin steaks

*** When broiling with the oven door partially open, the knobs on your stovetop will likely become very hot. Keep this in mind if you intend to use your stovetop. I like to wear an oven mitt to remind myself not to touch the knobs with my bare hands!

Steaks are now done! (Medium rare to medium)

We like to top our steak with an egg, and serve it with a side of green veggies like bok choy, along with mushrooms and onions sauteed in sherry.
