Steak and Potatoes

I am blogging this entry just because it was a yummy meal and I cooked the steaks perfectly so I'm sharing the method.

2 steaks. I never use NY Strip. Its my least favorite cut
2 baking potatoes
Sour cream
Fresh Dill
Trader Joes beer bread (Its a mix they had a few months ago)
Olive Oil
Grill seasoning (Ours is called Montreal)

Scrub potatoes, poke holes in the skins all around the potato, lightly coat in olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Put in a 350 degree oven for about an hour-hour and a half. This will depend on your type of potato and size of your potato. For your potatoes make a sour cream and dill sauce by chopping fresh dill and mixing with your sour cream.

Trader Joes beer bread was made simply by mixing 1 can of beer together with the mix, then it was put in a loaf pan, and topped with some melted butter. Baked according to the directions on the box

Now for the STEAKS.
Coat a large heavy stainless steal pan in olive oil. Heat the olive oil until it waves but is not smoking.
Season one side of the steaks and put the seasoned side facedown in the skillet.
Leave the steak alone for 3 minutes.
Season the other side of the steak and flip it over and let it cook for three minutes. Do not move steaks around in the pan.
Put the entire steak skillet into the oven at 400 degrees
Pull steak out after about 7 minutes for a medium doneness. 10 minutes for medium well doneness.
Let those steaks rest for about 10 minutes
