I like to eat really lean cuts of steak: top round and top sirloin usually. I have a ribbed cast iron skillet on a gas stove.
What's the best way to cook these steaks rare?
-I'd like to avoid burning the steaks. Don't like eating charcoal.
-I'd like to avoid having the steaks stick to the pan.
Should I use some sort of oil or just throw the steak on? Heat up the pan on high heat first? Lower the heat at some point during cooking?
