- Two 8- to 10-ounce top loin boneless strip steaks, cut 1 inch thick, at room temperature
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over high heat until very hot. Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Add half the butter to one side of skillet, and immediately place steak on top; repeat with remaining butter and steak. Do not move meat.
