Start by getting your cast iron skillet up to heat by setting your stove on high for five minutes. While the skillet is heating up, season your steaks with salt and pepper. When your skillet is hot, put 1/2 tsp. butter in your pan and immediately top with a steak. Repeat with your second steak. Allow the steaks to cook (don’t move them) until you get a nice golden crust that forms, which should take 3-4 minutes. Then flip and allow to cook on the other side for 2-4 minutes more depending on your desired doneness. When done, transfer to a cutting board and allow to rest for at least five minutes (this is super important!) before slicing.
Last, it’s time to make your steak sauce. Do NOT wash your skillet when your steaks are done. Instead, turn the skillet to high heat and add your wine. While the wine starts to simmer, scrape the yummy browned bits from the bottom and continue to simmer for a few minutes until the mixture starts to reduce. Lastly, swirl in the butter and allow to simmer for another minute before drizzling over your steaks. Yum!
