Take out steak and allow it sit out on the counter for about 20 minutes. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 450 and place the cast iron skillet on the stove with the burner turned all the way up. About 5 minutes prior to cooking, apply a generous amount of salt to both sides of the steak. Once everything has set and is all rocket hot, slap the steak on the skillet for 2-4 minutes depending on your cut and your preferred done-ness. (A 1.5 inch thick steak will cook to med rare at 2 minutes, and a touch over medium at 4.) At the end of the predetermined time, flip the steak, and place the whole thing in the oven for another 2-4 minutes. Allow the steak to rest for about 10 minutes prior to eating.
Why not be considerate? From the steak's point-of-view, it's pure torture to wait, as the meat concentrates on the fact that it is about to be devoured. Don't wait; put it out of its misery forthwith.
