Bought some ribeyes today. Intend to make them for dinner, but the problem is I don't have access to a grill.
How do I cook these fuckers up in a pan? Don't have cast iron so popping it in the oven is not a good idea with my shitty walmart pans.
If your oven can get to 500 degrees, put some kind of pan for drips on the lower level and put the steaks right on the rack like a grill. Some ovens I have done this and it works great. Others didn't get hot enough really and it didn't work so great.
You don't have to have cast-iron to do the sear & finish in the oven method. However you do have to have an oven-safe pan. As long as there is no plastic or wood on your pan then it should be fine.
You can also use the broiler in your oven.
Your oven probably has a broiler pan. sear in a frying pan, then finish it off in the broiler. Pay close attention to it. The broiler setting on the stove will cook it very quickly.
I am an idiot and completely forgot about the broiler. Shows how often I use the damn thing.
I don't think my pans will be safe to use in the oven because they have those stupid squishy handles that I swear to god seem like they are gonna melt. Would I be able to maybe transfer to a brownie sheet with aluminum foil on it? That's kinda the best choice I've got otherwise.
