Rib-eye Steak Dinner

I like steak. Its simple, delicious, and really quick and easy to make as well. All you need is a good cut of beef (rib-eye for me), a skillet, and salt and pepper. For this dinner, we made a red wine reduction sauce as well, along with baked potatoes and  salad. The salad dressing was a caesar-esque dressing whipped up in minutes using available ingredients.
Note about the baked potatoes: we didn't actually bake them, but steamed them in a pressure cooker for 15 minutes. Its a lot faster than baking, and the resultant potatoes were soft, fluffy and absolutely delicious. Remember to leave the pressure cooker to depressurize naturally, as apparently fast-releasing might cause skin-on potatoes to explode. We have not (yet) verified that this is true.

Rub a bit of oil on the steaks. Season liberally with salt and pepper, making sure you massage it well into the meat. Leave aside for at least 5 minutes.

Put a skillet on the stove on high heat. Place the steaks into the pan to sear. Once half-done, flip it around to sear the other side. Remove from pan once required doneness is reached.

Note: If your steak is quite thick, you might need to finish it in the oven. Put the skillet (make sure your skillet is oven-safe!) in a 120°C oven till done.

Place the steak aside to rest for about 10 minutes, covering loosely with aluminum foil. Reserve the fond on the pan for the sauce.
