Ingredients

  • 2 (8-ounce) New York strip steaks (about 1 inch thick), trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cracked mixed peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Add steaks to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut each steak in half.
