Make red wine sauce for steak
Place the steak, standing up on the strip of fat, in the pan and hold it with tongs until the fat renders and the pan is slick, about 2 minutes.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper or season to taste.
Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat.
Remove the steak from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking.
