@jaykayel:  I was just about to suggest either of those methods:) Make sure that if you use your broiler that you use a pan that drains and a separate pan below to catch the drippings. My Mother nearly burned down our house when I was a teenager  because she started a grease fire by not letting it drain properly Tongue Out

Unless you bought a specific broil cut of steak, do not use the broiler. Use the grill pan.Wipe it down with some oil, get it really, really hot and then throw the steak on. It takes a few minutes per side depending on how thick the steak is. You can cover the grill pan with a large pan cover to keep the juices in. Unless you bought filet mignon, in which case, use a griddle (flat pan) rather than a grill pan.

I have always used the method suggestioned in the article UpstateCait posted.

If you read that article, you will notice this method is for filet mignon, like I mentioned in my post. If it’s just steak or steak tips (which I gather it is because it is being marinated) then it is likely a thinner cut and will get WAY overheaded using that method.

Personally a well marinated ribeye in the broiler is my absolute favorite!  About 7 minutes on each side (I think?).  But I learned it from my mom who’s not a pro chef, so could be the wrong way to do it :/

@thenextmrsi:  I don’t know what would be considered a “broiler cut” but I primarily buy porterhouse steaks (or sirloins if I can’t get PH) and the broiler always works great. 6 minutes per side and they’re perfectly medium rare, just how we like ‘em.
