That's the basics I have to know also.
I prefer to do my steaks on the grill, however if you don't own one (and I didn't have one when I was first married). . . .
If your oven has a broiler, and if you own a broiling pan (has a rack in it to catch the fat drippings). . . position the top rack of your oven so it is fairly close to the top heating element. Turn the oven to broil. Place the steak on the rack in broiler pan (the best cut to buy is NY Sirloin or NY Strip Steaks - look for some marbeling in the meat - it will be more tender). Keep the oven door ajar and keep a very close eye on the steak! It will make lots of spattering and popping sounds as the fat hits the heating element. Don't worry. Just be mindful that it may flare up (I would get your hubby to help you!!!! Especially if he is demanding that you make him steak when you don't own a grill! Men can cook too!!!!).
Flip the steak over after about 5 min. and cook the other side. (Be sure to remove from oven first using a potholder!). You will need to cut into the meat to see if it is cooked inside
Also - you may want to season your steak before cooking with some garlic salt, pepper, or other seasonings of choice. I always go sparingly and serve with steak sauce (like A-1).
