Set a large cast iron pan or griddle over high heat and let this heat up for 1-2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan and let it heat for 1 minute. Add the steak, frying on each side for 3 minutes, or to desired doneness. 3 minutes on each side will yield a medium rare steak, depending on the thickness of the cut.
