1 Preheat the oven to 375*. Let the steak come to room temp. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, rub butter over both sides of the steak. Generously rub steak with seasoning. If needed, cut the steak into chunks so it will fit in the pan.

2 Add the grapeseed oil to the skillet. Substitute olive oil if no grapeseed oil is available, I like to use grapeseed oil for its high smoke point. Just make sure to have the exhaust fan on high. Place steak into the cast iron skillet and cook for 2 minutes per side. Turn off the heat.

3 Place cast iron into the oven for 5 minutes for rare, 6 minutes for medium rare, or 7 minutes for medium. Check temp with a meat thermometer, Steak will rise 5 degrees as it rests. (Remove at 120* for rare, 130* for medium rare, and 140* for medium). Remove from the oven and place on a cutting board. Let rest for 5 minutes. Slice steak into strips.

4 While the steak rests, warm the tortillas and prep any taco toppings.
