Transfer skillet to preheated oven and turn on the broiler. Allow the steak to cook under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked to your desired temperature (115 to 120°F for rare steak, 120 to 125°F for medium-rare steak, 130 to 135°F for medium steak, and 140 to 145°F for medium-well steak). Let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain and serving alongside some Chimichurri sauce.
