flat iron steak - what do I do for Superbowl?

Heard it's a great cut, but never cooked one before. Should I marinate, rub, oven roast, or skillet? Grilling not an option.

Thoughts from the smartest peeps I know? I'm good with preparing the crab legs.

1. I would pan sear it if you have cast iron

grill was my first choice (lol duh) but since you can't, pan seared in a cast iron skillet will still be pretty great. I've only had a flat iron steak once but it was a terrific steak. Tender and flavorful at the place I had it.

In fact, I know I'm gonna be grilling at my grandpa's soon - Thanks for reminding me to look for some flat irons!

2. It's a wonderful cut

Very moist and tender. I usually just broil mine keeping it rare. It's also great on top of stove in a cast iron skillet.

We aren't fans of spices on steak so we tend to go the pure route with just salt and pepper with a side of fried onions with a whisp of balsamic vinegar.

4. Cast iron I can do.

Have an army of perfectly seasoned cast iron to chose from (Southern Liberal thing). Thanks all!
