1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position; position pizza stone, if using, on rack and heat oven to 500 degrees at least 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, heat large, heavy, ovenproof skillet, preferably cast iron or stainless steel with an aluminum core, for at least 3 minutes over high heat. Generously sprinkle both sides of steak with salt and pepper; add to pan. As soon as steak smokes, about 5 seconds, carefully transfer pan to oven; cook 3 1/2 to 4 minutes, then flip steak and cook until well seared and meat is medium-rare (125 degrees on an instant-read thermometer), 3 1/2 to 4 minutes longer. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest for 5 minutes. Following photograph, slice very thin, on bias against the grain; adjust seasoning with additional salt and pepper, and serve immediately with meat juices.
