We just got a lodge cast iron skillet and we're going to attempt to make some steak tips tonight. All of the recipes I've seen suggest brushing the steak with olive oil, but I know olive oil has a relatively low smoke point. Also, most cast iron users recommend getting a good sear and then throwing the pan in the oven for a few minutes. Because of this, what do you guys recommend using instead of olive oil? Would butter or ghee be a good, safer altervative? Thanks for the help!
