Cook on its side to let all the fat render out.
Then cook on medium in its own fat - flipping every 30 seconds or so - until you get a nice caramelized crust. Don't add salt/pepper yet.
When you're almost there, take off the skillet and add your salt and pepper. Throw some crush garlic coves (skin on) and some thyme into the pan as well as a pat of butter (don't be stingy with that one). Let the garlics brown just a little bit and throw your steak back on.
Do the finishing touches on each side. Let the steak rest. And then you can commiserate with your gf because you will then both know what an orgasm in your mouth feels like.
Or you can just burn each side and leave the center raw like these folks are suggesting.
