You can cook almost any cut of steak using a cast iron skillet. There's no excuse not to own one, you can get a nice Lodge brand one at Walmart for less than $20. Sear on high heat on the stovetop, then finish in a 450 degree oven until done to your liking.

 Also, an oven's broiler is an upside-down grill. . .

Here's video instructions detailing what CR1chard is talking about.

as much as i hate to admit it, this method almost always comes out better than grilling it. it just doesn't dry out as much.

For pan frying, I usually go with flank steak

Just seared some strips in pan then finished in oven last weekend.  they came out looking perfect - evenly cooked outside with even margins all the way around.  should have taken pics.  pan seared for 2 minutes per side, finished in 400 degree oven for 11 minutes on a rack set on a cookie sheet.

Some may call this sacrilege ... The air circulation in my apt is poor and the smell of whatever I cook lingers a bit. I've been using a cast iron press lately. Perfect searing and cooking time reduced. The steaks are not too thick, though.
