How to cook a steak.

Because I was a vegetarian for many years, cooking meat is not my forte. Now that I eat (and love) meat, I tend to buy things that are more difficult to ruin (chicken thighs, ground beef/lamb) and steer clear of expensive cuts. But, I just bought a sirloin strip steak from a local farm and would like to do it justice. It's about a pound, and 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" thick. Any suggestions? Unfortunately, our grill is out of commission - so oven and stove top are the only options. (Thanks in advance!)
