Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Whisk together the olive oil, pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Evenly rub one side of each steak with the mixture.

Lay the steaks on the hot grill with the seasoned-side facing up for 2 minutes. Flip and sear the seasoned side about 2 minutes.

Transfer steaks to preheated oven; bake to desired doneness, seasoned-side up, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well. Allow to rest 3 to 4 minutes before serving.
