Do I need to pan sear smaller cuts of meat before transferring them?

Answer:

Many recipes from cooking school required us to pan sear, then transfer to an oven to finish it to doneness. Finish your meat in this same manner because it will cook for a relatively short period of time, and without the pan sear, the meatmay not get the beautiful caramelization you are looking for.
