Question Hanging steel door

Have a shed we are remodeling. Someone gave me a HEAVY steel door, but not prehung (no frame). I'm not sure how to construct the door frame. I'm worried about how to keep door from pulling out of frame due to weight.

Can someone describe how to construct doorway?

Usually steel doors are lighter than their solid wood counterpart.
Since it is a shed I would just screw the hinges directly to the stud. Allow yourself enough width so you won't need to mortise the hinges.
