Re: Who Cooks?

If it isn't thin (less than 1 1/4) get your grill or cast iron skillet as hot as you possibly can. 2 minutes on both sides. Then pop it in a 450 degree over for 3-4 more minutes. The grill/pan will sear it and the dry heat in the overn will finish it evenly and leave it moist. This is the way to do it if you want to cook a steak like a genuine $100 steak house. They always sear and finish in oven.

This is craziness. A steak should be cooked as fast as shit. Slowly cooking it will dry it out. I know how to cook one thing. Steak. HOT AND FAST. Sear the living crap out of it.

That's what I was saying. A slow cooked steak never gets anywhere near rare.

True, you want to sear the juices in. Unless you like eating shoe leather.

I have a friend who likes his steak well done. That's just criminal.

Re: Who Cooks?

Not sure if anyone's posted this yet but I'll go ahead with my method.

Pull the steaks out at least an hour before you want to cook them. Go ahead and apply kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper liberally (no, the salt won't draw all of the juice out as some people claim, more likely to if you do it RIGHT before cooking as the steak won't have time to reabsorb any).

Cooking time really depends on the thickness of the steak. If it's an inch or under you might be able to do it all on the stovetop. If bigger you might want to finish in the oven.

What I do is pre-heat the oven to about 500 with a cast iron pan inside. Once it hits 500 bring the pan out to a burner on high and let it continue to heat a bit, 3-5 mins or so. Go ahead and use some sort of fat/oil, I like butter, yeah it's gonna burn because of the lower sizzle point, but it will give a great sear on the steak and doesn't taste bad. Some people will use olive or grapeseed oil or whatever. Sear steak on each side for about 2 mins (unless you have a thinner cut), with weight and/or lid if you want. Go ahead and move it to the oven for anywhere from 2-8 mins or so depending on cut and doneness. You could also broil it (I tend to do this more with tenderloins and ribeyes). I pull mine out a bit early because it will continue to cook up 5 degrees or so after coming out. Immediately transfer to clean surface (plate/platter, etc) and cover with a foil tent. After about 8-10 mins rest, enjoy.

Re: Who Cooks?

Great advice guys. Truly. The steaks were awesome.

I guess if I had to weigh in on who gave the most helpful advice - well let's put it this way, if this was American Idol, tonight was FRPLG's night.

Although I used a little from each person, FRPLG and Matty gave me the best cooking technique, I suppose. Oh, TMC and I forgot who else, the thumb thingy test worked too! Thanks to all.

I guess we can now hand this thread over to some newb who doesn't know how to cook mashed potatoes.
