Comment on How to Cook a Steak Perfectly Every Time by Woot.

Great article! I’m officially craving steak. I’m a rare to medium rare guy myself but my wife puts me to shame with her love for extremely rare steaks. She practically wants the outside warm but is completely fine with a cold center and is very particular about it being that way. I’ve over cooked (medium rare) her steaks many times due to the fact that I just can’t bring myself to pulling a steak off as early as she wants me to. I’m not against that myself, I just want my steak completely warm. What changes to the cook times would you suggest that would make her happy? Maybe a minute in the pan and a minute in the oven?
