Comment on How to Cook a Steak Perfectly Every Time by Crlee.
I just “Stumbled” here, great app!
If you have a grill us it. The best is a non gas and use charcoled wood (NOT briquettes !). Throw in a little water soaked hichory or mesquite chips to taste but don’t over do it. Make it HOT and sear it just as in this article. You want to cook it as quickly as possible. You want to achieve a random flame up on each side but be prepared to move it to the side if the grease over fuels the fire.
As you can see the grill is an art form, so it’s great to discover an indoor alternative with the skillet / oven method. Now if I can figure out a way to disable the smoke alarm ;). Maybe a good reason to defer the pepper application after the cooking process as mentioned above.
