Default Re: Steaks in CI - first timer seeking suggestions

The best steak I've personally ever cooked was using the reverse sear method. Here's one link describing the process, but you can look for others and come up with a method that works for you.

http://www.meatchurch.com/blogs/reci...e-seared-steak

The basic idea is that you start your steak in a very low oven and slowly bring it up to temp. Then you sear it hard and fast in a smoking hot cast iron skillet...all while basting it. It's only in the skillet for a minute or so per side. It ends up with a medium rare throughout, and has a great sear on the outside. But you don't overcook any of the meat trying to get the center of the steak warmed up.

A bit high maintenance, but it's really worth it if you have the time.

Pork chops = SUCCESS!

I never heard of "pork ribeyes" before unless they are just called something else usually, but they were the right thickness I wanted: not too thick, not too thin, and no bones. So I gave them a whirl, and they were fantastic! Super tender, tasty, and all cooked in the skillet (no oven). I also refriend up some Lima beans left over from last night, and the fam was angry ... that there weren't more for seconds.

Thanks. We could probably meet in the middle a lot faster than the postal service.
