    When I saw you had responded to my post, I swore it was going to be making fun of me for watching Hells Kitchen. :D

    Oh hell no. I like those productions too. Top Chef is another one. The one where that guy makes over a restaurant is one of my favorites. I love to hear his reasons that show his marketing knowledge. Reminds me of what my dad would say about, "Don't ever fuck with a man at HIS game."

    I almost reported this thread, because certainly you cant be serious.

    no just sear it on the stove top with a flat skillet 4 minutes on both sides.

    Oh I'm serious. Never cooked steak without a grill. Heard people use the oven. I know my uncle cooks beef tenderloin in oven.

    I did some the other night on a cast iron griddle type deal I threw on my butane burner outside. I find when it's done right the smoke in the kitchen is a breath cutter so I prefer outside. I recently bought the thing and was wanting to try.

    I bought it at that Farmer's Auction I sometimes go to on Saturdays. Got it for 3 bucks.

    Looks kind of like this one.

    No good. I won't have a viable outdoor area

    So there's basically a split. Some say just sear it (MM being the most adamant), and some saying sear then broil. Steve however says just sear it. I guess I"ll have to try both ways.

    Well, I sear it in a very hot cast iron skillet and then turn down the heat and finish cooking in the same pan. If you're trying to cook a thicker steak more well done, then I can see the logic of moving the pan to the oven to finish it with gentler heat.

    I do sear but "searing" is not what most believe. I like the "markings" it makes. For some reason the presentation seems to affect my taste buds.
