the wind chill tonight here is quite heinous (they're claiming 50mph gusts), so i was cooking inside. the beefmasters around this place finally convinced me to try pan-searing and then finishing the steak in the oven:
Pan seared steak?
so that ribeye i've had in the deep freeze for a while got to come out tonight and really shine. big fresh baked potato coated in olive oil & sea salt, wrapped in foil & baked while oven was heating up, plus made some sauteed mushrooms & red onion in the frond from pan-searing the steak. just dreamy, even tho it was my first time doing this, so the steak was medium instead of rare.
