I hate this "live and learn" part of life.
Hey, doesn't this belong under the d'oh, moment thread?

OK, I tried a new sear method the other week, one where you preheat the pan in the oven before putting it on the stovetop and slapping the steak in.
So after I took it out of the 500F oven, moved it to the flaming burner, took my mitts off and went to get the oil, I noticed the pan wasn't quite centered on the burner.....
Fortunately it was a light handle grab and I hit callous.

Give us this day our daily bacon.
