You can slather some soft butter on top and stick the steak high in your oven near the broiler and broild for a very short time. Quickly remove, let sit for a minute and "voilá" - crust on your steak!

How I like my steak...

I like to eat my steak medium. I think that with medium-well it is a little too dry for me, and with medium-rare it is too bloody!

Right! It needs to go "mooo" when you put your fork in it.

Very rare. A French waiter I knew called it Bleu. The fact is, I like raw beef as well. People keep telling me how bad it is for me, but I'd rather not eat any at all than eat gray meat.

Rare the first day, medium the second. I tend to never finish a steak in one sitting unless it's really small or fillet mignon. It it's rare when I first order it, I can take it home and reheat it without it turning into shoe leather.

Rare to Medium Rare. I just do not like it cold in the middle. The only thing is hamburgers. I do not care how good the meat it, it has to Medium Well to Well. This is strange because I taste the raw meat to check the seasoning. Something I learned from my grandmother. But, we raised our own cattle at that time, so I have stopped doing that.
