They were HUGE filets...like 2 1/2 inches thick, 10oz filets....i seared them with grapeseed oil on medium high heat for 2 minutes on each side....not just top and bottom, because they were too thick

then finished em in a 400 degree oven for like 15 minutes....they were medium

i topped them with a mixture of 1 part roquefort cheese to 3 parts butter and wrapped them in foil for 10 minutes

They were sensational, everyone was raving...what a great feeling. really made my night.

way to go, legs.

did you notice any flavor from the grapeseed oil? or were the steaks just so darn good, it didn't matter?

Grapeseed oil has a very neutral flavor. It doesn't impart any flavors to foods, which is why it's a great choice for things like salad dressings, infused oils, etc. because you can let the other ingredients shine through.
