Hey Guys, Thanks 4 all your help, I have never come across so many different ways of cooking the perfect steak, some of the ideas are very close to what i do, and some are very different, but I must state, that I still prefer med-med well, I cant stand rare, but everyone to their likeing though ay!, and Michael in FTW, yes I agree, all cuts of meat are different, and should be cooked appropiatly to there cut, and how u like it, BUT, I love Med-- Med Well Done, we all have our preferences and I dont class it as ruining it or screwing it up as you say, your preference is yours, I would NEVER eat a rare steak, like some other people on here wouldnt, and some other people LOVE it, your choice and mine, all is different, PLUS I live in Australia, and we do have different cuts of meat from each other, so we cant comment on each others way or choice of "THE PERFECT STEAK " just be thankful and greatful that so many people want to help and have so many different ideas. I love trying ideas from all over the place, I love trying new foods and new ways of cooking. I thank everyone for helping out, it gives me heaps of different ways to cook. In Australia I love Porterhouse,Rump,Rib-eye ( very tender ), Rib fillet, all thick cut of coarse, but you dont get it thick cut unless you ask for it, plus lamb and pork are in this equation as well, I LOVE pork, and a good cut of lamb, no fat though. So please keep the ideas coming everyone, i LOVE THEM ALL, THANKS HEAPS From SpiritWolf in Aussie land.

Choose your favorite cut and follow this method. It creates quite a bit of smoke in your kitchen, but comparisons to steak houses will be made. I have done this with filte, NY Strip, and Ribeye. All are excellent.

I have a related question for anyone who may know. I would like to use the same method on my outdoor grill to save th3 smoke in the house and actually get up closer to 600 degrees or higher. If so I would like to use olive oil instead of canola oil. Since I will be outside, i don't care about the lower smoke point of olive oil, but is there any other problem with using olive oil at such high heat?

Unhealthy compounds form when an oil exceeds its smokepoint.

And you destroy any flavor the olive oil would have at that temp too.

Don't bother with the olive oil for this application.

for me, the perfect cut of steak is the bone-in ribeye cut. there's nothing more tasty than the meat near the bone.

i season with a salt & pepper/garlic powder & brown sugar combination, and i cook in a combination of olive oil + clarified butter on a med to med high temperature. follow-up with a quick roasting in a 375 F pre-heated oven for 3-5 minutes.

let sit for about 5 min... and have at it.

Hope I'm not being disloyal but this method works great every time. My son makes them this way when they can afford steak,(college boy)! Go to recipezaar and type in #164780 in the search box. I could retype the recipe but his notations are great. This man knows how to cook steaks!

"Mine is rub a little oil on both sides and slap onto a screaming hot grill - but...cooked rare, then sprinkle with s&P - so mine perfect would certainly not be yours. [/QUOTE]

But it sure would be mine, cjs! I like mine burnt on the outside and rare on the inside...what they call "Philidelphia style". As for seasoning? Salt, pepper and a little garlic is all I need.
If you see me reaching for the Heinz 57 sauce, it means you've over-cooked my steak.

Is Philadelphia Style what they call Black and Blue?

I haven't been able to eat rare rare steak since I was pregnant 30some years ago. Now I eat them MR and also prefer a ribeye on the bone, seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled 5 min on one side 3 on the other.

This echoes my feelings exactly. There is a good reason why many good steakhouses will not guarantee the results if steaks are ordered cooked more than medium rare. It tends to make the meat tougher when you cook it longer and it starts to dry it out.

Order "Bistecca alla Fiorentina" ( a huge porterhouse intended to feed 4) in Florence or Tuscany (Italy) and you will get it medium rare. They don't even ask how you want it...

My favorite steak is also a rib-eye black chef, I use the Montreal
seasoning, sear both sides and put it in a 400 degree oven for
about 7 mins. Ummmm
