well, i have to say the steak came out all right last night. it was a very thick steak, so i sliced it into 1/2" strips and broiled for about 4 mins. they came out a juicy medium, and i enjoyed them!
for the most part, i broil steaks in a toaster oven. usually marinated beforehand in Italian dressing.
i think i'm going to convert to medium. however, dh, still wants his done to a med-well, well.
thanks for the welcome, everyone! and for not making me feel stupid. ;)
i'm off to browse the forums.
