Yes thir - please don't hut me with the pan - PLEASE !!!

Damn it - just had my teeth cleaned and am unable to eat some real meat - make mine cooked rare please. No wine though - A glass of ice cold tea is plenty good enough for me.

'97 was a better year for that wine... just sayin. But 96 was good too.
:-)

I just had dinner, a burnt steak and now I want another one after reading this!

Eh, no thanks. I cook my steaks on a grill. The potatoes go there too. No pan-fried steak tastes as good as a steak grilled over mesquite coals.

I noted that you only turned it once. The people that are still alive that keep flipping steaks over and over have no idea how close to death they were. It stops being a steak and becomes shoe leather, especially if the cheap asses buy a thin piece of meat to begin with.
Your instructions are spot on mate.

Pretty good recipe ......'cept you cooked it 'till it's near burnt and what's with the taters? Pintos with mine please and tortillas to sop with. Sweet tea if I've gotta go back to work and beer if I ain't.Wine is for communion or you ran outta Jim Beam.

In order to buy a steak of that size and quality in the the UK I have to take out a second bloody mortage. And don't get me started on the price of cigarettes -after our last budget a pack of 20 now costs just under $10.00.

Mind you we do have at least a couple of million multiple wifed, bearded, head banging Slaves of Allah and their prodigious spawn to support plus the 11-12 billion £ we annually contribute to the bank accounts of the first world plutocrats and third world kleptocrats importing them in the name of 'Foreign Aid' and social justice.

Obviously I am not amused by this and as I don't have the the protection of your First and and Second Amendments to the Constitution I am probably fucked if the Thought Police trace this comment to me so hang in there, cousins, I don't make the mistakes we have.

Nope on how to cook a steak. This is out of the box but the first thing is to boil some water the get an ice chest. Put mix of hot water and cold water to get water temp to 145 degrees. Put steak in plastic zip lock bag, suck out all the air. Put steak in cooler with 145 degree water. Keep steak in water until steak is 140 degrees. Steak is now cooked to med rare perfectly but looks a little weird. Now heat iron skillet to 500 Degrees and sear steak 25 seconds a side for 1" thick. Enjoy.

Fuckin' A. Don't need the wine but a baked spud is necessary (vanilla porter would be my choice). Mushrooms and onions are OK. Butter is always called for.

Hey, nothin' wrong with some garlic on that steak.
Other than that, you've pretty much got it down just right.

My dad, now he wouldn't allow ANYTHING.
No salt, no pepper, no nothin' - just meat and fire.

And the fucking pan better fucking be fucking seasoned cast iron because fucking teflon is not fucking tough enough.

Teflon: Fuck, the french fucking fucker's fucked.

And perhaps, if you wish, you might think of using a gas stove.

I use Lawry's seasoning salt....other than that, it's fuckin' perfect...
