Crap...after all the moaning I do about steak places overcooking my steak, I go and overcook my steak at home.
I made sure the pan was smoking hot before throwing on the steaks.
Scooping and basting the steaks in their own grease and butter/margarine.
Turn the steaks on their sides and fry the grisle
Then let the steaks rest a bit before cutting.
And voila....overcooked my #&$%@ steaks. I spent too long playing with the butter bath I guess, and ended up cooking them medium-rare to medium. Blagh!
Oh well, I'll try again some other time. Here are a couple of shots of when I did cook some steaks to the way I like them:
These were perfect, although it would have been nicer if I used the cut of beef from the top of this post. Oh well, trial and error.
