"Ever since chronic pain took over my life my memory has suffered. I have to have instructions for a lot of things. So here is what I use for searing steaks on the rare occasion that we eat them. This tastes great, but is for only if there are one or two people eating. I tried to search and couldn't find anything else like this on here. NOTE: THE COOK TIME IS VERY APPROXIMATE, AS YOU NEED TO GO BY A THERMOMETER TO TAKE AN INTERNAL TEMPERATURE OF THE MEAT. I WILL LIST THE TEMPERATURES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE INSTRUCTIONS. IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the steak on the counter for at least 30 minutes to get it to room temperature.

Step 2

When ready, heat a cast iron skillet on high heat for five minutes.

Put the T Bone in the hot cast iron skillet. Sear on each side for 3 minutes.

I was really excited about trying this recipe. I watch the food network chefs cook steaks all the time. A lot of your instruction was good but there was a problem. Searing for 3 minutes on each side in a skillet on high was too long. My steaks came out burnt in spots with a bitter flavor. Looking up recipes it looks like it should have only been seared 1 minute on medium high. The other thing I notices is that the butter should have been listed as unsalted butter.
