Comment on How to Cook a Steak Perfectly Every Time by Salixisme.

I leave my steak (And also roasted meats) to rest on the burner where the oven vent is located. When the oven is on (as it often is when cooking steak as I usually make oven-roasted fries to go along side them) it is nice and warm. I also cover them with a clean teacloth. That seems to keep them warm, but still allows them to rest

Definitely try the pan on the grill outside – I do that all the time in the summer (and not just for steaks!). I made pancakes on a griddle on the grill last summer… I am not crazy about the amount of smoke searing steak causes – over the winter we had the fire alarm go of 3 times due to me cooking steak…

I like my steak so rare that it can almost moo… I sear for 2-3 minutes each side but don’t put it in the oven as that results in it being too cooked for my liking. I agree about the importance of leaving it to rest though.
