If you want your steak to look like you grilled it, use a non stick grill pan or a cast iron grill pan. Last winter I made a steak using the non stick grill pan to brown both sides and then finished the cooking in the oven. I used a 2 1/2 to 3 inch thick strip steak which served three people (one who liked medium, one medium rare and one rare). I sliced the steak and the medium person got the end slices, the med rare the next and the rare the middle. It was perfect for all. This winter, I will try your rubs for added flavor. They sound very good.

Thanks, mom!

the steak is also good rubbed with harissa (this idea including the boriling comes from Urban Italian)

Thanks for the idea!

These recipes look delish- but I was also hoping maybe you could do a video or a post on how to broil a steak for those without a good technique? Every time I try it comes out over done and chewy! Thank You.

We've thought about doing videos like this -- glad to know someone might watch them!

I love the pans you are broiling -- as they can go on the table, too. Where are they from?
Amanda H. December 13, 2009
Thanks. The aluminum one is a used sizzle pan that I got at one of the restaurant supply stores on the Bowery. The black iron pan is made by Lodge, a pretty common brand, and I bought it years ago at Zabar's.

How do you two cook sans aprons? I'd be a mess after pan searing. But I'm a mess after cooking pretty much anything... :) I've lost so many shirts to splatters of hot oil.

The camera isn't high-def enough to show all the stains on our shirts. That's why we wear dark colors!
