Even if they are a perfect, delicious, medium-rare, it never fails to fill my house with smoke. I can't stand the leftover smell! We always have to eat with the windows open. I've done both cast-iron and grill pan methods. I typically cook on med-high heat. I season them, but don't use oil in the pan.
(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
