Celebratory Steaks

In home cooking on July 28, 2012 at 12:08 pm

The other day we got some really good news and there was cause for celebration. Not one to be caught unprepared, I had a couple of 18 oz T-Bone steaks at the ready, just waiting for an occasion.

These were a bit thicker than my usual steaks, so I took a slightly different approach to cooking them. First, salt & pepper.


Mmm, thick and juicy. Next, heat some oil on a very hot pan and throw the steak on (be careful that the hot oil doesn’t splatter and burn your arm all over – ouch!)

A few minutes on each side.

Since these were a bit thicker, I put them in the oven at 450F for a few minutes. The result…

These came out medium, a bit more done than I wanted. Next time, I’ll reduce the cooking times to get medium rare. Still, they were pretty tasty – just what the doctor ordered 😉
