Awesome recipe, there is a little trick to make any steak more tender no matter what cooking method you use. Coffee is the answer. Now when I say coffee, people automatically think fresh coffee, or coffee grounds. NO will not work, now fresh coffee for Sunday ham breakfast poured over the ham as it finishes cooking(AWESOME). Now for steaks you want to season with salt and fresh cracked pepper some garlic then instant coffee like you would season with garlic. Light coat goes long way. And once you add the coffee to your steak you can call it Awake-A-Steak. Awesome must try. Coffee is a natural tenderizer for steaks and also it adds a caramelized flavor to ham. You will not be disappointed, if you don't want caffeine just buy Decaffeinated. Use to this recipe you will not be disappointed, I am a son of a 5-star chief. ENJOY

I was disappointed with this cooking method. I followed it to a "T" and these were my issues: I did not get the sear i like on the steak, the lovely fat on the steak did not render at all and was quite unappetizing, and the steak was cooked unevenly (which I can live with) but it was overall tough. But the. Again I do not like the way Outback cookies their steaks so, there ya go. I'm not normally a picky person but please please if you love your steak and you cannot grill it, pan sear it instead and the results will be worth it.

Last week I bought two 1 1/2 inch steaks at Publix and brought them home. I froze one for this week, and cook the other using a low and slow method I found online. I was incredibly disappointed with the low and slow steak, which came out very tough and was worried that the meat was poor quality. Tonight I tried this method. I used a stainless steel skillet and seasons my steak with one of the KC seasoning steak mixes including black pepper garlic and sea salt. This steak is tender and perfectly rare and delicious. Mind you that this steak was frozen for a week and thawed in the refrigerator overnight, and it still came out better than the other method.

Really good and Easy. I have a cast iron skillet and it worked perfectly. I like it better than broiling and the clean up is much easier (no broiler to clean up, only a skillet)

Very easy to follow directions that make an excellent steak. We made this as stated with lots of pepper and just a bit of salt because that is how we like them. We will definitely make this again.
