    This is the only way I cook steaks now. Learned this recipe from Alton Brown's show Good Eats on the Food Network.

      The only way to make a steak indoors. Be sure to use decently-thick steaks; thin ones will overcook before the crust forms.

      This was my first time cooking a steak and it worked for me! Not perfect but anything takes practice. My steaks were two different thickness but they were both good enough to eat.

      This recipe interested me because of the use of cast iron cookware, which I love. That, and it's winter in Minnesota, so gas grilling, charcoal grilling is out and a broiler ruins good meat. Let me just say----dynamite! This will be my go-to method of steaks! I followed the easy to follow directions to a "T". Yes, there was some smoke, but my oven vent handled it. There was a lingering cooking odor but hey, steak smells good! They turned out lovely, with a nice "bark" and uniformly red interior.
