    One side of the steak got over done, but I set the timer and focused on making sides to go with this. I should have kept a closer eye on it. Even with one side over done, my husband said the steak had great flavor. I used the corn starch option instead of the flour, as we have a gluten intolerant family member.

    I used 1 clove of fresh garlic as I had no dried stuff. Still turned out a really great taste on our steaks. Will make again.
