Cast iron is my preferred method of cooking a steak. I only crave grilled every once in a while now. Cast iron gives you a better steak flavor imo.

I use regular vegetable oil myself, i don't like olive oil steaks. The key is to barely put any oil in the pan, you will get a much better sear that way. After both sides have a good crust, then throw a half stick of butter in the pan and baste it over and over and over and over until desired doneness.

got an electric smoker for xmas...been reading about reverse sear smoking for thick steaks....partially cook in the smoker, then slap it onto a hot grill to get a good crust to finish it. definitely trying that once my grill is no longer under a few feet of snow.

Finely chop up cilantro and mix with the oil.. its a great, fresh aroma, very popular in Colombia, my personal fave for thin steaks seared fast. Make a 'brush' by slicing kale (Im pretty sure it was kale) stalks lengthwise an inch from the end to apply the cilantro oil or youll melt a regular plasticish brush.

Gordon Ramsey method, this is how I do it, and it is delicious.

As someone who once never went in the kitchen except to eat, this is the first way I learned to cook a steak & I haven't bothered to find another. Works great every time.

I cook pork chops in cast iron like this too. So good. Season with Lawry's and Rosemary, let sit for an hour or so, then put about an 1/8 inch of oil in the bottom of the pan, heat medium/hot. Toss a tablespoon of butter in the pan, then the chops, 5 minutes per side.
Nice and crusty pork chops.
Let them rest in a warm oven, then use the leftover grease to cook home fries, 4-5 potatoes quartered and sliced into 1- 2 inch chunks. Those just need a little salt and pepper when in the pan.
Now I'm hungry.

That sounds good, for pork. I usually lean towards a smoked pork chop, a little less chewy.

You guys ever do a 80% beef/ 20% bacon burger.

Around here we can get 60/40, 40% chorizo burgers. They are so good.

Ive taken bacon and put it in a food processor with some water to make a paste, and then marinate boneless chicken thighs with it. The bacon melds to it, so when you throw it on the smoker it creates a crispy bacon coating on it.....

as for the 20% bacon burgers, ive tried it with raw bacon and cooked bacon, and i find that cooked bacon folded into raw beef is the best way. That way you dont have to overcook the burgers
