I usually just get the grill hot as possible and throw them on for as little time as possible (moo!). But today I got some amazing T-Bones that are over 2 inches thick and I have never cooked steaks this thick before. What should I do to avoid completely burnt on the outside and completely raw on the inside considering the thickness?

I like em medium rare... tending on the rare side.

And I won't put anything on nice meat like this besides salt and pepper so don't even bother with that.

Thanks.

Thanks GenErick.

Rickson, I have heard that before but I am not sure I want to try the oven yet... I'll think about it.

OK well these people expect me to grill on a fucking electric outdoor concoction of some sort. I didn't realize anyone with a house didn't have a fucking gas grill at least.

Anyhow, considering this development I will try my hand at the oven for the first time. How long do I sear it for before going to the oven? About how long should it be in the oven for medium rareness? (Just so I know when to check the temp--they at least have a meat thermometer.)

After another look, I would say 2" thick, maybe a bit over but pretty close.

I will follow your directions Rickson. I hope you can handle that responsibility.

I hope their Foreman grill gets hot enough for a proper sear. You might be better off with a cast iron skillet on the stove & finishing in the oven.

:-(

OK I might try that instead. They do have a gas range. Thanks! Would the time be the same? Do I just get the pan as hot as possible?

I knew the room temperature one already but thanks. It is good advice.

Pan Seared Rib Eye
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown
Show:  Good Eats
Episode:  Steak Your Claim
 
 
 
1 boneless rib eye steak, 1 1/2-inch thick
Canola oil to coat
Kosher salt and ground black pepper

 

Place 10 to 12-inch cast iron skillet in oven and heat oven to 500 degrees. Bring steak(s) to room temperature.

When oven reaches temperature, remove pan and place on range over high heat. Coat steak lightly with oil and season both sides with a generous pinch of salt. Grind on black pepper to taste.

Immediately place steak in the middle of hot, dry pan. Cook 30 seconds without moving. Turn with tongs and cook another 30 seconds, then put the pan straight into the oven for 2 minutes. Flip steak and cook for another 2 minutes. (This time is for medium rare steaks. If you prefer medium, add a minute to both of the oven turns.)

Remove steak from pan, cover loosely with foil, and rest for 2 minutes. Serve whole or slice thin and fan onto plate.

Sounds easy enough... but I don't know if I can get both steaks in the pan at once. I guess I can do them one by one. Thanks.

 Sami, that steak you made is perfection itself.  Much better than most steakhouses would be able to do.  They burn it on the outside.

Thanks!

I'm not a fan of the pure carbon crust either.

i usually just throw it on the grill. once the blood starts coming out of the top of the steak, i flip it. when the blood comes out of the top again, it's done.

Well thanks for all of the ideas but it looks like these cavemen don't have a cast iron skillet either. I will try the electric grill to the oven.

Still going with Rickson's directions (350) above. Thanks.

Check the videos from the BBQ Pit Boys. They are the best thing to happen to meat and youtube.

I am going to attempt to cook them. It won't be as good as Sami's but I do what I have to do.

Grill broke anyhow. Had to do the whole thing in the oven. Surprisingly, they turned out great, but it is hard to fuck up meat that good.
