Cooking steak

I agree with some things in this article about cooking steak, but not others.

- Let the steak warm up to room temperature first
- Use *lots* of salt (coarse, kosher) and pepper (fresh ground)
- Cook the steak on its ends. Do this first if you don't oil the meat, do it whenever if you do.

- He goes about and flipping the steak lots of times. Don't bother. If you like steak rare, one flip is plenty. If you want it more done, 3 flips are fine, but you'll want to put it in a hot oven after flip 1.
- I've also found that basting meat does nothing.

Missed point:
Buy really fat steak.

Mmm. Now I'm hungry.
