For years I was convinced that the only way to cook a great steak, and well, most types of meat, was on the grill. And since there was no way to have a grill in my small New York City apartment, I restricted my meat eating to restaurants and weekends visiting my parents (and their grill!) in the suburbs.
A few years ago, I experimented with cooking a steak in my cast iron skillet. Despite my initial skepticism, this forever changed the way I cook meat!
