Cast Iron Skillet Steak



This is Adam Roberts aka The Amateur Gourmet's food2.com video on cooking a steak. Besides being funny it is a good technique and he gets bonus karma for using a cast iron skillet. 

One of the more common search phrases that brings people to this blog is something like "cast iron steak" but I am such an A-hole I haven't done anything to address this beyond this post HERE.

Enjoy.
