How to Kill a perfectly good steak...

Step 1. Buy some really expensive steak (aged and everything) from your local grocer.

Step 2. Do some research on the Internet about how to cook a rib eye steak in your kitchen and not on a grill.

Step 3. Take advice from company that sells steak about how to cook a rib eye.

Step 4. Follow directions to the "T" for medium rare steak, careful to measure the steak thickness and find cooking times on chart. Cross reference times on chart to other charts on the Internet because I 'don't trust the steak people'.

Step 5. Don't feel right about the directions but follow them anyway.

Step 6. Take out steak and have an ill feeling about how it looks but plate it anyway.

Step 7. Make a fancy sauce out of the juices in the pan just in case the steak is totally messed up and you need to cover the steak with a butter/wine sauce.

Step 8. Feed the steak to your significant other and watch them try to smile while they manage to only eat 1/3 of the steak. Notice your jaw start to lock after just eating 3 pieces of your own meat that's obviously overdone.

Step 9. Add tons of butter/wine sauce to your steak.

Step 10. Promise never to cook steak like that again and convince significant other to buy a grill so we can follow other Internet directions on grilling instead. (<---have I not learned????)

Step 11. Rename post title to "How to convince your significant other to buy a grill..."
