I wanted to learn how to cook a steak in 2020 after a lot of time stuck at home—but everywhere I looked provided conflicting information to reasonable questions. Questions like: What pan temperature? What oils? How often to flip the steak? Should I baste it? What about tempering? Sous vide or reverse sear? Plain old skillet? Cast iron or not? The questions were infinite.

After hundreds of hours of scouring through cookbooks and textbooks, cooking dozens of steaks, and losing half my hair, I’ve found it! I’ve found the secret to cooking the perfect steak—every time—using science.
