Chef's Tip

1.  Salt and pepper your steaks and leave uncovered in the refrigerator overnight.
2.  Remove from refrigerator and leave at room temperature for 1 hour before cooking to "temper" the meat.
3.  This will ensure a nice crust, seasoning all the way through the meat and an even cooking temperature.
