Open flames & grill drippings are one way to tackle a steak. I prefer to make mine in a good old fashioned cast iron pan. It can stand getting amazingly hot and produce a perfect crust on the steak. The only tricks to an amazing steak are 1. start with a great steak, 2. get the heat right, and 3. let the steak rest when it's done cooking before slicing it. That's it. Enjoy!
