Default Cook's Illustrated new! way to cook steak

That May Cook's Illustrated that came today had
an interesting article about steak that I'm going
to try. This is for thick 1.5"+ steak only.
You roast the steak in the oven at 275F until the
internal temp. is 90F. Then you sear it
quickly over high heat on a saute pan.
The pics show "char rare" steak, with a
crispy dark outside and an edge to edge
rare interior.
You can see this being done on :

Why couldn't you warm the steak to 90F on the
defrost setting of the microwave?

There is a method that made the rounds on many of the BBQ grill/smoker
forums about a year or a year and a half ago that's fairly similar. It's
called the "Hot Tub Steak" or something similar. You put your steak in a
zip-lok bag, or vacuum sealed bag, put it in the Hot tub (or a pan of hot
water, etc.) 'til it warms to (whatever) temperature, then you grill it.

I don't care for it, because I like the rare center of my steak to be
slightly cool when the outside is crusty-charred.
YMMV

If you like rubber steak, then warm it up in the microwave. I usually fast
fry my steaks in the cast iron skillet to build up a good browning on the
outside. Then stick the skillet into the oven that has been pre-heated to
450F, for about 2 minutes.

The author of the Cooks' Illustrated article referred to that. He said the
zip-lock
method fails because too much moisture accumulates on the surface of the
steak.
The steak, at that point, won't brown. When heated in the oven this doesn't
occur.

the steak.


When I tried it, I sealed the zip-lok, No moisture entered the bag

The steak, at that point, won't brown.


Again, when I tried it, the steak browned just fine.

When heated in the oven this
doesn't occur.


Like I said, I like the rare center of my steak to
be slightly cool when the outside is crusty-charred.

Why don't you try several different variations and see which *you* like
best.

Also repeating YMMV
