At my last residence, I had access to a pretty awesome rooftop grill.  However, in the past year, it was quite common to go through all the trouble of taking a bag full of supplies and a plate of raw meat up to the rooftop only to find that the propane tank was empty.  Major bummer!

So… on one of those particular evenings, I researched and practiced the art of cooking a steak without a grill using a combination of both the stove top and the broiler.

It’s a bit detailed, but here’s where I got the instructions: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-cook-a-steak-in-the-ove-108490

Be sure that the skillet is oven safe or you might ruin your pan.


Works great!  It’s nice to have a way to cook a steak even when you don’t have access to a grill.
