    Matters not how you got there but hopefully you have some level of recall as that is a great result.  Congrats on nailing the cook.

    Mrs. bucky is always on me for not ordering steak or ribs at a restaurant .  But you will soon find yours are better than theirs,

    @bucky925 - not to totally derail this thread but I have generally subscribed to the following, "never order in a restaurant that which you can cook at home."  (Edit: I have been subscribing to this since my mid 20's, a few decades ago).
    Exceptions for brisket in Central Texas, seafood in New England and the one-off celebration of any house speciality.  FWIW-

    Updated to show how I cooked it. 

    I agree that that most restaurants overcharge on their steaks. I’ve just never been able to get the thicker cuts quite right until tonight. 

    I usualy cook marinated flank or flat iron steak. Not hard to screw that up.

    Looks SPECTACULAR -- you NAILED it!!!
  • onedbguruonedbguru Posts: 1,601
    Looks great.  Another great way that we have started doing steaks, on occasion, is Sous Vide to 129 for 1-2hrs and finishing on the grill at ~500.  (1-2min/side)  - extremely tender and juicy. I generally don't get steaks in restaurants because our quality and taste is much better!!
  • gdenbygdenby Posts: 6,044
    Looks fine. Good sear, nice and pink inside.

    Once one gets a technique down, the hard part is finding really good steaks. The high end restaurants tend to get most of those.

    With a professional camera shoot, that steak could be on the front page of any culinary literature as a featured item.  Just plain WOW!!!
