Hey All,

I finally got to try the steak in a skillet last night. I bought an old Wagnor skillet on eBay pretty cheap and combined it with a couple filets. I used filets because they were on sale at Kroger, but in retrospect I think I should have gone with strips or ribeyes. A few observsations.

1) Damn, now that is what I call smoke!
2) Holy cow, that was the easiest thing ever. The entire cooking process lasted under 20 minutes (heat skillet, cook, let sit).
3) It was good, but I wouldn't say great.
4) I do think, though, that is how I am usually going to do steaks from now on. The trade off on quality is pretty small relative to how much easier cooking and clean up are vs. a charcoal grill. Of course, I still don't have a charcoal grill, but that is a horse of a different color.

Thanks for the good advice. What cuts do you guys usually prefer for that process? Or do you just see it as one size fits all?
