Determining Doneness

Use a Thermometer

For the love of steak, learn how to cook it to the temperature you desire. Using a thermometer is the only true, accurate way to determine doneness. Recipe instructions and timetables are helpful, but your cooking surfaces vary, so reading the thermometer will tell you when to remove your beef from the heat. After it's removed the temperature will rise 5 - 15 degrees, so allowing it to rest 10-20 minutes will achieve the desired temperature and allow the juices to redistribute so every bite is perfectly moist and tender.
