A few years ago, I was planning a special birthday meal for a friend and she requested steak as the star of the meal.
While I had gone to culinary school and learned all about steaks, I don’t actually eat beef myself.
So when it came time to make the steaks (that cost about $30 a piece, mind you), I was nervous because I hadn’t applied what I learned in about 5 years.
Cooking a steak is like riding a bicycle, right??
After that experience, I decided I wanted to take the guesswork out of cooking steak. So I created an easy to remember process for always getting a seared steak (or chicken, or veggie) perfectly cooked.

And then I want you to check out my interview on the Epic Gardening podcast with Kevin Espiritu. We had a fun-filled week on his show, with 7 mini-sodes where we talked about how to use up surplus herbs, surprising ways to cook vegetables, and common mistakes to avoid when cooking fresh veggies. Check it out below!
