Morsels of Life - Steak - A super easy way to make tender, juicy, and flavorful steak at home!

We'd never made steaks at home before. In fact, we don't usually buy steaks to make at home. But there's a first time for everything, right? I thought it'd be a long and/or arduous process. Let me tell you - wrong on both counts! In fact, this steak recipe was so simple and straightforward James made it on his own - and didn't even ask for help! And since apartment living doesn't allow for grilling, he made the whole thing using the stovetop/oven. The final result? Tender, juicy, and flavorful steak in the comfort of your own home!

Which do you prefer - steak at home or steak in a restaurant?
