Cook a Perfect Steak

Check doneness by pressing a steak in the center, says Steven Raichlen, [author of The Barbecue! Bible]. Then use your thumb, fingers, and the varying firmness of the base of your thumb as your guide.

What is your steak type?

This is sooo simple and so accurate it will amaze you. I have been going by feel for years and it works.
