    So i've got a few fillet steaks for dinner, and I need some advice on how to pan fry them. I've rubbed oil on them, but my question is should you cook the sides of the steaks? I mean, they are very thick steaks (about 2cm) and i think that if i dont then it might be very red around the edges. Do chefs normally do this?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Ask Siri on your iphone 4S.
    BTW, this section is titled "iphone tips, help and troubleshooting" not cooking and recipes.

    Rub a cast-iron or stainless steel pan with a halved clove of garlic. (No non-stick... pan will get too hot.)

    Grind lots of fresh pepper into the pan. (I highly recommend Morton & Bassett's five-color rainbow peppercorns... ambrosia.) Put over high heat. When the pepper starts to smoke, the pan is ready.

    Put the steaks in. Reduce heat to medium. Allow to sear for a minute. Use a spatula to rotate them; this keeps them from sticking.

    Grind more pepper on the upper surface of the steaks.

    After 2-3 minutes, flip. Again, rotate after a minute.

    Add some salt. Push on the steaks; when they start to firm up, they're ready. Feel free to slice into one to see how they're progressing. You can flip again too if they need more cooking.

    Take them out of the pan. Let them rest for a few minutes while you set the table. This is an important step!
