Foul. Morton's is much better in Chicago than Gibsons.

Once you learn how to cook a good steak at your own house, no restaurant can come close to serving you better food than what you can do at your own house- for a fraction of the ridiculous cost.

As a long time fan of grilling, I've yet to find a steakhouse that does steaks as well as I do at home, and I am far from an expert.

If you haven't tried the Santa Maria, CA style tri-tip, give it a shot. Some grocers only have it as roast, but that's an easy cut or ask them to cut it for you. Very lean, so use some olive oil on it and then a rub.

No result. I stopped after 4 slides. They just go over the most famous steakhouses in a bunch of cities. What a crappy attempt at a story.

22 tiny slides with advertisement slides. Whoever posted this please come forward and accept your beating. You know you deserve it.

As to the topic at hand, I like Forbes Mill Steakhouse in Los Gatos. Their tajima black wagyu filet Mignon is delicious. A grocery store steak will never look or taste the same again :-(

While it's good to see Ranchman's Cafe get a mention, it's chicken fried steak is the winner there. Regular steaks are great, but just great. Nothing to soil yourself about.

And try the fried cactus while you're there.

What's wrong with sizzler? You just gotta know how to order a steak correctly prepared. Get it well done and ask for a bottle of their Heinz 57 Ketchup. Not Hunts, Heinz.

Second vote for Murrays. Home of the silver butterknife steak.

Ate there 7, 8 years ago when on a business trip. After the wonderful steak, had a great ceegar outside the restaurant. It was cold and there were some light snow flurries coming down. Nice experience.

No, do not go to Pat's or Geno's Steaks for cheese steaks in Philly. Go up to the Northeast to Chink's (that was the owner's nickname and not a racial slur). Pat's and Geno's is strictly for tourists and idiots like John Kerry (I can haz swiss cheese on my steak?).

I agree with that farker, and I've spent far more than $100 on a meal. I'll take a steak that I pick out @ the butcher, then grill up @ home over ANY restaurant steak.

Funny thing about Kevin Rathbun's restaurants is that they are all on the same end of a small street along with some decent condos in central Atlanta. But you would never know its there because part of that neighborhood is run down and sort of abandoned. Haven't been there, but heard so many great things about them all.

/Another funny thing is that one way in getting to the restaurants is driving through this old underground tunnel filled with graffiti.

That part about saying I wanted it to enter "comedic territory" was your clue that it was a joke dude. A joke.

That would involve actually going through the article. I made it three slides in, not including the pop-up.

/Great steaks can be made at home, but that doesn't preclude going out for the whole restaurant experience at a good steakhouse once in a while.

Live in DC. Love me some Ray's (The Steaks). Their website is circa 1998 Microsoft Frontpage and their dining room looks like it could just as easily house office cubicles instead of tables. And they don't serve hard liquor. But it's the only place in the DC area where you can get a stellar steak and two sides for less than $40. Had their hanger steak two days ago. It was delicious, perfectly done, and not so monstrous as to make you force yourself to cram it down your gullet while breathing heavily.

OK, so maybe some of you can help a farkette out.

I can cook lamb, chicken, and fish perfectly. I have a great sense of timing when I'm using the broiler in my oven, I have a meat thermometer, and a cast iron skillet. I just can't seem to cook a FARKING steak. It always seems to come out dry and tasteless, but I don't overcook it. Yet it still has a dry leather feeling to it. As a result, I've lost pretty much all desire for steak or beef and stick to lamb. If I really want a steak, I'll go out.

Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

I would agree with the comments that for a basic piece of meat i can probably do as good at home as they can in a restaurant, but i dont have the ability to do proper dry ageing and that is what i am willing to pay more for at a decent steakhouse

Chicken, fish and lamb perfectly? You own a cast iron skillet and a meat thermometer? But you can't do steak?

My suggestion is that's close enough and you need to come live at my house immediately. DO NOT PASS GO THERE IS NO TIME

THIS (provided you're able to source a good cut of meat -- may be harder than you think)

Can't go wrong with Alton Brown's easy peasy steak recipe:

take steak. let it sit out for a while to get to room temp.
Meanwhile, put a cast-iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 500 deg.

salt & pepper steak
coat in oil

when oven reaches temp, take out skillet & put on stovetop burner on high

sear the steak on both sides for 30 secs each.

put skillet in oven and cook steak 2 mins on a side (for medium)

take out, put steak on plate and cover with tin foil. let rest for 10 minutes

OM NOM NOM

(NB: crack a window or something, unless you like your smoke detector going off)

steak threads remind me of the horrible 'Beefsteak Charlie's' TV commercials that ran with Crazy Eddie and 'oh what a feeling Toyota' spots of the 70's/80's.
