Don't ever not grill a steak. Don't be dumb about this. Frying a steak is a bigger waste of meat than deciding to go celibate.
I used to feel this way until I learned the joys of searing meat in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet and then finishing in the oven, if necessary. I like my meat so rare that an oven finish is almost never needed.
The benefits of a flat iron surface are many. I can get a good Maillard reaction on the entire surface of the meat...it doesn't dry out food like a grill can tend to...more even heat distribution...and good flavor, my skillet has ten years of seasoning built into it and has never been touched by soap.
I know there is something to be said about the charcoal flavor from a grill, but don't immediately dismiss pan searing!
@jakob187: I think your analysis is spot on, that is precisely the reason why I listed Lincoln as the film that will probably win. I think it would have taken Best Picture and Best Director easily even without Daniel Day-Lewis...with him it's a shoe-in, and along with a likely Best Actor nod as well, making it his third win. Crazy.
So how many pages on this site are basically pulled straight from Wikipedia?
None, if we can help it. If plagiarized content from any other site is found, it is removed and the user responsible for adding it has their wiki editing privileges revoked permanently.
In addition, there is a vetting process that we put users through who want to edit wiki pages. Until they reach 5,000 points, all of their submissions require approval from site staff, and part of that approval process is checking to see if the content has been ripped from some other site. Once a user reaches 5,000 points, they are granted live edit privileges and their submissions no longer require moderation. It is very, very rare that plagiarized material ends up on the site, and when it does, it doesn't stay there for very long.
Is that what you think Giant Bomb is? Wikipedia content reformatted?
Please, please search or at least look around a little before posting stuff like this. If it's a topic as inane and common as this, chances are that it's been done not only once but probably ten times before.
Here's one of them...from 2008. There are polls all over the place and repeat topics posted every six months to a year.
Gamespy has been around forever, but when were they last relevant? I think the only thing of value that was lost here is peoples' jobs...hopefully most of them will be able to move on to something better.
