First time cooking steak...help!

wholefoodie315 | Nov 20, 2012 05:06 AM

For tonight, I just bought two dry-aged ribeye steaks from Whole Foods.

What are your opinions on best way to cook indoors since I do not have a grill?
If pan frying: exactly how long should I sear on each side to get it to medium rare?

Also, I've read varying accounts on what temp the steak needs to be for medium rare. Some sites have said 130-135 for medium rare while others say no less than 145. What is the correct temp?? I certainly don't want rare and inedible but don't want to overcook either.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
