Garlemald did nothing wrong.
So yesterday I got two ribeyes at a Whole Foods Market for around 16 bucks. 10oz, USDA choice, somewhat decent marbling, the whole shebang. I cooked one yesterday and I plan on cooking the other today. My problem though is that when I got the meat on the pan and searing, it started to shrink up and the edges lifted off the pan; creating all sorts of uneven cooking problems.

I don't know if it was because of the pan I was using, I don't have a proper cast iron and the pan I was using isn't entirely flat. I was gonna use a slightly bigger pan but one that was definitely more flat. I also don't know if the temperature on the stove might have played a role, I preheated the stove but I had it all the way up, not sure if I needed it on like a 6/7 out of 10 instead.

Any steak experts have any good ideas?

Get a meat thermometer you can use in the oven. Preheat the oven to 375, and put a pan on the stove on medium high. Let the steak rest on the counter for a few minutes, pat dry, and lightly coat it in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sear for two minutes each side, then put the pan in the oven with a slice of butter on the steak. Cook about 5 minutes each side, using the meat thermometer to remove the steak at 120 degrees, or 125 for more medium than rare. Put the steak aside, lightly tented with foil to rest for another few minutes. Eat.

If the steak has a big strip of fat, make cuts along the fat, pointing the knife towards the steak, and it won't curl up. Make sure you sear the fuck out of that fat strip while you sear the rest of the steak.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Slow cooker.

Knees go weak, and I swoon, underneath the pallid moon.
Praise the night, and praise the night!
The only time I feel alright.
melt a stick of butter and throw the steak into a plastic bag with the butter

microwave until well done and njoy with some A1 steak sauce

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
Buy some fish instead, steak is trash

For whatever reason, fish has a tendency to make me feel God awful I’ll. It seems that when it comes to meat, if it doesn’t have legs it makes me sick.
