Cooking a frozen steak?
Picked up some choice rib-eyes that were on sale for under $6 a pound and decided to freeze them.
Decided to try the Modernist Cuisine method of cooking a steak while frozen instead of thawing them out.
The recipe calls for searing the frozen steaks in a pan or with a blowtorch, then baking in an oven set to 200ºF for 1 hour.
I used my blowtorch to sear, then set my Traeger pellet smoker to smoke at around 180-200ºF and smoked them till they reached 130ºF.
They actually turned out pretty good. Here is a link to a story I wrote about it:
And here are some pictures.
looks like it cooked it VERY evenly
Beautiful Steve....how did it eat?
Turned out and tasted great, was medium rare from edge to edge. If the steak is already frozen I will fix it this way from now on.

Definately going to try out this method. Thanks for sharing!
