    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 200║F for 1 hour.

    I used my blowtorch to sear, then set my Traeger pellet smoker to smoke at around 180-200║F and smoked them till they reached 130║F.

    They actually turned out pretty good. Here is a link to a story I wrote about it:

    And here are some pictures.

    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.

    I always freeze my Angus Entrec˘tes (porterhouse, sirloin steak) when I buy them. I can't be eating them all at once when I buy a couple of pounds of them in discount at the wholesaler.

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