    Usually I pan fry in clarified butter, but I'm out of butter and too tired after my workout to go to the store.

    So can I pan fry in olive oil? I ask because I've never cooked a steak this way and don't want to **** up this nice ribeye sitting in my fridge.

    Yup, and if the oil is infused it will transfer a bit of flavor as well.

    Yikes! You can't broil it? A nice ribeye steak 'pan fried' ?

    To answer your question. Yes, you can. But ... just not my choice of cooking a good steak. :)

    Excellent.

    The olive oil isn't infused, but I have a great steak rub from the Caribbean that a friend brought back as a gift.

    If I'm feeling particularly metrosexual :lol: , I'll pan fry for browning and finish the steak off in the oven. Or if I'm trying to impress a girl, etc.

    I dunno. I like my steak rare and I think pan frying gives me better control.

    Do you broil in your oven or do you have a grill?

    Have done it both ways .... on the BBQ grill and in the brolier part of the oven. But not in the 'regular' part of the oven ... IMO ... it would make it tough to do so.

    Be sure you let us know how it turns out, ok? Now you have everyone on the board wanting to come to your house for dinner! lol :D
