    I bought two gorgeous steaks for the Big Dinner this weekend, and I have no BBQ. Can I fry them? Bake them? Do I put them in baking bags?

    Thankies, folks.

    Just stick them in the oven at 500 for about an hour. Flip. Then another hour.

    Get a marinating sauce from the grocery store and let them soak in it for about 45 minutes. Then fry them in a pan on medium-high for about 8 minutes per side depending on thickness. Heat the pan first.

    Steaks really need to be grilled, I have never used baking bags, etc..
    However as per usual do not listen to Xtoxi.

    Broil them in your oven.

    Your oven did come with broiling pan did it not? Surely your oven has a broiling option, too, right?

    Broiling is, FYI, is just another word for grilling them in an oven.

    If you like the taste of charcoal, there's even stuff you can buy to give an oven broiled steak to give it that charcoal flavored taste, too (I don't recommend it)

    The stove may have a broiler....if it does (I have owned this stove for 7 years, BTW....and I really dun know, how embarrassing is this?) can I broil? How long? I'd say the steaks are 3/4ths of an inch thick.

    And why must I marinate? These are not chuck steaks.

    Probably broil 2 minutes on either side. Do you like medium rare?

    One can only grill a good steak. One can never broil or panfry a good steak.

    I recommend just sending them all to me.

    Man up! The cavemen used to eat their meat raw until they learned about fire. Take a trip back down memory lane.
