      you forgot the wine... can't cook steak without a dash (or more)of wine... in fact can't cook anything without wine :)

      I really wanna cook beef steak it's just that I don't know when the meat is already ok..or for how long am I gonna cook it. I really don't cook good. I experiment though but it's really bad.

      genrp, just keep the heat medium or low, test the meat with a fork or knife to see if meat is already tender.. you may bite and taste it to be sure.. just be careful coz it's hot.. I can relate to you, I didn't cook when I was young and single.. after that it's just practice and I read cookbooks especially on the right measurement of ingredients.. thanks and good luck with your cooking.
