I can't cook steak. There. I said it. But it's true. Even though I'm a medium rare guy, I always end burning the crap of my choice cuts. I blame the unreasonable demands of the 'well done' brigade to be served up a plate with nary a drop of the red stuff on it.
Really hoping that this Steakmate app I put on my phone today helps. It's from the Meat and Livestock Corporation, so you'd hope they knew what they were doing.
It seems to have a pretty simple interface. You choose your steak, enter some data like thickness and how well done (or not) you want it, and it sets a timer on your phone and/or watch telling you when to turn and when to remove and rest.
You can set multiple timers for people who want their meat done differently. Thomas and I are both medium rare men. The ladies, not so much.
It only does steak for the moment, but presumably it could be further developed to handle lamb, pork and so on.
Now all I need is a new barbecue to test it out on. My old four burner has not weathered the latest of its ten winters all that well.
