Ask anyone who knows anything about cooking steak what pan to use and the answer will be an almost unanimous “Cast Iron!”. Ever since I begun cooking and starting my journey to the perfect steak I’ve been looking to get my hands on one — you wouldn’t think they would be difficult to find but for some reason nowhere in Sydney sells them. I must have gone through a dozen stores and another dozen websites simply looking for a basic cast iron skillet and they all let me down. My solution: Bring one back from Crate & Barrel in LA. For < $20 I got a pre-seasoned Lodge Cast Iron Skillet; luggage weight restrictions be damned!
So that was dinner for last night. I look forward to a long and healthy relationship with my new cast iron pan. As for how he panned out (har har har) last night, he done good. He done real good.
