Check out the grill marks on that steak! My student was SOOO proud of himself and I was very proud of him, too! We can only use two butane burners (no electrical equipment or anything else) so we have to cook the steaks on a cast iron skillet. He did an awesome job and cooked them to perfectly medium-rare.
