Ok...so I have not really read much of this thread because I never had a need to since I am a vegetarian. Buuuut...I plan on celebrating steak and a BJ day for my bf on the 14th since he is awesome and treated me so special on Valentine's Day. Obviously, I haven't the slightest idea how to cook or buy a steak. What kind of steak should I buy and how can I cook it simply? Nothing too hard because I don't know that I could handle it. Also, no grilling methods can be used since it's cold and grilling is kinda out of the question. Any suggestions you guys can give me would be awesome. Thanks!

Cook it using any of the myriad simple and effective methods described in this awesome thread. You don't need any fancy materials or ingredients and most of the methods, such as pan searing in a cast-iron on the stovetop, are virtually foolproof and provide excellent results.

All: Those Kobe pics look incredible. Gobbo, where are those pics from?
pegger: That looks like a perfectly cooked medium, nice and uniform all the way across. Looks great. Hit it right in the middle between this one and your last one and you'll have the perfect steak for my taste.
