Thanks Ntombi! Can you just put the steak on a plate or does it need to be raised up so that air can go underneath it, too?

I put it on a plate, but I flip it over daily. some people like to use a rack. I find that takes up too much space.

I love steak!! Any kind it doesn't matter to me. I like it cooked medium rare. I used to cook steaks in a steak restaurant when I was young. Love em. At home, it is on the back yard bbq or on the stove in my heavy cast iron pan with butter.

porterhouse or t-bone are my faves....

but, any steak that is at least 1" thick grilled to meaty-yum rare with sauted or grilled mushrooms and onions is most enjoyable with jewish deli mustard on the side or on top, and i am 1 happy troll. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

It doesn't go bad because the bacteria that make beef go bad, stinky, and slimy, are anaerobic, meaning they need an oxygen-free environment to survive and thrive. When the meat is open to the air, that doesn't happen. You know all that expensive dry-aged beef? That's what it is, on a much larger, humidity controlled scale. They hang sides of meat for weeks or months, trim off the dry parts, and then butcher it.
Thank you so much for this information!! I've just started trying this, so far I've had two steaks this way, and WOW!!! I'm a convert!!
