CAR­RY­OVER COOK­ING

Steak con­tin­ues to cook af­ter it’s re­moved from heat, gain­ing an ad­di­tional 5 to 10 de­grees. Steaks thin­ner than ¾ inch should come off the heat 10 de­grees be­fore they reach de­sired done­ness. Steaks that are ¾ inch or thicker should be re­moved from the heat 5 de­grees be­fore de­sired done­ness.

“The only time to eat diet food is while wait­ing for the steak to cook." —chef Ju­lia Child
