As The Guardian reports, this is McGee's method:
apparently the best way to ensure the first is to wrap the steaks in cling film then immerse them in warm water for 30 — 60 minutes before cooking.
Alternatively, you could just let the steaks come to room temperature on the counter before cooking. McGee's other tip, the article notes, is to flip often.
The warming method is at odds with the quick-freeze method of getting a perfect crust and cooking a steak straight from the freezer technique, but there's more than one path to better-tasting steaks.
