Steaks are a great choice for casual, outdoor gatherings, but can be a little tricky for seated dinner parties. Instead of attempting to cook a bunch of smaller steaks, struggling to time it all just right, and smoking up your kitchen, the people at ChefSteps suggest focusing on one large steak to absolute perfection.
Not only will this let you really nail the flavours and temperature in your glorious piece of meat, it will create a nice communal feel to the meal and cut down on the amount of time (and effort) you have to spend in the kitchen. ("But not everyone likes their steak cooked to medium-rare!" you object. The solution to that is easy: Don't invite those people. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.)
