"So you flip every four or five minutes. Sometimes I flip every two or three, depending on what else I'm doing"

Bah, those rules don't work well for me. I put my steak on, let the first side get seared (just enough to leave the grill marks; usually this is the time it takes me to walk inside with the plate I carried the steak out on and get a clean one for the cooked food), flip it and sear the other side, and then take it off, it's done! With that guy's instructions, the meat would all be horribly overcooked! If you're leaving it on one side long enough for the juices to leak out toward the top, it's already too overcooked for me before you even flip it. (Yeah, I tend to prefer almost raw food.)

It pains me to say it, but she's right, you know.

Yep, sear it on one side, flip, sear the other side and it's done. If someone tells me they it more done, I just cook it a bit longer before I flip, but it only gets flipped once.

I wonder what Alton Brown has to say.
