Crowd Pleasin’ Pan Seared Steak

Ingredients:
4 16-oz. porterhouse steaks
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup red onion, diced
1 large tomato, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 475°F. Season each steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over high heat, up to the just smoking point (based on the size of your pan, you may want to do one steak at a time). Using a pair of tongs, carefully place the steaks in the pan and sear for 3 minutes on one side. Turn over and add the onion, tomato, and garlic. Sauté for 3—4 minutes. Add the vinegar and cilantro and continue to cook for 3 more minutes. Transfer to a large baking pan, and pour the vegetable mixture on top of the steaks. Place in the oven and cook until it reaches the desired temperature (medium rare takes about 7 minutes).

You’re going to pour vinegar into a pan of hot oil? Are you sure?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
