TIPS:
Don’t be a serial flipper! The more you flip, the longer it’ll take to sear your steaks. Place them in the pan and LET. THEM. COOK. Use your tongs to gently lift steaks to see if they’re ready to flip.
If you use a thick-sliced bacon, add an additional minute or two of cooking time to make sure it’s cooked through.
