Baste steak with olive oil and clove of crushed garlic. Place steak on either a hot frying pan or on a hot grill. Grill quickly. 1 inch steaks cook 3 minutes first side, 2 minutes second. 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch steaks increase cooking time by 2 minutes per side.
(like Short Ribs, Osso Bucco, Brisket, Chuck Roasts)
Cook in either crock pot on low or cast iron covered pot in oven at 250 for a minimum of 4 hours. Before cooking add an inch of liquid to the pot. Red Wine, water, broth all work well. Season with garlic, chopped onions, along with your other favorite seasonings. As an option you may add other vegetables one hour before finished.
Braise roast in heavy pan. Cube all vegetables and put them in covered pot along with roast. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes per pound of meat. Cook to internal temperature of 130 degrees.
