3-3-2-2-Method-Steak

Rob Levitt is a butcher from Chicago who runs a shop called The Butcher & Larder. Unsurprisingly, he knows a thing or two about cooking cuts of meat. He shared a nifty little trick with The Takeout that can help you achieve perfection every time you slap a raw steak down on a cast iron pan. He calls it the 3-3-2-2 method and, frankly, it makes us want to grab a few New York strips on the way home from the office today to try it out. It’s fairly simple, too. All you do is heat your pan over medium heat and add some oil. Since we normally set our burner on high, we’re already learning something. Then you lay your cut of meat down and leave it undisturbed for three minutes. (That’s the first “3,” if you’re playing along.) After that, flip the steak over and do the same for three minutes on the other side. You probably can figure the rest out on your own. Flip again and leave for two minutes, and follow that with the same on the other side. Pull the steak and let it rest for five minutes before you devour it. 

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
