Two simple, fool-proof methods to cook a steak to delicious perfection

[Updated: ]Haha, sorry I missed another video in Spanish.

(The below video is in Spanish, but we provide you with a step-by-step translation below)
• First, ask your butcher for a 3.3-pound (1.5 kilogram) well-marbled bone-in ribeye in vacuum packaging. The bone is important, because it helps to keeps the meat moist. The vacuum part is important too, because it will avoid oxidation.
• Put the meat out of the fridge at room temperature (not in a hot room, just normal temperature) for 24 hours inside the vacuum packaging. Don't take it out! It's important you do this step to have the perfect result.
• On a large, very hot non-stick pan, add a bit of olive oil and put the steak in 3 minutes on each side. Don't move or lift the steak after you place it. Just let it be and flip it when it's time.
• Take it out the pan and put it on a metal rack to rest for 10 minutes.
• Let the pan heat up again to the max and put the steak back in 2 minutes on one side.
• Flip the steak and add 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of butter. Continuously pour the resulting melted butter mixed with the meat juices over the top for another 2 minutes.
• Put it on a metal rack to rest for 5 minutes, covering it with some aluminum foil with three holes on it (so the vapor doesn't condensate.)
• Cut in filets and sprinkle some good quality sea salt like fleur de sel or Maldon.

You Can Buy an Actual Viking Ship at Denmark s Viking Ship
Gear | News
After touring a museum, what do you think is the best gift shop souvenir to commemorate your visit? A post card? A magnet? Now the public can buy various kinds of authentic handcrafted Viking ships online through the Viking Ship Museum's webshop. Part of the facility features a workshop where modern day craftsmen use authentic ancient tools and techniques to build copies of Viking boats. The boat pictured above is actually partly made using authentic Viking tools, but modern equipment as well, so that it can be more easily mass-produced. As a result, the Trýbekkur, as it's called, will only cost you just north of $24,500.
"The Viking Ship Museum is much more than just a museum - it's a working, living museum, where craftsmen, using authentic tools, have re-discovered the ancient skills of how the Vikings built these ultimate war machines."
