Wow! These were fantastic. I didn't have star anise, so I used a dash of anise seed and a dash of allspice. I used a full sauce recipe for only half the amount of meat. Served with mashed yukon gold potatoes and these green beans: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/haricots-verts-vinaigrette-50400000122915/ I was a little concerned about the amount of smoke when you transfer the pan and steak to the oven, but it dies down eventually. Olive oil doesn't have a high smoking point, so I'm wondering if some other oil would be better suited for this cooking technique.
