Steak dinners are a special kind of meal. They're big, hearty and make a regular Monday night feel like a decadent celebration. That's because steak dinners usually are the mark of a special occasion, punctuated with an outing to a big, fancy restaurant. But we say save the money you'd spend on table service and learn to make steaks at home -- and do it better than the steakhouse can (so long as you avoid these mistakes).

Not only is perfecting your at-home steak game easy, it also means you'll be able to eat more of the good stuff, because it's significantly less expensive to cook it yourself. If that's not incentive to learn how to make perfect steak at home, we don't know what is. Here are 12 recipes that'll help you do just that.
