Steve, I respect your opinion greatly, but we may be talking about steaks of a different cut.
The steak I have in mind is a striploin, ribeye or (when we're rich) a porterhouse about an inch thick and stone cold, having just been removed from the refrigerator. I season it with salt and pepper, thyme and garlic, and whack it down on a cast-iron grill pan that is as hot as the strongest hob on our gas stove can get it. I give it four minutes a side, by the timer on the microwave, and then rest it for about five minutes. Result: medium-rare -- that is, pink under the char and red in the middle. Himself prefers not to hear it moo.
But I notice you do not challenge my assertions about the labour-intensive nature of a vegetarian diet.
