I always use canned beans. A cinch, and every bit as good as soaked. I even use the water. I never buy canned beans that are in anything other than plain water. Your steak should be out of the fridge for at least a good hour before you cook it, exposed to fresh air. No chef worth his/her salt cooks a steak from fridge-cold. Try it and see.

I was a garlic-crusher for years before I saw the light. Martha Stewart and Elizabeth David, as well as most Italian cooks, would both scoff in your general direction for using a garlic crusher. It is the tool of those who don't get garlic, guys!
