I'm pretty sure I wouldn't use it to make a steak, because I like mine rare, and I'm not too keen on putting bacteria from the outside of the meat into the inside unless it's going to be cooked thoroughly. But to build a chuck roast that's going all the way to pulling temperature, or a pot roast, or a pseudo butt from rib trimmings, why not? Might be an economical alternative?
