Carryover cooking
Steak continues to cook an additional five to 10 degrees after it's removed from heat.
Steaks thinner than 3/4 inch (2 cm) should come off the heat 10 degrees before
they reach desired doneness. Steaks that are 3/4 inch (2 cm) or thicker should come off the heat five degrees before desired doneness.
