Those look delicious.  I think your temperatures are off, though.  Medium rare is usually 135 or 140F; medium is 145F; and well is 160 (what I call "well over-done" 😉.
I usually cook our steaks to about 130.  Since you're not searing both sides, though, maybe I'd cook it a bit more, but not over 145, and I'd probably take it out about 140, assuming it would carry over a bit.


Thank you Bob, I'll update that!
