What Do You Use to Season Steaks?

I guess I'm a purist but I think a good quality steak should stand on its own. I'm looking for something to subtly enhance the taste of a great rib eye without overpowering the flavor of the meat.
What do you use?

    For quality steaks, usually just salt and pepper.

    I've done other things just for something different but it seems I always come back to salt and pepper.

    Kosher salt, then a high temp sear (TRex). Add DP Raising the Steak on both sides during the rest. Sometimes Cowlick on one side instead, but "The Princess" doesn't like the 'kick' in Cowlick....

    For rib eyes, filets, strips and T-bone I use a good dusting of John Henry’s Butter Pecan and then a light sprinkle of Weber Steak seasoning for a little additional pepper and appearance.
    Works great when you Hot-tub them.

  • :) Wel I'm an egg newbie, but I maride in a foodsaver marinade canister for a few hours with soy, red wine, and garlic. An hour in the foodsaver is like a couple days in the fridge. I then sear at 650 to 700. 2min, 2min, 2min, then rest. Directly no modified flower pot plese setters for this meal. :evil:

    I just put kosher salt before grilling and sometimes pepper afterward. I might try some McCormick's Montreal steak seasoning next time, Dizzy Pig has one now called Raising the Steaks.

  • Cheap steak=Marinate in Dales Seasoning for 10-15 minutes.

    Mid grade steak=DP Cowlick (adds a little kick to the meat)

    When I have a overtime check with no bills to pay steak=S&P

    Salt ONLY until after it is seared.Then a little touch of fresh cracked black pepper while it is roasting.I NEVER marinate a good cut/grade steak.I will sometimes sprinkle on a light dusting of Montreal Steak Seasoning but not often.

    Salt.......then, pepper once it's off the egg.

    If I'm cooking Italian, I might add a little drizzle of some fine olive oil once it's off the egg.

    Why unsalted butter?
    ·
  • FSM-MeatballFSM-Meatball Posts: 215
    People usually use unsalted butter in cooking because you really don't know how much salt is in it. It's a bigger deal when baking but I always use unsalted butter for everything.

    I really like to use chilled bacon fat. Anytime I cook bacon I save the fat in the fridge it is a great starter for most things. I rub some bacon fat and then sprinkle Montreal steak spice ad6d196c.jpg

    DP Raising the Steaks. Salty, a little peppery, and the coriander and stuff adds some bright notes that make steaks and burgers, beef and bison, absolutely shine.
