A trick to build flavor on your steaks...
Just for a change of pace... Try this. When preparing your steaks for the grill take them out of the refer 1/2 hour before you want to grill them and... Don't put salt and pepper on them. Don't freak out now this could be good. At your grocer you will find bouillon cubes offered by Knorr. It's condensed beef flavoring that comes in very small cubes. Unwrap 1 cube and put it in a small bowl and add a teaspoon of olive oil to make a paste out of it. Rub the paste on your steaks and let them sit for the half hour cooling/warming time. It is a flavor extravaganza and it helps build a really nice rich crust on your steak that salt and pepper can't give you. Try it... You might like it.
