Bless You T-Rex

Although I have cooked many steaks "generally" following the T-Rex method, I had always used various rubs, spices, marinades, etc. The results were always good, and sometimes outstanding. Tonight, however, I decided to follow the T-Rex recipe EXACTLY, i.e., sea salt, ground pepper and olive oil. Nothing else, except the Egg. The old addage "less is more" is 100% on target on this issue. With all due respect to the other providers of spices, seasonings and marinades, T-Rex's recipe of only sea salt, ground pepper and olive oil reigns supreme. Absolutely amazing. The best ever, without question. I'll use the rubs, spices and marinades for chicken, ribs, etc., but never again on a prime piece of meat cooked pursuant to the T-rex protocol.

    I did 2 porterhouses a couple of nights ago. 1 was with the "old standard" of garlic pepper and Lawrey salt. The second was with Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom....Both were cooked with the T.Rex method. [p]My surprise was the fact that my wife actually liked the Venom seasoned steak better than her normal choice of seasonings. [p]That said, I think I will try just what you suggested. One with sea salt, ground pepper and olive oil...and then go from there with the's fun to try different combos. [p]I usually throw the steaks on a platter and we cut chunks off the various "samplers" to see which we prefer. Crude, but effective. A couple of the participants at this household aren't very "up" for changes....but I have been providing some different tastes that have been working.... Thanks to the Dizzy Pig Enterprises.[p]Mike in MN

    Bill-the-Grill,[p]Glad to hear you had a great experience. I really do believe that, when you spend $$ on a prime piece of beef, you want to enjoy the taste of the BEEF, not the spices or rubs. That's my take on the issue, anyway. Glad you agree.[p]TRex
