    My basic steak recipe is pan-broiled, rare:

    Place a thin layer of salt in a very hot frying pan.
    Add steak to sear, flip to sear other side.
    Reduce heat, cook ~6 minutes per side.

    Add pepper.

    Olive Oil, Black Pepper, Rock Salt, some boiling water and balsamic vinegar, heat for a couple of minutes. Then drop the steak in 4 minutes each side medium heat, take the steak out leave on a warm plate, simmer the remaining juices for 3-4 minutes then pour over the rested steak.

    Yummy.

    Cook from room temperature, very hot griddle pan, olive oil and salt and pepper on steak, then about a minute on each side, as far as I'm concerned if its not mooing - it's overdone!

    the olive oil and pepper was a winner
    I bathed the meet in a tiny bit of Cognac before the last turn and
    I must say, a pinch of garlic would have been nice.
    I think I will brown the garlic first and try to add some carmelized onions too.
    thanx guys.

    jeff try an islay malt(i find laphroiag works best as it is very intense). they have a wondeful smoky flavor. dont use it as a marinade, just splash some(like a 1/4 shot or less for smaller steaks) on each side after you do the intial sear. i find this works well with just about any method of flavoring & cooking.
    i dont have any set recipe except that i rub a thin coat of beef baste one each side a few hours before cooking. how i season it depends on cut, what is going with it & type of wine/ beer. & most importantly i how much alcohol i have consumed.
    i grow some of my own herbs so i always throw some sprigs in of whatever sounds good(always rosemary) & let them get smokin just before meat goes on. i also keep several different types of wood around(either from actual trees or those pre packaged things u can buy).
    some great ideas here that im going to try. thx guys & good thread jeff!
    fyi, i have a very large, very nice gas bbq that is use year around. probably average 2-3 times a week throughout the year. wich is y i have all the wood chips. whil i like the flavot u get from charcoal bbq, there is no beating gas for speed & versatility. if im cooking anything that smells - fish, garlic, etc, i do it on the big side burner saving the house from that issue. plus i just like being out side:)

    Let's see... how does it go again...
    "Dust the horns, wipe it's ass & put it on a plate."

    or maybe it was.

    "In a state such that a skilled veterinarian could possibly revive it."

    Just a bit of marinade, "Dale's" is the name of my favorite local brand, and then just a few moments on the grill on each side & the cut it fast. Mmmmm mmm!!

    prosciutto is the ticket!
    hot coppa or pancetta are excellent alternatives depending on the flavor u want.

    for marinade i use lots of lemon juice, lots of seasoned salt, A1 sauce, minced garlic....or garlic powder is fine, and cook it until it stops screaming "Mooooooooooooooo" :lol:

    it differs cut to cut... a typical rib steak ill take medium. or a tbone medium well. my friend likes his "kissed", that shit is F**KED up. If you don't know what "kissed" is, its basically touching the steak on the grill to kill the bacteria. So you basically eat it raw on the inside. That and Chicago burnt I don't get why? Fillet mignon seems nice, but its not worth it. Anyone been to the Keg? Pretty good place here for the price, get a damn more then decent steak and not hurt your wallet. There's a bunch.

    Anyways, I have been trying to give up beef. Personal thing, on top of religious. MickeyD double cheesburgers are such good drunk food.

    I think that qualifies as being against the grilling bible. Even as a marinade...A1 should never be used! booo

    Personally I think swallowing your own vomit is tastier than anything on the MickeyD menu ... but then if your drunk I guess it don't matter right ;)
