When it comes to grilling the perfect steak there’s a method to the madness and it starts with seasoning.
Unlike most things pertaining to Backyard BBQ and Grilling there is little debate about how to season a steak. My go to steak is usually Ribeye, while Alli liked Filets. The one thing we can agree on is more than half of the battle to a perfectly grilled steak is in the seasoning.
As a BBQ person, I sometimes get sucked in with BBQ Rubs and Gourmet Steak Blends. Truthfully, more often that not these are overkill. I want to taste the steak, and I want to taste the cut of meat without it being all BBQ Rub.
How To Season a Steak
This one is simple…we like coat all sides of the steak with Cracked Black Pepper and Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. From there we place it on a hot grill that has grates lightly hit with olive oil.
[NOTE: Lawry’s is also the worst kept Secret BBQ Ingredient for Texas Pitmasters.]
Seriously, that’s all you need to perfectly season a steak. Don’t complicate things and go full tilt with the spices. In this instance all you want to do is compliment the flavor of the beef.
