I'm in the S&P camp for steaks too.

+1 on the kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Let that 3" thick rib eye shine!

Me four. No need to muddle the flavor of a good steak. Save the seasonings for your baked potato and salad

Good meat deserves lots of salt and some pepper. That's it.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

I'm in the S&P club myself.

But it never hurts to stray off the reservation from time to time and your rub looks interesting.

Seems like a lot of salt and what exactly does "Greek" and "n'orleans Cajun" involve?

Welcome to the insane asylum and wishing you good eats.

I also prefer just salt and pepper, although I also like a sprinkle of Penzey's roasted garlic.

Depends on how good your steaks are and how you are cooking them.

I would for a thinner steak not be adverse to a bit of the sea salt, parsley and Tabasco.

Do you have access to lemons, or better limes? add a lime to that and you can get a bit more acid into things.

S&P always works, but I like to mix things up a bit myself.

Also get one of these, eventually

Microplane Meat Tenderizer

They work great at tenderizing poorer cuts of meat, and prepping meat before a marinate or a rub, and they look like some scary medieval torture implement. Plus you are nearly guaranteed to cut yourself at least once trying to clean it.


sourdough isn't a recipe, it is a process.

+1 on the just kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper for a good rib eye.

Like Fox mentioned, it depends on the steak. When I want grilled carne asada for tacos, the skirt steak gets gets marinaded - usually with a little oil, lime juice, garlic, s and p, and a little Worcestershire.
