Steak rubs and marinades

We bought some beautiful porthouse house steaks and i would really like to try a good rub and/or marinade for them... I would love any ideas.

I like mine marinated for 1/2 hour in low salt soy.
Then I season after that with Spicy Montreal from McCormicks.

I find the soy really brings the umami and makes the beef beefier.

BTW I only grill my steaks and the hotter the better for the temp.

I don't marinate good steaks. I prefer the taste of the beef.

I with you on that one, but my DH isn't very fond of "slab 'o beef" unless it has a rub or has been marinated. (And he wants them well done!)

Thanks for the tips! I think i might try the steaks with without the seasonings... And yes, the steaks are always better on an open flame!!

I like to make a flavored butter. Give the steaks a nice coating and let them sit.
When you grill them, make sure the first side to hit the grill is nicely coated. Expect
flare-up it is all good and won't last long!
Before you flip, slather the steak again, and after you flip.
What the heck, toss some on the other side after you remove from the grill! :)

Butter, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt, pepper and smoked paprika
is what I usually use. Just mix well into nicely softened butter.

I usually mix black pepper, mustard powder and garlic powder with butter. I add the rub right before cooking, but ensure that I have salted the beef at least 15 minutes prior. However, all that being said, in my experience, good technique is the most important part to grilling a steak.

Before grilling the steaks I would put ground course sea salt and ground peppercorns on each side after rubbing it with a light coating of olive oil. You could rub a clove of garlic over each side first

Lately I have been loving a bit of the Montreal Steak Spice, with a piece of St. Agur on the side. A match made in heaven.
