Don't we all pretty much agree, "When in doubt, throw it out."?

Depends on who you are going to be feeding it to. Like an Ex?

Seasoning could be a simple as salt or any other stuff that people sprinkle on their steaks. It also depends on the cut of the meat what is sprinkled on and how it's cooked. I would ask her what seasoning she's lonesome for. In my own family the faintest sprinkle of anything is "Ick, too much", while another person wants it all and with a heavy hand. Ask her "What seasoning do they use back home?". Back home could be her own back yard and not the entire 50 states.

If we're trying for when a majority of people season their steak, I'll season ours sometime between when I take it out of the refrigerator and when it goes on the grill. No particular time, but the steak is out on the counter at least a half hour before it hits the grate. Usually it's just a generous dose of McK's Montreal Steak seasoning because that's what I have on hand.

My mom always said that and I always believed her

I would only add that you need to actually follow the directions, until you're comfortable enough that you can start winging it. I had a friend who would consistently overcook meat because it didn't "look" done and she couldn't understand why.

Ever since I read this article, I've been salting my steak at least 45 minutes before cooking; I only season with salt and pepper and cook to medium-rare. It comes out perfectly seasoned, juicy and delicious: http://www.steamykitchen.com/163-how...me-steaks.html
