My favorite steaks

In my family we have always "pan broiled" rib eye and strip steaks. It's the same method without the oil.
Heat a dry cast iron skillet over medium high flame for 3 - 4 minutes, throw in a little kosher salt, then your room temperature dry steaks. 1 inch thick takes about 4 minutes a side for a nice brown crust with deep pink interior.
Caution!
This method does create a lot of smoke, so turn on the fan and open the windows. You'll have the neighbors at your door
'cause it will smell just like your favorite steak house.

Y'all will have to excuse me, as to me, the terms "BBQ" and "Steak" just don't go together. To me, "BBQ" means smoking, low heat, long times, etc. Steaks are meant for quick cooking at high heat, either directly over hot coals (grilling), or in a really hot pan.

Personally, I like to grill steaks over a really hot fire, until they are medium. However, I really love to blacken steaks in a cast iron skillet over high heat, with clarified butter and lots of seasoning mix. I've also done steak au poivre (sp?) a few times, years ago, and I need to do it again to show my other half, PeppA, how steak can be done.

BBQ to me means on a cast iron grill over flames or heat beads. I love BBQ steak, quickly done so that its still rare inside. I love scotch fillet and eye fillet, especially if they have been marinated first.

Grilled, not BBQ'ed (BBQ is slow cooked). I knew what you meant, but I'm picky...

I think Australians call BBQ something different to in the US. If we throw something on the BBQ grill then cook it its called BBQed here.

I like it grilled (MR) with a piece of foie gras on top and a little truffle demi.

I'll eat any way it's cooked...especially smothered with onions. I wouldn't mind this cut either. Anyone know what cut it is? (Prime rib I think.) Had to share this because it's such a great pic from Lawry's.

2-3" Porterhouse from Neiman Ranch simply marinated in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon; fresh rosemary, thyme, and oregano, then grilled to medium-rare.

Same here mrsmac. But folks in the US use BBQ as a noun. What we call BBQing they call grilling. There have been many passionate battles over the term. Fortunately, here there is room enough for all uses of the word

mish, I am pretty sure that is prime rib. Oh my it looks tasty.
