Very simply. Start with a good grade of meat. I rub the steaks with a clove of garlic thoroughly. I normally marinate the steak in marinade of choice for at least two hours. There are so many good recipes and so many prepared ones on the shelf I don't limit myself to one.

I marinate in a ziplock bag and turn the bag and squish it so that all sides are saturated. Cook on a hot grill or cook in a hot skillet and don't linger over the steak. 3 to 3 and a half minutes per side is normally good for a rare steak. After both sides have been on the heat for the alloted time, remove and place on platter or plate which can be covered for a few minutes.

Serve with sauteed mushrooms. You may have to adjust the time for your stove or grill but the process works beautifully. The few minutes resting prior to serving allows sufficient time to plate other food. Enjoy.

I use Hi-Mountain Seasonings "Western Steak Sizzle" on 1" thick cuts of sirloin.
Here's what I do:
About 1hr before the meat hits the grill, I take it out of the fridge, put it on a plate and coat 1 side with the seasoning. After about 30 minutes, I turn it over and coat the other side and let it sit for about 30 minutes more.
When it hits the grill, I sprinkle more of the seasoning and do the same when it's turned.
I grill it about 5 minutes on one side and closer to 3 minutes on the other side - I like it bloody rare.

Before I found the Hi-Mountain seasonings, I used to do the same thing only I would put sea salt on and then 1/2 can of beer on each side as it grilled. Beer is a great tenderizer - the alcohol burns out and it leaves the meat juicy and tender.

Oh, and I found the best way to eat these steaks is with a tall, cold beer.

Yes, Frank, a tall cold beer has helped many a steak meet perfection. Where do you purchase your seasoning? Can it be purchased online?
Thanks

One of the most sublime ways to prepare steak is Tuscan-style. It's best over a charcoal grill, but any way you cook it will be fine.

Start out with a good piece of steak - T-bone or Porterhouse are the best, naturally, but any quality steak cut will do. Season with salt and pepper; that's it, nothing else. Get a good sear on both sides, about two minutes or so on each side, then reduce the heat or move it away from the fire and let it finish cooking to whatever doneness you like. Medium rare is the only way to go, as far as I'm concerned, which would be about another 5 or 6 minutes. Take the steak off and let it rest for a few minutes.

Slice the steak on the bias, plate up, then drizzle with a really good extra-virgin olive oil and give it a spritz of fresh lemon.

That's it. You can jazz it up with pesto or garlic or onions or whatever, but sometimes, the simplest things are the best.

Here's a good rub i use for grilled steak. in my normal measure, no amounts included. just eyeball it so you have enough to completely coat

finely chopped garlic
finely chopped rosemary
lime zest
alot of fresh cracked pepper
dash salt
juice of a lime
maybe a tablespoon of olive oil

combine all ingredients and rub evenly over steak. fyi, my personal fave cut is ribeye. i think it has the best marbling and comes out the most tender.

you want to grill this but on a lower heat setting, otherwise the rub gets a bit too overdone(burnt). i myself, only grill over charcoal outside. this gives a much better flavor than gas, in my humble, lol!
