I like to buy a bunch of superior cuts when they are on sale (USDA choice) and freeze them. Then I pull one out in the morning and throw it on the grill in the eve.

These don't really require marinating, so just put a rub on them and coat with olive oil. Taste just great!

For marinade I like a simple mix of wine, soy sauce, olive oil and water. I add spices on top of the steak later when I am ready to grill.

In the summer I grow giant basil in a pot near the grill. I cover the top of the steak with some huge basil leaves while grilling. Keeps the juices in and adds superb flavor.

That sounds incredible!

I'm coming round for tea Dom, hope that's OK Big Grin?

RE: Steak
Either well done, or you're doing it wrong! Give me that deep smokey flavor.

And I like a good T-bone, even though you don't get as much meat.

Well, there won't be any steak with tea. Steak goes with wine or beer.

Hmmm, marinading tough cuts in tea ought to work for breaking down the tissue... ought to give that a shot some day.

RE: Steak
Hey Banquo, have you considered barbecuing instead of grilling? If you like a deep smokey flavor, you should give low and slow a try. With beef, I prefer apple wood above all else, including hickory. I cut down a neighbors apple tree for him this spring. Some of the smaller stuff looks to be ready for October, and next year I'll have all the apple wood I want! Woo hoo!!

So many cats, so few good recipes.

If anyone wants apple wood, I have it to spare. I live in an apple orchard.

Well done is just wrong. I cry for the T-bones you have sacrificed. Weeping

If you want deep, smoky flavor then cook at lower heat for a longer period and add wood chips.
