    That was my thought. With some gorgonzola.

    I almost never eat steak now, but a few years ago I read that
    steak places do that. It does add a nice touch to the steak.

    Going back to the OP... I love marinades, but I never marinate
    good steaks. So my vote is with the consensus opinion.

    Agree 102%. (I'm a little feverish today.)

    Balsamico can contribute. Add a little to the pan gravy if you're
    cooking on the stovetop. Or you can top a broiled steak with a
    compound butter that has a little balsamico in it.

    Shelley, why are you yapping? This is an actual cooking thread.

    I'm sure it'd be fine for Old Goat Steak. You are willing your body to
    culinary science, right?

    Don't you slather your prime rib with Heinz red... where's Stanley?

    I don't care for butter on any cut of beef (not kosher), but I enjoy a
    good beef steak smothered with a heap of well caramelized onions.

    You put a pat of butter on top of a nicely broiled rib-eye steak?
    Why?

    Agreed, I've had that, too. Just a shimmer on a flat iron steak,
    it was delicious.

    Flat iron steak is one of my favorite cuts. I've never tried it with a
    butter pat, but it might add to it. I will be trying this.

    I had a steak tonight for an early dinner to celebrate my mom's
    birthday. We decided rather than cook, to get take out from Outback. I
    got there an hour late so my steak and baked potato were horribly cold.
    My fault. I move very slowly these days, but I actually drove! I've
    mostly gotten off of the prescription pain meds but I took one of the
    long acting along with ibuprofen tonight. I guess the outing today was
    too much. But I need to get back to living.

    Absolutely not re the catsup! Ugh. If it were a lesser steak,
    I'd marinate it. A prime rib... either s + P, or that plus
    butter. I rarely eat steaks now, and have only tried the butter
    once or twice. It is very nice but not the way I have
    traditionally done it. I wouldn't mind some nice browned onions
    on the side.

    Sure sure. Take a half pound of butter and whip it with some fresh chopped
    parsley then form into a log and wrap tightly in plastic then chill. That's
    another great way to top of a fine steak. Parsley is a great flavor
    enhancer.
