Thread: T Bone try out opinion before I destroy the steaks

    Default T Bone try out opinion before I destroy the steaks

    Bought 4 Big THICK T Bones yesterday
    as been a while since had a T BONE

    Idea is to just chop up some sage Oregano and a little Rosemary
    salt the steaks with sea salt on Both sides

    Spread the herbs on both sides and leave in Pyrex dish in the fridge
    covered with wrap marinate about ten minutes before in a bit of EVOO
    and half a teaspoon maybe just a splash of Teriaki Marinade
    Just char grill

    Take off cover with foil on warmed plate then eat with salad on the side
    easy Sunday evening meal and the animals can fight over the bones.

    What is concerning me a tad is the use of the Teriyaki (even if just a
    tiny bit but for some reason its in my head to use this mix of flavours

    Any thoughts ?

    I never use herbs on a steak. They burn rather than flavor, IMO, when you
    cook that hot. A ten minute marinade is not going to do much.

    If you want the herb flavor, make an herbed butter and put some on the steak
    when it comes off the grill. I'm not so sure I'd use Italian herbs with
    teriyaki either, but tha tis a personal taste thing.

    I agree with Ed. I salt & pepper a good steak like T-bone shortly before
    slapping it on the grill, grill maybe 4 ~ 5 minutes per side, and move
    off to the side until cooked to the doneness you like. Making herb
    butter is easy. Just chop up the herbs you want, mash them into room
    temperature unsalted butter, roll in wax paper for shaping, then freezer
    for at least ten minutes, and enjoy.

    I'm not an herb butter fan myself. The OP mentioend olive oil;
    the right way to go with olive oil and a steak is to drizzle
    it on right after cooking. This is how it is done with the
    famous Florentine steaks in Italy (which are, I believe, a
    giant T-Bone, or maybe porterhouse).

    I prefer brushing my steak after cooking with softened, plain unsalted
    butter. No herbs or other flavors.

    Butter seduces. Olive oil seduces. I am more seduced by olive
    oil on a steak, but I can see the seductivity of butter as well.

    The teriyaki was dictating the marinade time. Normally I rarely
    adulterate or alter the taste of a damn fine steak .
    Just a plain steak lover & heck Tbone not a bad taste .
    When no one can see me going feral bliss is gnawing on a good T bone
    left over bone after the great meat has gone ---------- Cooked rare to
    medium BTW .

    I have this thing about people who murder beautiful meat by well done
    and horror of horrors *extra* well done .

    I like olive oil for many things, but I like how softened butter melts on
    the surfance of a hot steak, different than drizzling an oil or already
    melted butter over the steak.

    Hi Cyberpurrs - I'm hoping you and the nice guy have been having a nice
    week-end :-) BTW, I'm being sympathetic since I'm a sloppy writer when
    not writing for work. But I try to make up for it most of time by
    thinking nice thoughts.

    Take care of yourself now,

    Good morning Wayne.

    I like steak enough that I will show it love by using EVOO one day,
    plain butter the next time (for the same reason you said), and the time
    after that I might do the herb butter if I'm not too busy drooling for
    the nice steak :-)

    I wish I could find the USB cable for my camera. I think one of the cats
    swiped it. I just cooked a t-bone for myself a few days ago and took a
    pic of it. I never use herbs on my steaks. Just a bit of s&p and maybe
    a bit of garlic powder. Delish...

    IMO, the T-Bone (or Porterhouse) is the very best cut. I would NEVER
    marinate one.

    I consider if it turns out medium, I have screwed up. I chew the

    I won't cook a steak well done. I will begrudgingly cook it med well,
    and if the person complains, they can put it back on. I could also
    offer directions to the nearest Burger King. If I knew anyone who
    demanded well done steak, and I knew that the person would be
    visiting, I could buy reduced (old) steaks to put in the freezer
    especially for their visits.

    My thoughts are rather simple - If these are good quality expensive steaks
    why change their flavor?

    I good steak is a gift from God.

    Maybe some salt - let the people consuming said gifts screw up their own
    steaks.

    If you want to make an herb butter or a blue cheese butter your choice.

    Agreed. If you want more flavor, make a sauce to serve on the side.
    Bearnaise is yummy. SO is a red wine-herb reduction.
