-Good quality grilling steaks, sirloin or rib steaks are good
-Extra virgin olive oil
- Dried red pepper flakes
- Garlic Powder
- Sea Salt
- Cracked Black Pepper
The method to these is pretty simple. It's just about being smart with your ingredients.
-Bash up the salt and other steak spice ingredients in a mortar and pestle. I didn't give quantities since there's no real science as to how to mix it up. You want to be able to taste each of the ingredients quite clearly, and make a slightly spicy and really tasty spice mix.
-Place the steaks in a casserole dish large enough to hold your steaks, and pour over your olive oil to get a good coat.
-Season your steaks and press the spice into the steaks so it sticks reasonably well. Leave it to marinate for a little while. I do it for about 15 minutes, but it doesn't really matter how long.
-Get the BBQ as red-hot as possible, and toss the steaks on. Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on how well done you want them. Continue to brush the steaks with the leftover marinade/spice until they've been cooked.
-Leave for a few minutes to allow the meat to settle, than serve as hot as possible.
Easy, quick, sexy and damn tasty. Probably the best steak I've ever had, excluding [b][i]none[/i][/b].
:Note: The spice mix is actually the closest approximation I could come up with to a ready-made spice mix we can buy here in Canada. For those of you that live up north, it's called Clubhouse Montreal Steak Spice.
