Usually when I cook steak, I cook it the same way: on a tray in the oven at about 400-450 degrees with small pats of butter, salt and pepper. About 5 minutes or more per side.

I used to enjoy the steak a lot more than I do now, and I'm getting a little bit tired of this.

Can you all share steak recipes (I do not have an outdoor grill) that are relatively easy to make?

Thanks!

It's wonderful seared in a screaming hot cast iron skillet then finish in the oven at 450 and season simply with salt and pepper.

However, I do often like to slice steak against the grain into thin strips, marinate and thread onto skewers to grill. Then I fold the steak strips up in butter lettuce leaves and drizzle with a glaze such as lemongrass and garlic or basil mint pesto or a satay. This works well with lots of Thai recipes.

Compound butters are yummy on steak. Just add some fresh herbs, white wine and lemon juice to whipped butter, roll into logs and freeze. Or you can use chipotle chiles or any flavouring you want.

I also like to make various rubs including one with cacao nibs I grind and blend with seasonings. Or you can grind dried mushrooms into a powder and rub onto the meat. Delicious! Wet rubs are also yummy.

Making mushroom duxelles is a good way to add some flavour. You can make some lovely pan sauces with red wine, cognac and cream or simply steak au poivre.

Cut into strips and stir fry in a pan with onions and peppers to make fajitas. I season mine with chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Then put in soft corn tortillas (homamde if you can make them or Mission brand is gluten-free).

Put in the slow cooker and top with onions, bell peppers, a can of tomatoes, and a couple chopped garlic cloves. Add a tablespoon of either balasmic vinegar or wine (white or red works) and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 6-8 hours or untitl eh steak is fall apart tender...this recipe works great for cubed steaks or any steak that is normally tough.

The way we like steak is putting it in a dutch oven with some oil....brown it both sides, and season it lightly with rosemary and bay leaf....then add on top of that some chopped celery, a small can of mushrooms, and top that all with a can of diced tomatoes....then turn the heat down to just simmer and cook maybe 45 min to a hour...or till the steak is tender....perhaps they call this swiss steak...?...

We usually marinade a good quality steak in La Choy Teriyaki, Italian dressing and some garlic, in the am. Grill or pan fry for dinner.

Just bought some San-J Teriyaki stir-fry and Marinade (new to me and marked Gluten Free). Going to give it a try.

It's easy to make your own:

Italian dressing

Honey

La Choy Soy Sauce

Dry Mustard

Ginger

Garlic Powder

And add for a change..... Get a rack of pork/beef ribs. Dust liberally with Emeril's Rib Rub in the morning, store in refer until dinner time. Grill or bake in the oven for dinner....it's good stuff! ;)

We use Koser salt instead of regular salt. It really brings out the flavor.
