I just got back from Wal-Mart... I have a giant T-bone and a George Foreman grill (yes, I am a college student) and I was wondering what do you guys recommend for a good steak rub? I realize that I forgot to pick up some Tide, so I'm going back there tommorow and I can pick up any necessary ingredients for an awesome dinner.

I use KC Masterpiece steak seasoning, but add a fair amount of sugar to it. Delicious rub.

Cracked Pepper and garlic. George Foreman grills will ruin your steak though.

Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning is pretty good as well.

first some oil, hand lotion, or anything slippery, a PRONO movie and.....uhhhh

You WERE NOT talking about a TUBE STEAK..... nevermind

I hope you didn't by the T-bone from Wal-Mart. Between the 12% saline solution they add to it to help preserve it and give it a little extra weight and the toughness of their meat I would pass. Wal-Mart has the nastiest meat...except for their 10lb bag of chicken quarters for $4.50.

If you are grilling (not over an open flame) try coarse ground black pepper and garlic & onion powder. If you want salt, use sea salt after cooking.

coarse ground black pepper and sea salt or kosher salt.

Take a nice cast iron skillet and get it as hot as you can. Then plop the steak in it and let it sear one side, wait untill there is some smoke to turn it. Then sear the other side and finish in an oven.

you guy's don't like the taste of beef do you.

a good rub will BRING OUT the taste of beef.

a BAD rub will cover up the taste of beef.

My roommate insists on marinating his steaks. I tell him he is wasting perfectly good meat, but he doesnt listen. he then proceeds to cook it to a VERY WELL DONE.

what a waste

My girlfriend asks why I don't put steak sauce on my steaks. I told her a good steak has it's own sauce cooked in and doesn't need it.

A little Jack Daniels (not at WalMart, but as a college student, you should have some)

I am slowly getting my wife to get a taste for what good steak is about. She use to put "sauce" on her steak. She doesn't now.

I'm a minimalist when it comes to steak rubs. If it is good meat, all it really needs is freshly ground black pepper and kosher salt. When I decide to get crazy, or if it is a sub-standard piece of meat, I break out the Montreal Steak seasoning.

Fresh cracked pepper piled on with kosher salt... really good stuff
