Regarding preparing steaks, I'll copy what I wrote in the other thread:
My family grills with charcoal. Just can't get past the idea that a gas grill is cooking on the stove but doing it outside.
We don't marinate steaks (usually ribeye), but sometimes use Montreal steak seasoning. Tenderize it a bit. Then put it on the hot side of the grill, a little bit on each side to sear, and then shift to the "cool" side to cook. We use a mix of different types of wood chips to add smoke flavor. The steaks turn out extremely juicy and flavorful.

Steak is one of those things where you can cook it so many ways and have it still taste good. I still wish I had my Weber, there is something about food cooked over charcoal that can't be replicated.
If you have ever watched BBQ with Franklin (he had a too brief PBS series) he did an entire episode about steak. He had a super simple technique for grilling up steaks.

Give me some mashed or cut up resdskin potatoes, and a beer, and I'm happy.

Not against it. I can definitely eat a medium staek, but I prefer it closer to the medium-rare side, but not quite still mooing. What I don't understand is well-done. I just can't deal with that.

SmithAir747 wrote:I like my steak as tender as possible (medium rare at least) and eat it in small bites, due to my jaw deformity, malocclusion, and consequent difficulty biting, chewing, and swallowing. My two favourite steaks are New York strip and ribeye (when I find them on sale at King Soopers). I rarely ever go out to eat, so I cook all my own meals at home. I cook steaks and other meats and seafood in cast iron skillets. What other good steaks are nice and tender?
I am thinking of marinating my next steak in red wine to further flavour (and more importantly) tenderise the meat. Should I add things to the red wine to make a marinade from it, or will the wine itself be sufficient? What kind of red wine?

For a steak, though?
I'm happy to use it for all kinds of meats, including chicken.

Montreal steak seasoning.

Hey! My girlfriend and I (30 years old) always have dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets in the freezer and usually eat them on Tuesday nights when we both get home late from our respective rehearsals. They always get eaten with ketchup or Chick-fil-A sauce!
Now for chicken fried steak creamy white country gravy is key. And it has to be swimming in it! It's hard to find a chicken fried steak that's just right for me. The best one I've ever had was a restaurant in Midland, Texas that was near my hotel. Best (and worst) swim team travel trip ever!
