    Garlic butter is great. So is horseradish mayo. Lots of spices make good rubs (chili powders especially). This time of year grilled veggies such as yellow summer squash or zucchini with onions are a great side.
    Life is short: Void the warranty.

    We have steak once a week in our house. We serve it with okra and eggs. To make the steak I just season it and put it on the foreman. The okra is cooked in butter, salt and pepper, and then the eggs are cooked last. As long as you season your steak and don't overcook it, it's kind of hard to mess up.

    Thanks all for the fabulous ideas!!

    Mike- your such a caveman..LOL

    the ending result was I put the steak in a pan with butter, thick sliced mushrooms and onions, sprinkled with Mrs Dash garlic and Herb and baked the sucker for 30 min. It was PERFECT.

    In the end, I used a combination of suggestions here- you all are rock stars!

    I have never baked steak, but it sounds like a great idea. Was your steak rare, medium, or done after the thirty minutes?

    If you have a Hispanic market near you buy either a bottle of Mojo Criollo or make your own. Make your own with bitter orange, olive oil, a bit of water, oregano, garlic, onion powder and a dash of cumin. I add a pinch of sugar as well, but you can skip it. Marinate for an hour or so. I just discovered flat iron steaks, which I marinate in it, throw on the grill for 5 minutes each side then slice really thin and eat on a bed of lettuce with sour cream and salsa. OMG, brilliant!

    My favorite is to either grill the steaks on a charcoal grill or cook them stove top in a cast iron skillet. No salt, fresh-ground black pepper to taste, and cook to rare. Top with onions & mushrooms caramelized in butter, ghee, or olive oil & that's it.
    Another favorite is cook the steak the same, then cover it with homemade au jus. I eat a lot of prime rib & make my own au jus from the drippings. I freeze the leftover gravy & usually have some with my "regular" steaks.

    One tip on homemade au jus... after carving the meat pour the blood from the carving plate back into the au jus- it really sets off the flavor.
    NOTE: If there's no blood on the carving plate you have destroyed the meat. Give it to the dog, stay away from the meat counter, and make an appointment with a mental health care provider as soon as possible.

    I know I'm a bit late to the party, but whipping some butter and blue cheese together in a food processor makes an awesome steak topping. It softens the blue cheese up a bit and the whole thing is more melty.
