Spiced Steak

  • Place steak on a cutting board and trim any excess fat. Mix the seasonings in a small bowl and then completely coat the steak with the mixture

The biggest tips that I have when you are cooking steak is to
2.) Slice it against the natural grain
These to steps help keep the steak both tender and juicy. I always let my steak rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
