Topic: Properly seasoning a steak.

On an episode of Restaurant Impossible, the chef makes a "properly seasoned" choice steak taste better than a prime steak. What the fuck is in that seasoning? 

:wtf:

I usually do very basic salt and fresh black pepper on a prime steak from Costco. Grilled, never pan fried.

Here's what we use around here, it was invented by some folks that live in same town that I live in back when they owned a steakhouse here called the Whiteway:

Brush lightly with olive oil, salt and coarsely ground fresh cracked pepper. 

Grill or broil if you don't have a grill.

Usually marinate it with some Montreal Steak Seasoning and a bottle of Zinfandel.  I add some wasabi paste just before I put it in the pan.

Marinade.. What cut of meat?

Salt and pepper only. Butter can help for poorer quality meat.

­I marinate it in that Moores marinade that I posted a pic of up-thread and slice up some onions, put it in a pyrex pan, stick it in the oven at 425 for about 25 minutes, flip it, let it cook another 15 or 20 minutes, until the onions are soft and translucent and the steak has cooked through so there is no pink in the center, serve with A1 type sauce, buttered garlic toast and a salad, maybe a baked potato - usually not.

Yeah. So how the fuck did they make a choice steak taste better on the show? :wtf:

­Huh?

No, if I'm making pot-roast I use a Boston butt, cut up some potatoes, carrots, onions, marinate it in the Moores and cook it covered in foil in the glass pan at 350 for about 2-1/2 or 3 hours until the meat is falling apart.

They probably added MSG. Most seasonings have it whether it is on the label or not.

Fuck, I bet that's it. He was saying how they could save $2.75 per steak by going down a grade and changing the seasoning. I bet you're right!

A lot of people are unfamiliar with the effect of MSG. They rave about this or that seasoning, but what they are really doing is raving about the MSG, which in the right amounts and on the right food really does make food taste amazing.

To hide it on the label, they use other ingredients that naturally have glutamate ions, in particular yeast extract, or autolyzed yeast.

Glutamic acid (E 620)2

Monopotassium glutamate (E 622)

Calcium glutamate (E 623)

Monoammonium glutamate (E 624)

Magnesium glutamate (E 625)

Natrium glutamate

Anything “hydrolyzed”

Any “hydrolyzed protein”

Calcium caseinate, Sodium caseinate

Yeast extract, Torula yeast

Yeast food, Yeast nutrient

Autolyzed yeast

When I discovered Montreal steak seasoning, it was life changing.

Akins, that sounds like wayyy too much time to cook a steak! It's going to be tough.

­No one in my family eats steak that is pink in the center.

I always order my steak medium. It took me a long time to figure out that fully cooked steak is tough. 

MSG or not, Montreal steak seasoning is the shit.

­It's gritty.

I don't like gritty. :thumbdown:
