12 Ways To Fix Steak

Sometimes we get in a rut and eat the same thing over and over again. Well, if you?ve been fixing steak for the past few years in the same old ways, it's time for your taste buds to come alive with flavor. It's time for your spirit to soar with joy when you stimulate your new taste buds in very different ways. Here are some ideas for you on different ways to fix steak.

1. Add a Touch of the Ocean

Cut a slit in a steak that's one and a half inches thick and stuff a raw oyster in it. Skewer the slit shut with a toothpick. Grill the steak in a skillet and then place the steak on a warm plate. Use the pan drippings to saut? scallions and garlic. Add a little oyster juice to the mixture, warm briefly in the pan and pour over the grilled steak. Warning: This one may be good for the sex drive!

2. Simplicity is Often Best

Brush steak with melted butter before grilling or barbecuing. Right before serving, add salt and pepper.

3. Garlic Lovers Will Love This One

Cut garlic cloves in half. Rub garlic cloves on both surfaces of the raw steak. Cook steak over fire until done. Add saut?ed onions, garlic, and parsley on top of steak when finished.

4. Papaya Rubs Tenderizers the Meat

With ripe papaya strips in your hand, rub the fruit into both surfaces of the steak before cooking. Use the fruit side, not the outer peel side. Set the steak aside at room temperature for 10 minutes. Repeat process two additional times. Then cook. This one helps improve digestion.

5. Mushroom Stuffed Steak

When your heart tells you to fix a steak as a comfort food, mushrooms may help.

With a big 2 inch t bone steak or porterhouse, make several slits into the meat large enough to stuff a teaspoon of mushroom into the slit. Soak fresh button mushrooms in water for 20 minutes, then drain and dice. Add a sprinkle of herbs such as basil, oregano, dill, and rosemary. Mix together. Spoon into the slits. Close slits with a toothpick. Cook steak. Serve with mushroom gravy or mushroom soup on top steak.

6. Breakfast Steak

While steak is grilling in the broiler or in a skillet, fry an egg in clarified butter in another small skillet. Use clarified butter; you?ve probably been using regular butter all these years! Cook the egg sunny side up. When the steak is finished cooking to your preferred doneness, transfer it to a warm plate. Add the egg on top. With a little salt and pepper, you?re ready to go.

7. Cowboy Style Outside on the Range

With all the ways to fix a steak, cowboys loved to fire up the campfire and add dried cow manure to the fire. After the fire is at the right temperature, add the steak to the grate about 4 inches away from the heat source. Salt and pepper to taste. One cowboy reported that he wasn?t too thrilled about the preparation method until he tasted the steak. There were no leftovers that night!

8. Shake the Steak With Herbs

Get a plastic bag or ziplock bag. Add 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, a few tablespoons of olive oil, a half cup wine, and herbs such as 1/2 teaspoon basil, oregano, summer savory, thyme, lemon pepper and salt. Just shake the herbs into the bag into a surprising combination. Add the steak to the bag. Shake, thus coating the steak with the mixture. Remove steak from bag and grill. This steak will be filled with flavor. You?ll want to call all your friends and tell them how this one tastes.

9. Shake The Steak with Herbs and Flour

There are so many variations of how to fix steak it would amaze even your grandfather.

This time, get another plastic bag. Add 1/2 cup white wine, a few tablespoons of olive oil, a few tablespoons of flour, and herbs such as 1/2 teaspoon basil, oregano, summer savory, thyme, lemon pepper and salt. Add the steak to the bag. Shake, thus coating the steak with the mixture. Remove steak from bag and grill. Serve with a bottle of wine.

10. Love Anchovies? Fix a Steak with Them!

Fix your steak as usual, grilling it, broiling it or barbecuing it. When it's finished, add a salty topping of diced green olives with red pimento and anchovies.

11. Kiwi Peach Steak

Of all the ways to fix a steak, this is my favorite. Take one very ripe kiwi and one very ripe peach and dice into very small pieces. These fruits should be very juicy. Mix in a nonmetallic bowl. Use this as your marinade for the meat: add the steak to the bowl, covering the steak with the mixture. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 6 hours. Then when you?re read to cook the steak, wipe off the fruit from the steak and place on grill. Great flavor. Serve with peach pudding when you?re feeling fruity!

12. Soy Sauce Standby

Use soy sauce as a marinade. Add up to 1/2 cup wine and kitchen herbs to the marinade. Soak steak in mixture for 30 minutes prior to cooking. Makes a very tasty steak.
