Nothing. If I have to put anything on it, it reflects poorly on the chef and or the cut of meat.

Most of the steaks I eat are self prepared, so I use nothing

Most of the time, none.

But there are occasions when a good bernais, an au poivre or a chimichurri can be quite satisfying.

Chimichuri

But I sub the parsley with chopped kalamata olives and Use balsamic vinegar. This sauce is great stuffed in pork loin also.

Favorite steak topping?
Smoked salt and black pepper. Nothing else.

I don't mind an occasional cabernet reduction sauce on a steak if I'm eating at a restaurant and they offer that, but I do that only for the variety. Why mess with perfection?

Sometimes I like to make a sauté of garlic, bacon, mushrooms, and onion in olive oil and a couple hits of worchestire sauce. Add in a few red pepper flakes and so good

re: Favorite steak topping?


normally salt and pepper and someone who knows wtf they are doing is all that's needed for a good steak, however my dad's sauce that he makes is pretty good too, half a cup onion sauteed then some Worcestershire sauce a couple tablespoons of lemon juice and half a stick of butter and all is right in the world

I've had port wine reduction sauces, but never one from a cabernet. It was actually quite good as it also had porchini mushrooms to add an earthiness to the sauce.

Does Beef Wellington count as a topped steak? If so, then it gets my vote.

Smoked salt


I love smoked salt. Used some last night when I roasted some pecans. Excellent.

My serious answer about steak toppings:

I don't care for seafood toppings on steak. On the side is fine.

I don't go for the "nothing on my steak" deal though I understand it. Sometimes, all I want is a little salt and pepper. Sometimes, I like a brown butter parsley sauce. Sometimes, I like a blue cheese butter pat on top. Blue cheese and beef are a great combo. On occasion, a little bearnaise floats my boat. Sometimes, I use Cavender's rather than salt and pepper. Depends on my mood and the eaters involved. Steaks have been served with various sauces and toppings for a gazillion years. If you like it that way, eat it that way.
