If one were to make a list of the simple pleasures in life, a delicious, flame-grilled steak would be near the top of the list.

Unfortunately, the preparation of a steak can go wrong for several reasons, from the freshness of the beef to the duration of the meat’s cooking time.

One critical mistake that’s easy to avoid with a little bit of knowledge is a badly-seasoned steak. Overwhelming seasoning mixes can take one’s attention away from the quality of the meat, and underseasoned meat can be bland and unappetizing.

Choosing the right blend of herbs and spices to season a steak will highlight the meat’s best qualities and complement the steak’s flavors without overwhelming them. Knowing how to do this is truly half of the battle when learning how to prepare a proper steak.

So, without further ado, here are our recommendations for the best herbs and spices to use when seasoning a dry-rub steak.

  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sage

These herbs and spices work together to bring out the juiciness and flavor of a good steak. Be sure to season about an hour before putting your steak on the grill. Happy eating!
