The key to an Outback style steak is searing the steak on both sides, in a mega hot cast iron skillet. you can adapt this some what to your outdoor grills by starting the steaks over the hot coals just till the outside gets that seal, then move the steaks or, move the coals from under the steaks and let them finish cooking over indirect heat.


2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 dash coriander
1 dash turmeric

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.

To prepare steaks with this seasoning: Preheat a flat grill or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle some of the seasoning blend over both sides of each cut of beef.

Grill the steaks on each side to your desired level of doneness. Be sure to use tongs to sear all the edges of each steak to a rich brown color.

This recipe yields about 4 teaspoons of seasoning.

For a gourmet variation, add couple tablespoons of red wine to the pan on high heat after removing the steak. Stir the wine around to remove the browned residue from the pan (deglaze it), and when the sauce has reduced by a third or so, pour it over your steak -- flavor bonanza!
