I need a recipe on fixing steak. I am getting kind of bored eating fried steak and mashed potatoes with gravy.....well...actually that sounds pretty good! No, but seriously does anyone know how to cook steak a different way? I am up for all suggestions! Thanks a lot!

Drunken Flat Iron Steak SUBMITTED BY: Cocina JNOTS "A friend tried something like this in Texas and this was our version of it." INGREDIENTS * 1 (2 pound) flat iron steak * 1/4 cup dry vermouth * 1/4 cup sweet vermouth * 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil * 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes DIRECTIONS 1. Place steak into a large resealable bag or shallow dish. Pour in the dry vermouth and sweet vermouth and stir to coat the steak. Seal or cover and refrigerate for 6 hours to marinate. 2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove steak from the bag and discard the marinade. Season the steak on both sides with red pepper flakes. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or to your desired degree of doneness. Let rest for a few minutes before serving. ---------------------------- Creole Pan-Broiled Flat Iron Steak SUBMITTED BY: EL-LOCO-FOODS "My wife prefers my pan-broiled steaks over grilled Filet Mignon, New York Strip or Sirloin any day. The key is not so much the cut of the meat, rather how it is prepared to give it its magic." INGREDIENTS * 2 pounds flat iron steak * 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™) * 2 tablespoons lime juice * 2 teaspoons garlic salt * 1/8 teaspoon salt * 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper * 2 1/4 teaspoons blackened seasoning * 1/2 cup butter * 1/2 cup water DIRECTIONS 1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Season the steak with hot pepper sauce. Sprinkle or mist with a little lime juice and season lightly with just a portion of the garlic salt, salt, black pepper and blackened seasoning. 2. Place the steak in the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 20 minutes, or to your desired degree of doneness, turning and adding more seasoning every 5 minutes. 3. Remove steaks to a serving platter and keep warm. Stir butter and water into the pan, removing any browned bits from the bottom to make a gravy. Season with additional garlic salt, salt and pepper to taste. Serve steaks with gravy drizzled over them. -------------------------------------------- Caribbean Beef Loin Steaks SUBMITTED BY: rosidaisy "These steaks are flavored with a Caribbean-style marinade. INGREDIENTS * 1 fluid ounce coconut-flavored rum * 1/4 teaspoon salt * 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper * 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon * 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder * 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano * 1/4 teaspoon dried sage * 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar * 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice * 4 slices onion * 6 (8 ounce) beef top sirloin steaks * 1 tablespoon olive oil DIRECTIONS 1. Whisk together the rum, salt, pepper, cinnamon, powder, oregano, sage, vinegar, and lemon juice in a bowl; pour into a gallon-sized, resealable plastic bag. Add the onion and steaks to the marinade. Seal the bag, squeezing out as much air as possible. Allow to marinate in refrigerator 2 1/2 hours. 2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the steaks with the skillet covered to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium rare.

I broil or use the good old George Foreman grill! Use Lawry's meat tenderizer (has salt in it), pepper, a little garlic powder, and plenty of Worchestershire sauce. Mmmm.. The cut makes a difference too. Ribeye is the most tender. Round is the toughest. The marbling (fat running through) helps tenderize. Bake some potatoes and have a salad! Or put the steak in a casserole dish and spice it up (I use the same spices as above), add a can of cream of mushroom soup, and spread it over the steaks. Bake on about 325 for a couple of hours. My family loves it!
