For those who wish to add additional flavors to the steak, the following is a simple, elegant sauce.
Smoky's Steak Baste
4-6 T. extra virgin olive oil, peanut oil or
(what the heck) butter.
6 T. minced shallots or mild garlic and onion mixed
6 T. Shiitake mushrooms
2 lemons or limes, juiced
1/2 t. ground bay
1/4 t. ground thyme
Saute the shallots in the oil until clear, then add mushrooms and saute until tender. Pour oil into metal bowl suitable for taking to the grill, add lemon/lime juice and mix well. Cover the steaks on all surfaces and set aside, covered, while preparing the fire.
When the grill is fully heated, drain and reserve the oil based baste. Place the steaks on the grill. Baste and turn when the steak tells you. Baste before each turn.
Return oil to veggies and 1/4 cup red wine, add ground bay leaf and thyme. Heat and deglaze. Serve over the steaks.
Good gobbling to all,
