Need advice (non smoking meat this go around)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I am cooking some NY strip steaks for dinner for my in-laws. I got some Durkee steak dust to season them. Has anyone used this before? Usually when I cook strips I pan sear them to lock in the juice and then bake them in the oven for finishing. I have used rubs before when doing this, but not a 'dust'. are they essentially the same thing? I appreciate any input.

I am not familiar with this exact product but "dusts" that I have seen before are typically just a finer ground seasoning.  If you are like me then you associate a rub with a coarser grind but I would think the ingredients would be similar.  That being said I would also go a little lighter with the dusting as in my experience it is much easier to over-season something with the finer grinds.  Once you taste it you can always add more if you feel it's inadequate.  I don't have any experience preparing steaks using your method but I hope they turn out great!  Strips have been one of my favorite cuts as of late, I'm sure you'll have no problems impressing the in-laws.

I would not use anything but some salt and pepper and would sear them on a very hot BBQ grill.
