A great seasoning for your favorite cut of steak was found in William Rice's book "Steak Lovers Cookbook." Which gives credit to Chef Mike of Gibsons Restaurant in Chicago. A very easy recipe to make ahead... make plenty as you'll find many other cuts meats and seafood to use it on. The recipe calls for either a blender or food processor but I find the food processor gives more control over the grind. I like it to be more of a coarse grind. I tried it with a blender and it was very fine and hard to control.
