So for valentines, i'm gonna grill up some good steaks for me and my woman. I know how to grill and my steaks usually come out pretty kick ass. but these are really expensive filet's and i wanna make sure i do them justice. normally, i just marinate the steaks in olive oil for 24 hours. then as i'm grilling them i put crushed pepper and sea salt on them and thats all i do. i find that marinades and rubs typically detract from the natural meat flavor. But i was wondering if anyone else had any methods that are good and aren't too overbearing (if anyone says dale's i'll kill them)
Also, for sides i usually steam or grill asparagus or green beans and maybe have bread or a salad but i was wondering if anyone had any different suggestions for more creative sides.
and lastly, how do you saute mushrooms? i usually just throw them in a pan with butter or olive oil and a little soy sauce but i have to admit, they are good but not great. i wanna throw some shrooms on top of the steak but i was gonna see if anyone had any killer mushroom recipes.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
