When preparing steak you can do it several ways, but here is one way. The first thing you do is to make a marinade of your choice. Take your steak and season it with the seaonings of your choice. Salt, pepper, meat tenderizer and any other seasoning you want to add. Let the meat set out at room temperature for about ten minutes. In the meantime add your marinade to a bowl or bag that you can stick your steak in. Let the steak marinade anywhere from twenty minutes to overnight in the refrigerator. Get your pan coated with the oil of your choice and get the pan screaming hot. Drop in the steak and cook. Depending on how well you like your steak done will determine the amount of time it is cooked.
