You may be afraid of making steak too salty or overpowering it with spices, but trust us: Caution doesn’t pay when it comes to seasoning. Since you can’t season the steak’s interior, playing it too safe will deprive you of rich flavours and a bold crust.
What to do instead: Season the meat heartily on both sides about 35 to 40 minutes before cooking. Another mistake? Not knowing how to grill each specific cut of meat.
