In Portugal, I would have my steak rare which was almost a blue, and sprinkle some lemon juice on it with a little salt-and-pepper and have it with mustard on the side in the many fine and relatively inexpensive informal restaurants in Lisbon , or Estuarial (bad spelling ) Cascais . Slightly off subject but made me think of it , interesting part of my life.
I do agree that steak is best eaten simply. I will try some chopped or sliced raw organic garlic as it is so good for you anyway.
Speaking of chicken and steak, a butcher in Queens NY, suggested I try a chicken steak for its inexpensiveness and value for money . Worst piece of goddamn meat I ever had in my entire life. I sautéed it simply like a regular steak and it had an odd flavor, which I find difficult to describe. The only thing this may be suitable for, is cold as hell in a steak salad with lots of mayo and lemon juice and all kinds of other things. My experience ,most of the time, never listen to anybody in Queens.
