I learned most everything about cooking by watching my dad in the kitchen. He always cooks for our family gatherings, usually preparing whatever delicious meat will be the main course of our entrée. He smokes meats, grills meats, sears them in a pan, you name it, he's done it.
What I really took away when watching him cook was his ability to develop flavor through a very precise, (to him anyway,) amount of seasoning, as well as a clever use of whatever may be on hand. The creativity never missed me and I developed a passion for it, just as he has.
For this reason, and with Father's Day around the corner, I thought it would be fun to ask him, whom I consider an expert in this field, for his personal recipe, tips, and tricks to cook the perfect steak.
