Men love steak. It’s a simple fact of life. As there are many ways to skin a cat, there are many cuts of beef that can be marinated and cooked in an endless number of combinations. A simple, yet very tasty way to dress up a steak is with Worcestershire Sauce and Montreal Steak seasoning. Lea & Perrins has been making the original Worcestershire sauce since 1835. The main ingredients are vinegar and molasses, but the entire recipe still remains a family secret. After soaking up your T-bone or Filet with the Worcestershire Sauce, rub on some Montreal Steak Seasoning. The coarse salt, red and black pepper, garlic, and paprika will give your meat extra kick and flavor. Next, just cook to your desired wellness and enjoy. It’s that easy.
