5 Ideas for Dressing a Mouthwatering Steak

Posted on Aug 16 2018 - 8:55pm by Mike


Whenever I eat in my favorite restaurant in Atlanta, which is American Cut Steakhouse, I look forward not only to enjoying their steak but also the way they are presented. I like the way they are dressed, which is part of the dining experience. If you are wondering about the best way to dress your steak, keep on reading and learn from the tips that I will be sharing in the rest of this post.

Compound Butter

An easy way to customize your steak is to use compound butter. This will give the flavor an instant boost without taking the focus out of the meat. As the butter melts on the top of the steak, it gives it a rich flavor while also making it juicy. This is also great as it does not involve any form of cooking. All that you have to do is to mix softened salted butter, fresh herbs, dried herbs, spices, and citrus zest. This will make your steak taste like one of those that you can find in the best restaurants in Buckhead, Atlanta.


If you like Italian cuisine, a gremolata will be the perfect choice for a steak dressing. This is also easy to prepare, making it great for anyone who is inexperienced in the kitchen. To make a gremolata, all that you have to do is to mix finely chopped parsley, garlic, and lemon. Sprinkle it on the top of the steak and the bold flavor will make it stand out. Even just a small amount of this dressing will do a lot to enhance the flavor of the meat.

Olive Tapenade

For a fancy choice of a steak dressing, an olive tapenade will be an excellent choice. This will add a salty and garlicky dressing to complement the steak. Even on its own, an olive tapenade already tastes good but will taste even better when it is eaten with a steak. To make a homemade olive tapenade, all that you have to do is to combine green olives, black olives, anchovies, oregano, garlic, and lemon juice. When it becomes coarse, add olive oil.

Flavored Salt

Do not make things complicated when it comes to dressing a steak. After all, the goal should be to find a flavor that will enhance the taste of the meat and not a dressing that will not overpower the steak. The coarse and crunchy salt will add texture and flavor to the meat without being too much. Some of the best salt flavors to consider include bacon, citrus, and truffle.


This classic steak sauce will be another excellent dressing of choice. It can also be a meat marinade. It is also a no-cook sauce, which is why it will be effortless to prepare. To make this dressing, combine the ingredients, which include garlic, shallot, chili, vinegar, and salt. Mix in a bowl and let it sit for about ten minutes before adding oregano, parsley, and cilantro. Whisk it in oil and season with salt. Make sure that all the ingredients are finely chopped.

Do not make your steak boring! While the meat itself can already be flavorful on its own, you can elevate its flavor and presentation by adding the dressings that have been mentioned above.
