get a "montreal steak seasoning" from the spice aisle at your grocery store.

simple and seasons the steak very well. i've used it with that pan-seared method with excellent results.

Can you use a liquidy sauce for panseared? Sorry I'm a cooking noob.

a little salt, a little pepper thats it. you want to enhance the flavor of the meat not mask it with other crap.

For a pan seared ribeye like that, I "strongly" reccomend trying it with some nice bacon wrapped around the edge, although it's easier with a thick filet that isn't too wide.
It needs to be a good quality smoked bacon imo.

I first use a steak hammer to soften end then marinate. It is some what salty so its up to you how long. you can marinate it as little as like 30-45 min.
Afterwards i like to baste in on while it grills.
If you are in a rush you can just bast it on though if you do there needs to be a little more garlic, more past like so it stick on.

EDIT: im sure it would work with pan, but i would make a past of the rest of the marinade, then baste it on while cooking. Remember that a steak needs only be turned twice. Three times at the MOST.

Only when you're cooking terrible, cheap steak do you want to use sauces of any kind. A nice steak should have some salt and pepper, and MAYBE one or two other seasonings such as garlic. IMO, that is.

Im not so sure ive not substituted, prefer not to. I wont say yes or no because i havent tryed it. Im sure it would be a little less salty but you might loose some of the steaks flavor. Whats great about this marinade is that you can still tast the steak, the stuff only adds a little bit.
Pm me and ill make up a batch tomarrow and give exact quantities.

Instead of regular kosher salt try seasoned salt, olive oil, lemon, pepper.
