best time to apply steak seasoningMake sure the steak is dry and not wet before adding your seasoning. You can pat it with a paper towel to dry it off prior to adding your seasoning. Apply the seasoning on both sides of the steak. Use a generous amount, massaging with your hand until the surface of the meat is totally covered. Turn the steak over and apply to the other side. Cover and leave in the refrigerator overnight. If you are short on time, let your steak sit for at least an hour after applying seasoning if you can. Make sure to choose a steak that is thick, at least ¾ inch think. Using a seasoning that includes a coarser salt, such as sea salt, is often preferable for steaks because of the flavor it brings out in the meat.

    Thanks for the great tips for seasoning steak. I’ve had some steak before that doesn’t taste like anything, so when I cook it in the future, I want to avoid that. Why is it good to rub the seasoning on when the meat is dry?
