First of all you need to clean the steaks of any fat left.

then you make some cuts in diamond shape in both sides of the Steak. ¡Careful, dont cut to deep!.

Put the pepper mix on both sides of each steak.

Then heat up a pan. Sprinkle some salt in it.

Once the pan is nicely heated, put the Steaks on it. Aproximately after 40 seconds, turn them on the other side. Do that 2 or 3 times until they're brown.

Why do you use garlic powder?

L
As opposed to actual garlic cloves? Or garlic salt? I use garlic powder because I don't like salty foods (I'm incredibly sensitive to salt's flavor), and garlic cloves, even when minced fine, often overpower all other tastes. But I am curious about Mr. Sushi's reasoning too.
It's a milder flavour then, that would explain it.

You both are right. But in addition, let me tell you that this is easy cooking, so the least work you have to do the better (peeling and mincing onions/garlic is time expensive). Of course there is another reason too: with garlic and onion powder (it is ussually pretty dry) when you pour the whitewine/butter on it, it will absorb it, creating little pieces of 3 or 4 times its original size. Those are very tasty to eat with the steak.

That's a tastily-detailed explanation, thanks.

Hm, never knew about the last part - I rarely cook with any alcohol other than Chianti, Jack Daniels, or rum (fantastic tastes, I know). I do have to agree about the work, though - I am terrible at prepping garlic cloves...
