Chef Tip: You can opt for a steak that maintains consistent thickness carrying some intramuscular fat inside it. It would help you get an additional flavor and feel juicy. You can baste the steaks in herbs and butter during the final stages of cooking.

To the salt, you can also use other seasonings like chopped herbs, including sage, rosemary, or thyme, to make it a flavourful salt for your steak.
