There are many ways of cooking steak. The best one may differ according to the taste of each person. Using oven or cooker, adding different vegetables may result in different tastes. For example http://www.kolaylezzet.com/kolay-yemek-tarifleri/et-yemekleri/786-sal%C3%A7ali-antrikot-biftek.html
or

Only You will determine the "Best" way to cook a steak. There are lots of options. Pan seared, charcoal grilled, gas grilled, wood fired, reverse sear, and more. Seasonings, just about anything from plain salt and pepper to well, you name it. Start with whatever is most convenient for you and experiment.

First off the best tasting stake is the Rib-eye. It has a marble of fat that gives it the best tasting stake out there. Always cook it over wood fire with smoke chips, Hickory wood works very well. Being from Texas I like Mystique wood. Cook it over a very hot fire for 2 to 3 min. on each side, depending on if you like well done. I think the best is Med. Well done, with a little pink in the middle. Good Luck.

Aha! I see you are a Master Chef and Owner of MT Platter Catering.
So you know your stuff then about this question. Cool :)
About best tasting Steak, you say "buy Rib-eye". Ok, checked.
Question: does Bone in result in even better taste? I have found myself that Bone in is always tastier, but not everyone agrees with me. So what you say?

Bone in on any choice of meat is always to best choice. The bone marrow gives the meat great flavor. Let me know how it turns out. Good luck.

I prefer the pan - Cast-Iron Skillet is the best. Depends on which steak you need to cook, there are different methods how to make it perfect. For example, if you make Filet Mignon, about 2 inch thick, you can heat up the cast iron (with a ribbed bottom) on top of the stove until it smokes (no oil), place the steaks in the pan and leave it for 3 minutes. After 3 min. turn the steaks on the other side, and stick the pan with the steaks into the oven (preheated to 350F) and leave there for exactly 7 minutes for medium rare.
Some people will swear on grill only - it all depends on the cut, thickness of the meat and how many you have to make at the same time.
You will definitely make a great purchase to have Cast-Iron Skillet - and not just for the steaks. Hope it helps

No I am not chef-just use it as my nick name. Kidding. Of course I am. All about "the cooking the steak" depends on many factors: what kind of cut you have, how thick, what you have available (kitchen, back yard grill, combination). I wrote an example that comes out perfect any time and it's an option when grill is not available. You can google Cast Iron skillet. I like something like this, that leaves "grill like" marks. http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-L8SGP3-Pre-Seasoned-Cast-Iron-10-

Ok, thanks man.
Is there any special brand of Coal to buy which would give Steak specially nice chared flavor? I was told that Mesquite results in superior char taste. Is that your experience too?
