I have some frozen steaks I want to cook rather quickly. I want to follow this method: this question but I am not sure how to season it. How do I apply seasoning to a steak without defrosting it?
I'm not sure how much it matters, other than the fact that it is difficult for seasoning to stick to a frozen steak. I would season with salt and pepper (or whatever spice blend you prefer) after the sear and before the oven step...but you could also season at the end of the cook. If it is a good steak, keep the seasoning simple.
The technique to get the seasoning to stick if frozen solid is one of the following two:
1) preferred...let it thaw enough for the outer layer to be wet rather than solid ice. This will also improve cooking as well.
2) if you can't do #1, the spread olive oil or other oil of your choice all over the meat. The seasoning will stick to that.
