Not all the steaks are equal. Some are enjoyed with fatty marbling (rib eye), the others are delicious when lean (filet mignon). Some steaks have distinctive meaty flavor (strip steak), the others taste delicate (veal steak). And certain steaks have all the above characteristics (beef or veal t-bone).

Not all the steaks lovers are equal. Some meat eaters are seeking a strong meat flavor in their steaks, others prefer a mild taste. So, if you like a robust flavor (like my husband does), probably a rib eye or a strip steak are the best cuts for you. But what to do with a gorgeous piece of veal which I brought from a local butcher? To make a delicate (or bland, according to my husband) taste of the meat brighter I marinated it in aromatic olive oil. I think this simple method is one of the best ways to cook veal steaks. Mild meat absorbs garlic-and-herbs marinade creating a really pleasant combination.

Properly grilled aromatic veal t-bone accompanied with the basket vegetables made a wonderful dinner with Mediterranean flavors. Oh, almost forgot, a bottle of French rose was a nice finishing touch.
