A different look at steak

It's beautiful out, and I plan on hanging on my back porch, watching the games, and grilling. The wife wants steak, but I'm not in the mood for plain steak. Anyone have any ideas for good marinades, rubs, sauces, pairing, etc to spice it up.

Read this article about how to salt a steak.

And I also vote for chimichurri. Which is also excellent on grilled halibut.
For side..maybe skip the potato and go with baked polenta fries.
and a side salad.

Cook the steak however you wish. High heat grilling is my favorite.
Salt and fresh pepper is all you need.
What is the best side ?
A superb full bodied red !
(2 bottles are better than 1)
