Front Entry/Aluminum siding help

I will start out with the house being built in 1993 and having aluminum siding. We had an issue with the front entry way. Below the day the house was not flashed properly. We had to rip the siding half way up and repair the front ribbon joist and sill plate. We had stampcrete right up to the edge of the siding. Any suggestions on what I can do between the siding and the concrete step as seen in the pictures? I know I can caulk it and call it a day. Looking for any other ideas other than that.

That's the best thing to do for now. I suppose.
