When you have a good steak, all you really need is salt and pepper. However, we can’t always have amazing steak lying around. So sometimes you need to season your steak to improve on its natural flavor. So I have been fiddling around with different seasonings and have found a great combinations of spices. The key to this rub is the smoked paprika. It adds a nice smoky layer to the steak. In addition a little cayenne adds just a bit of heat.
Rex’s Steak Rub
- 1 tbs smoked paprika
- 1 tbs crushed black pepper
- 1 tbs kosher salt
- 1/2 tbs granulated garlic
- 1/2 tbs granulated onion
- 1/2 tbs crushed coriander
- 1/2 tbs dill
- 1/2 tbs crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tsp thyme
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Mix all of the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
I find that an old spice container works great as a storage container.
To use, sprinkle your steaks with the seasoning and grill to perfection.
I use this recipe all of the time. I find that it produces a great steak.
