Beef Tenderloin Steaks With Creole Spice Rub

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 8 mins

This recipe is from Cooking Light magazine. It is also good on chicken breasts, shrimp, or pork tenderloin. I make the rub and cover the steaks with it before I stick them in the freezer for a make-ahead meal. When they are thawed they are ready to go straight to the grill.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine rub ingredients. Rub evenly over steaks.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steaks to pan; cook 4 minutes on each or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.

I found this recipe for my husband. He used it as a rub for ribs. I think the spices blended very well together.

This was sooo good! The spices were delicious and the meat was perfectly tender. The only one in my family who didn't like it was my daughter, who just doesn't like a lot of spices. The rest of us loved it!
