I'm not rating this because I may have done something wrong. I used Paul Prudhomme's Blackened Steak Magic and was not happy at all. Maybe someone could suggest a better black steak seasoning. I also doubled the Tex-Mex butter thinking the amount given wouldn't be enough, but it was actually plenty. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.
