Creole Rub for Beef

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Found this idea in a flyer produced by the Beef Council for restaurant and catering chefs. (Thus the large volume of rub generated.) Have not tried this one yet but it should work well on either steaks or roasts. I'm also guessing a couple tablespoons mixed into ground beef would make a fantastic burger.

Wow! This makes a LOT of seasoning! It's quick and easy to make. However, I found it worked better with ground beef to make burgers with rather than to use on steaks. (It's a little too intense for steak). Otherwise, I recommend this. I used regular mustard since I did not have creole mustard. It is very spicy and has a lot of heat - which is good for people like me who like hot and spice - but it is not for the faint of tastebuds. Thanks for sharing this Toni!
