Grilled Marinated Garlic and Chili Rubbed Strip Loin Steaks

Total Time
Prep 24 mins
Cook 12 mins

Plan ahead the steaks have to marinade overnight or up to 2 days. If you are making more than 4 steaks then double the chili rub. You can also broil these in the oven. These steaks are AMAZING!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl mash the garlic cloves with 1 teaspoon salt to make a paste, then add in chili powder, cumin, honey and Worcestershire sauce; mix to make a paste.
  2. Arrange the steaks on a plate or platter and rub both sides of the steaks with the chili paste.
  3. Transfer the steaks to a large resealable plastic bag.
  4. Refrigerate for 24 hours (or up to 2 days). Remove the steaks 1 hour and 15 minutes and let sit at room temperature (this is IMPORTANT, the steaks must stay out at room temperature before grilling!).
  5. Prepare the grill.
  6. Grill the steaks about 5-6 minutes on each side for medium-rare.

AMAZING! This paste is magic and I would have thought it was too much chili powder but it wasn't. It was wonderful. The steaks were so tender, like slicing through butter. I am thoroughly impressed. Thanks, Kittencal.
