Very good. I didn't have turmeric so I substituted curry. I used this on our steak and also on fries to make some very good seasoned fries. Thank you!

This was very good, but I've never had a steak at Outback that tasted like this. Two things, way too much salt for our tasted and a little less pepper spices. This could have been my fault for using heaping teaspoons instead of level ones. Definately a different rub, but a very good one! Thanks for posting!!

I'm sold. I absolutely love this recipe. My whole family thinks this is the way steaks should taste! Only Shasha's rub for my steaks from now on!

I have been using Ted's Montana Grill seasoning mix for years and had no desire to change. It is amazing! I tried this but w/ less salt and now I can say this is also amazing. I made a double batch and now both are in my cabinet. I will alternate w/ any beef recipe and not miss a beat. You can substitute Accent for salt ( I do this all the time). It has 1/3 less sodium and really perks up the flavor for just about anything.

The only smell and flavor was pepper. I triple checked all the ingredients and measurements as I added them and holy cow. I couldn't even eat it because it was so peppery. I may try this recipe again with 1/2 tsp pepper but was pretty disappointed with this one. I LOVE Outback Steakhouse and even drive 3 hours to the closest one for a steak. This however tasted NOTHING like their steak in my opinion.

Okay, I know people sometimes have a problem when people rate a recipe but don't follow it exactly. I couldn't help myself on this one! I didn't have coriander or tumeric. I read what the flavors are similar to by clicking on the spice. So I substituted them both one with 1/2 tsp lemon pepper and the other with 1/2 tsp ground ginger. I also left out the cayenne as I am not a big fan of spicy food. This along with marinade #66648 by luuvbunny is awesome! I have NEVER made a steak I really liked before this! DH said whatever you did please keep the recipe. Then posted a pic to facebok. Thanks for making me look like a star! Definetely make extra rub you'll need it! (I only used 3 tsp of salt, and it was just right, maybe even a little salty for some people's taste, but perfect for us)

My husband loves this on steak and I have been using the recipe for about 3 years. If the meat I am using is cheaper I use 1/2 of the mix a can of coke to marinate overnight and then add the remainder of the seasoning directly to both sides of the steak right before cooking. It can turn a very tough piece of meat tender and the seasoning creates great juice while cooking that can be added over the steak once it's done.

This was pretty darn good! I had to substitute basil for the coriander, and curry powder for the turmeric (we were out of both), I cut down the cayenne by half, as well as the salt. The seasonings were delicious, and the only drawback was that we all felt like we had been pepper-sprayed when the plates hit the table - not a major drawback, and in fact quite funny to watch :) We will definitely use this again. Thanks!

This was outstanding! This had a really nice balance of flavors. I was a little worried about the proportion of salt but it ended up tasting great. I like things spicy so the cayenne pepper is a must. We used rib eye steaks and grilled them to medium-rare. The rub was super easy and made for an amazing meal paired with potato gratin.
