I used no salt in the mix and it was perfect Loved spicy flavor
It was way too salty. I evened reduced the salt to 6 tsps. It was a little too spicy for me but my husband loved it.
Too salty for most. Too hot for manu. I was looking for something similar to Outback but this is not like any rub I have been served there. That being said I reduced the salt and heat and enjoyed it. My wife did not care for it.
I tried this recipe last night. In the words of my daughter, It was the bomb.com. By far the best steak I have ever cooked at home!
This is such a highly rated recipe, but if you read the reviews, so many people alter the recipe and then give it five stars. You can't do that! The rub is good, but I like many had to reduce the salt. My rating is based on the original recipe unaltered.
I've had this recipe printed out and laying in my to-make pile for several years. I wish I had come back and read the other reviews before using it. We love Outback steaks but this rub was waaaay too hot for us. Even DH, who loves hot salsa, needed to scrap the rub off the finished steak in order to eat it. I actually had to rinse mine off so it wasn't so hot. If you aren't a pepper lover, you might want to cut back on the cayenne. Or use the rub very sparingly. I cut the recipe in half since I only had two steaks and I only used half of what I prepared. We also didn't think it tasted anything like the Outback steaks. Heat lovers might enjoy this rub, but it wasn't for us. Sorry!
Spicy and salty. I liked the spice but my husband did not. Would reduce both ingredients if make again. Doesn't taste much like Outback, I will have to keep searching!
This was good, but waaayyy to much salt for us. Made it twice, once with all the salt the recipe called for, and once reducing it in half. We could not eat the meat it was soooo salty the first go round. Spices have good flavor mixture and I will try it again. Thanks for posting.
thats is a ok spice for steak ... not bad ... but i have seen better
Had a really good flavor but too much salt for us. I'll cut way back on the salt next time. Thanks
