I made this for hubby using porterhouse steaks/sirloin steaks and myself using chicken breast (I don't eat red meat) and we both enjoyed it. I found the spice was perfect for my taste. I like the fact it was so simple to put together. I cooked it on our BBQ and served with a crispy green salad. Thank you Mom2Rose for posting your recipe.
I reduced the recipe to serve 2 and used sirloin. The rub has plenty of heat and the meat was well seasoned. The steaks were grilled on the outdoor grill. This made a delicious dinner served with baked sweet potatoes which were topped with Recipe #397144 and Recipe #371412 was served on the side. Made for Aussie Swap.
I loved this steak rub. This was sooooooo loaded with flavor. The little kick of heat from the chile powder and the red and black peppers were a nice bonus. I used a nice strip steak and my steak turned out tender, juicy and full of flavor. Thanks for another keeper. Made for August, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap.
