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 Honey-Orange Butter and Green Beans With Red Onions 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.
Yum! Is all I can say. I had to make these inside on my small grill, but they still turned out great, I loved the rub, it was great, will definitely try them again this summer on the big grill outside.
Fantastic steak recipe. I made as directed but used New York strip steaks. The rub is nice and peppery, which we love. The ancho chile and ground red pepper give it just the right amount of spice and heat, but not too much. My husband went back for seconds and even remarked today (a day later), "man, that was a great steak". I grilled mine on the outdoor grill and made sure to keep them a nice medium rare.
We were really hoping to like this as we love roadhouse steaks. We went and got 4 beautiful ribeyes and I measured and mixed the marinade as directed. The only thing I did different was to pan sear them rather than grill them as it was raining outside. We felt the cumin gave the steaks a funny taste but we did enjoy the heat of the spices. :)
This is fantastic! I omitted the salt. I used a Porterhouse steak which my husband carved out the filet for me and he took the New York and then I applied the rub. It's a bit cold just now so I pan sauteed the steaks. Thank you, Mom2Rose! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap 59.
