This is a wonderful, all-purpose rub that can be used on steaks, chicken, shrimp or fish. This makes up about 3/4 cup, and can be stored in an air-tight container so you always have some on hand. This particular mix can be made from spices that most people have on hand already!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix spices, salt and peppers.
  2. Rub over steak, chicken or fish.
  3. Extra spice rub can be stored in an air-tight jar.

Loved this rub. We used it on steaks. Can't wait to use it on other things. Thanks for posting.

Great rub. I used it on a skirt steak that I broiled and it came out really good. I especially like the addition of coriander and the nice kick from the different peppers. Thank you.

My husband and I use this as our staple "GO TO" spice mix now! We have been experimenting with it for over 2 months and LOVE every combo we have used it in! Our favorite though is to add it to ground beef when we make burgers and they turn out better than any resturant we have available! That being said we dont have ANY good ones here! lol But it's nice to know we can use this as an alternative to paying $10 per person for a decent burger! We succesfully used it in meatloaf and on steaks too. My only word of causion... USE SPARINGLY! It's got a little bit of kick to it but it just WAY over powers (it's... potent :) if you use too much! I can smell it in the living room when my husband opens the container lol ALSO we use 1/2 paprika instead of the extra spiciness of chili powder to help keep it kid friendly :) ALL 3 of my children enjoy this too which makes it even better! lol
