Here we go! You are going to LOVE my Best Ever Steak Rub! It’s certified for summer…. well not really, but it’s really good!
Best Ever Steak Rub
I’m Kim from Today’s Creative Life, and I’m so excited to be back for Mique’s Funner in the Summer event!
I love summer, and after the year I’ve had, I’m all about keeping things simple, easy and creative for a relaxing summer.
Summer means a lot of grilling at our house, so I make sure to whip up a few batches of my homemade Best Ever Steak Rub and my Caribbean Rub. I like to mix flavors that I know my family will enjoy and by making my own rubs, I know exactly what’s in them. I don’t have to worry about added MSG or other fillers.
Just because it says Steak Rub, it doesn’t mean you can’t also use it on other cuts of meat. I add it to my homemade hamburger mixture before making patties and boy is it tasty! The Caribbean Rub (pictured above) has a little kick to it and is so good on chicken and shrimp. My husband has also used it on steak and says it’s delicious! Both the Steak Rub and the Caribbean Rub come with it’s own free printable label, which makes it a great diy gift idea for Father’s day or the holidays.
How to Make Best Ever Steak Rub
Making your own rubs or seasoning mixtures isn’t difficult at all! In fact, you’ll feel like your back in science class.
You’ll want to gather:
- a small bowl – I measure my spices over a bowl to catch any that may spill over.
- measuring spoons
- one small zip lock baggy
- air tight container
Gather all your spices and set them out on the counter. This recipe uses all dried spices.
- Paprika – 2 tablespoons
- Minced or chopped onion – 2 tablespoons
- Minced Garlic – 2 tablespoons
- Course salt – 2 tablespoons
- Fresh ground black pepper – 1½ tablespoons
- Dill Weed – 1½ tablespoons
- Ground coriander – 1 tablespoon
- Cayenne Pepper – 1½ teaspoons
Measure each spice out and place into the zip lock baggy. Seal the bag and gently mix to blend the spices. Pour into an airtight container to store in your cupboard.
When you know you’re going to be grilling, brush your cut of meat with oil before adding the rub to the top a few hours before. But heck…. if it was a last minute decision to grill up a steak, it will still be good! Truth be told, I’m always adding at the last minute and it’s always delicious.
Print your free Steak Rub Labels and either stick to the lid with a dab of glue or use it as a tag and tie it around the jar.
I wasn’t sure which one I would like better, so I printed a few on the brown kraft paper and a few on white cardstock. I’m still not sure which one I like better. They’re both cute! The adorable cow image was found at The Graphics Fairy.
There ya go! Time to mix up a batch for yourself. Enjoy!
