This rub works great with thick, tender and juicy steak cuts from the top sirloin, rib or strip loin. The resulting sweet, savoury and charred flavours bring out the best in your beef and work beautifully with bold red wines and dark craft beers like black lagers, porters and stouts - a perfect pairing to summer evenings at home with family and friends.
Combine the dry ingredients and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
To use: rub 2 tbsp. mixture all over your favourite 6 to 8 oz. (170 to 226 g) steak.
Grill over medium-high heat for 10 to 12 minutes, turning at least twice for medium-rare doneness 145°F (63°C). Cover steaks loosely with foil and let steaks rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
