Dad's Steak Seasoning Notes

This recipe is a slight variation on what my Dad used, during the years I was growing up, to season steaks on the barbecue. I continue to use it for steaks and as a dry rub for beef roasts. It's not exotic, but oh-so-good.

This recipe brings out the flavor of, and helps to tenderize the meat, however it lacks seasoning and is rather bland. I suggest adding a favorite all purpose or steak seasoning such as Strawberry's grand champion bbq shake. Season steak liberally, add a teaspoon of liquid binder such as teriyaki, soy or fajita marinade to help dissolve seasoning into meat, cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours, set out and bring to room temp prior to grilling.

I have to admit, I read the ingredients and was a little skeptical but since I like trying new flavors I thought I'd try it. I have never made steak even close to this good. I always buy quality beef from a local farmer and this rub brings out the flavor like never before. It's great on burgers too. Thank you so much. I created a new account just so I could comment on this.
