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 was fantastic....we don't eat steak very often -- it is hard to find a couple good ones --this definitely made our steaks wonderful! Thank you!

I lost a recipe years ago for an all-purpose seasoning salt that did not include paprika or chili pepper and I think this is it! The minute I mixed up a batch and tasted it, I knew I had found it. I think it is the curry powder that makes the difference...not too much, just enough to really enhance the other spices. This is great on any meat and especially good added to potato salad, chicken salad and pasta salad. Thanks!

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.
