Today I'm gonna show you how to make steak rub. There's lots of occasions for an all purpose rub like our all American spice rub. There's also occasions for something unique and special that really goes well with particular kind of meat. And today we're talking steak.

Who doesn't love a nice steak out on the grill? This is a very simple rub. It's black pepper coarse ground, butcher ground, some kosher salt, granulated garlic, crushed ground mustard seed, oregano, basil, cumin, some coriander, some crushed red pepper flakes, finally get a nice little fresh flavor a little lemon peel.

I like to mix this in a mason jar. Just put the lid on it. And it give you a vessel that you can store it in, but you can also shake it up, mix it up really well to get all those spices and flavors, incorporated. And then you're ready to stick this on your shelf. Or if you're gonna be making steaks for dinner tonight you're ready to go.

Simple, easy, adds a really delicious flavor to any steak from a t-bone, to a rib eye, to a porter house, to a filet mignon. Give it a try. I guarantee you you're gonna like the way it tastes. I guarantee you so will your friends and family.
