  • New York Strip
  • Sirloin Steak

We do not recommend using on tender steaks such as filet mignon. You want the flavors of the filet mignon to come through.

How Much Rub to Use:

The amount rub it all depends on your preference. We start with about 2 tablespoons per pound when sprinkling it on our steak. You can easily add more or less depending on your preference.

It is recommended that you apply the seasoning evenly over the meat and no dry spots. The results will be flavorful steaks the whole family will enjoy.

How to Use a Rub on Steak:

Before preparing to use this steak rub, you need to first prepare your steaks. We recommend pat dry your steak with paper towels so that the seasoning sticks. Drying time takes about 5 minutes.

Spread the seasoning on side of the steak. Then flip the steak and spread it on the other side. We recommend using your fingers to press the seasoning into the steak.

You can go ahead and cook the steak or allow it to rest for about 30 minutes. This allows the seasoning blend to marinate into the steak for the best flavor. You can even let it set overnight to really enhance the flavor.

After marinating the steak, then your are ready to grill or cook on the stove top. The results are a delicious flavored steak recipe.

This recipe is enough steak seasoning for 6-8 steaks depending on the size of your steaks.
