A great quick rub for steaks

By Mike Thayer

If you're looking for something a little different to do to your steaks before putting them on the grill, this is a rub you'll want to try.  It gives the meat a nice little crust and enhances all that savory flavor.


  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt


Combine all ingredients and rub on the steaks at least four hours before grilling, place meat in a zip lock bag and refrigerate.  Good for about four 12 ounce steaks.
