This is my favourite seasoning for steak. It combines paprika, cayenne, coriander and turmeric but it doesn't overwhelm the steak.
We've tried this steak rub three times now, and tonight was the best.... the first couple of times I used the full amount of salt, and tonight I cut both the salt and turmeric in half. Be sure to apply the rub just before grilling. If you leave it on too long, the flavor gets too strong, and the meat loses it's juice. Thanks, Rocky... the best steak we've had all year! - 30 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This steak rub Rocks! I cut the recipe in half for two good sized T-bones and it was perfect. I did use half the amont of salt though. It had just the right amount of spice and we melted a little butter over top of them when they came off the grill. I don't think any steakhouse could have compared. This is a definite keeper - these went great with grilled onions and Leslie's Saltly Grilled Potatoes from this site. Thanks Rocky. - 02 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I looked at the ingredients and tried to imagine what this would taste like…I had no idea. It just looked interesting. After pulling the steak off the grill, letting it sit for five minutes and tasting it all I can say is, this is absolutely wonderful, a fantastic complement to steak on the grill. The rub enhanced that beef flavor a man looks for without being overpowering. I would make one adjustment. As some reviewers who preceded me indicated, I would cut back on the salt. Beyond that, this is something I will use again, and often. Special note: for those of you who love strip steaks and your significant other likes tenderloin, using a porterhouse and cutting the tenderloin off, cooking it separately (as shown in my photo), is an easy way to satisfy different tastes and different cooking temperatures. - 25 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
