We are right in the middle of the grilling season and I wanted to share with you our new favorite dry rub. It is tasty on all steak cuts, the citrus in this recipe is a nice refreshing touch. I have found that many dry rubs included sugar or brown sugar. Stay away from that sweetness! Sugar burns and you are left with a charred taste on the steak. The rub doesn’t need any sugar. The flavor of the beef and the spices are the perfect match.
- zest of 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Few things to remember when cooking beef:
- Beef should be room temperature. Take the beef out of the fridge 30 minutes prior to cooking and rub that tasty seasoning mix on the meat.
- Let the meat rest after cooking. Don’t cut in to the beef right away.
