Recipe Day: Seasoned Steaks

I normally prefer steaks with as little interference as possible -- a simple rare cut with a bit of salt, pepper, and if I'm feeling particularly extravagant, brown sugar. However, this more complex rub went over well at the most recent barbeque.

Statistics

  • Serves 3 - 4 people
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: up to 16 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Steps

  • Mix all ingredients except brown sugar in a bowl. Add brown sugar last and make sure to smooth out any clumps resulting from living on the humid East Coast.
  • Lightly rub your steaks with olive oil and pat with paper towels if you overdo it. Rub the seasoning all over the steaks. This recipe makes enough seasoning for 3 - 4 steaks.
  • If you already have magic grill hands, do whatever you normally do to grill steaks. If not, this simple pattern is a good place to start and customize to your liking:
    • Warm up steaks at room temperature for 10 minutes. Heat grill to highest heat.
    • Sear each side of the steak for 1.5 minutes on highest heat (total 3 minutes). Reduce heat to medium-high.
    • Cook steaks for 5 minutes per side for rare, 6.5 minutes per side for medium rare, and 8 minutes per side for medium.
  • Let stand for about 10 minutes and serve with a Belgian ale.
