Spicy Steak Rub Seasoning


For today, I’m sharing with you our very favorite steak rub.  We used to eat steaks out at restaurants, but this rub is so good, I rarely even want a restaurant steak anymore.  This is far better than some of the upscale steaks we’ve had out.  It’s our absolute favorite!  I got this from a friend years ago, and we’ve made it ever since!

It will kick you in the hiney!

My kids, who do not like spicy foods.  For that reason, I use just a small sprinkle of this rub for their steaks.
