Use the options below to toggle between cups and grams (if relevant)
- 4 tbsp salt
- 2 1/2 tbsp black pepper
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 1/2 tbsp beef bouillon (see note 1)
- 2 1/2 tbsp dried onion flakes
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
Give the jar a good shake (hold the lid on!)
Rub 1-2 tsp of steak rub onto each steak. Really rub it in. You want to massage the steak so the whole steak is lightly covered in the rub.
Cover and place your steak in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Remove your steak from the fridge 20 minutes before you want to cook it.
Pat your steak dry and wipe off any loose rub.
Add a splash of oil to each steak and rub it all over.
Cook your steak to your individual preference.
Makes about 1 cups worth. (Enough for 20+ steaks)
- If you can buy beef bouillon powder loose, then you can add it o the rub when you mix everything up. If you don't have this as an option you can buy bouillon cubes and crumble them up. Or leave the beef bouillon out of the mixture completely and then when you want to use the rub, measure out your steak rub and add one cube per two steaks.
This keeps for months in an airtight jar. If you live in very humid conditions you might want to make up a smaller amount so that your rub doesn't clump up.
