"A simple blend of spices combines to make a wonderful rub for steak. Can be used on any steak but it's best on flat iron or flank steak." — Danny Jaye

flat iron steaks
It is really a shame that people who simply did not care for the cut of beef suggested by the person who submitted this recipe gave this a low rating because the rub itself is fantastic. The blend of the brown sugar and the 3 pepper flavors is phenominal. If you do not care for flank steak or flat iron...just use a different cut.
Tasted like taco seasoning on steak.
I created this recipe and just wanted to offer a different spin on it. Replace the brown sugar with peach jello powder, sounds weird but gives a nice back flavor to it.
Excellent & easy. This tastes as good as any pricey restaurant steak. Thanks for the great recipe. Grilling tip: leave the meat out of the fridge for about 30 min before grilling. It's easier to get the level of doneness you want this way.
I've never reviewed a recipe on here before, but this recipe definitely warrants a review. I cut the salt in half and used white pepper instead of reg. pepper for more kick. I made two types of steaks: one with this rub, and one with a beer marinade. Would you believe the the ones with the dry rub were more tender? Excellent rub with an excellent kick! I used a charcoal grill with hickory chips. Definitely the way to go!
Great, simple, southwestern taste. I didn't have chilpotle pepper or onion powder. I used minced onion instead. Came out great. We used the rub also on chicken breast tenders and bbq. My family really enjoyed both the steak and chicken
Excellent! When I cook, one of my favorite things to do is to try things that I've never thought of but seem just crazy enough to work. Doesn't always pan out, but I took Danny Jaye's tip on using peach Jello powder - and it's awesome!! Cooked these 5 minutes per side, and the rub was enough to cover 3lbs. Great recipe, thanks!!
Yum! Loved it. I seared and broiled the steak as I can't figure out my barbeque :) Still delicious!
