My super secret (not really) spice / meat rub

On my weekends I’ve been inventing a machine that can distribute herbs and spices to any place at my dining table.

It’s not much, but it passes the thyme.


Just in time for Father’s day cookouts, I figured I would share the recipe I use for seasoning pretty much any kind of red meat. I use it to season steaks and burgers pretty much every time I grill them. It adds the perfect amount of interesting tingle of flavor combinations without overpowering the meat whatsoever. My family loves this and will not eat a steak without this seasoning / steak rub on it.

a little bit of spice goes a long way

What I like to do is take an old spice container and wash it out real well and use that to hold my spice mix. It saves me from having to create a batch every time, plus it makes shaking it on to the meat so much easier.

  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 8 teaspoons of paprika
  • 4 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Give this recipe a try next time you grill some red meat. It is really superb. Share and like this so I know you guys are out there and if you try this, let me know what you think in the comments.
