How to Grill A Steak with Your Own Spice Rub



1 1/2 Pounds of top round steak — or the steak you prefer

To make your own spice rub:

1 Teaspoons salt

1 Teaspoon sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Oregano

1 Teaspoon onion powder (not onion salt)

1 Teaspoon black pepper

1 Teaspoon cumin

1 Teaspoon paprika

2 Cloves garlic

1 Tablespoon butter


Make your steak rub:

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Taste and adjust spices to your taste. Crush or finely mince the garlic cloves into the dry spice mix. Add butter. Warm bowl of ingredients in microwave or on stove. Rub into steak, pork and even chicken. (Make sure to watch my how to grill a steak to see how best to use this steak spice rub.

Grill the steak:

Start your grill according to your grill manufacturer’s instructions. Preheat the grill to 600 degrees. Coat the steak in your spice rub. Place the steak on the grill. If it haves a shield over the flames, position it there so the flames will not directly burn the steak.

Close the grill cover and grill for five minutes. Open the cover and flip the steak. Close the cover for another five minutes. Open the cover and flip the steak. Close for five minutes. Open the cover. Check the steak with your meat thermometer to see if it is cooked through to your satisfaction — rare, medium rare or well done.

Another way to tell if the steak is done is to check the juices. As a general rule: If the juices are running red, the stake is more toward the rare end. Pinkish and it’s medium. Clear it’s well done. If you’re unsure, cut a piece from the steak and see what’s going on inside, and add additional grilling time if needed. The amount of time you have to cook the steak will depend on its thickness.

When the steak is grilled to your satisfaction, remove it from the grill and place it on a clean plate.
