Cajun Spice Rub July 28, 2008

I love steaks with rubs.  This one works well with chicken or flank steak.  You can either make the entire recipe and have tons of leftovers to store or cut the recipe down to suit your needs.  The recipe makes 1 cup or about enough to cover 16 chicken breasts.

1/2 cup sweet paprika

2 Tbs. kosher salt

2 Tbs. garlic powder

1 Tbs. dried thyme

2 tsp. ground celery seed

2 tsp. ground black pepper

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

Store rub in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 months.


1.  Bring steaks to cool room temperature for even cooking.

2.  Rub steaks in mixture covering all sides.

3.  Grill to medium doneness or to your liking.

    i thought that this recipe would go better with pork steak and grilling sounds ok but, it would be even better if you added broiling insted of grilling see what im getting to here.
