Tasty Rubs

This week we’re featuring some recipes submitted from our Kansas City Steak Company customers!  Each of these rubs can be used on your favorite cut of steak.  A rub is generally made by combining dry ingredients:  spices, salts and herbs are the most common ones, although sometimes a rub will call for a liquid ingredient, such as lemon juice.

Rubs add flavor and a somewhat-crunchy crust to the steaks’ exterior; this is often the result of some type of sugar in the rub.  The sugar caramelizes (liquefies)  as it heats up then becomes brittle as it cools down — for that reason, its a good idea when grilling a rubbed steak to watch it carefully as it cooks to prevent a charred, gooey mess.   The longer a rub is allowed to penetrate the surface of the steak before cooking, the more pronounced the flavor will be.

Try these tasty rubs, and let us know what you think!
