Giving A Little Something Extra

Homemade Steak-Rub From Your Kitchen

We’re featuring rub recipes for the next few days, submitted by Kansas City Steak
Company customers. Wouldn’t it be a thoughtful gesture to mix up one or more of
these steak rubs for the steak enthusiasts on your holiday list?  When you present
them with a box of Kansas City strip steaks or a Prime Rib Roast, include a decorative
jar filled with steak rub you made yourself.

Be sure to print out the recipe and affix it to a recipe card for their recipe box.  Punch
a hole in the corner of the card and tie it to the jar with a bit of festive ribbon or string. 
Then, each time they pull it out to make more they’ll remember how much you cared.
