Filet Mignon Rub Recipe

Filet Mignon

Ever wonder how to season a steak?

Honestly, whatever flavors YOU like are the ones you should use.

But sometimes we need some guidance. That’s when I turn to recipes. When they’ve been created by a chef I know they’re gonna be good.

I’m getting in the spirit of National Filet Mignon Day (all month long) and making sure we eat our fair share of filets.

Here is a filet rub recipe I like to use:

Spice Rubbed Filet Mignon

Ingredients:
4 (5 oz.) Filet Mignons

For the Spice
1 tbsp. sweet paprika
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. chipotle chile powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. cocoa powder

For the Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. yellow mustard
1 cup tomato sauce

Directions: Combine all of the spice ingredients in a mortar and pestle or in a spice grinder and mix until evenly combined. Rub the mixture evenly into all sides of the filet and let rest for at least a half of an hour. In a heavy bottomed pan over high heat, sear the filets until done, about four minutes per side for medium. Add the brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and tomato sauce and reduce until thickened.

Servings: 4

It’s spicy and delicious and especially created for a filet mignon.

Delicious! Wanna try it?

Dr. BBQ’s Simple Steak Rub

Simple Steak Rub

If you know how to season a steak, it makes all the difference in the world.

First, choose a steak of great quality, then comes the seasoning.

Steaks always taste better, in my opinion, when they are rubbed with a little love.

And of all the great steak recipes out there, a good rub is absolutely key.

This “Dr. BBQ’s Simple Steak Rub” below is just that – simple.

It brings out and enhances the natural flavor of your steak. It’s like creating Steak 2.0!

Ray Lampe (a.k.a. “Dr. BBQ”), who created this recipe, was inducted into the BBQ Hall of Fame in 2014. He has appeared on the Food Network, Travel Channel and Fox Sports Network cooking BBQ competitively.

In short, he knows his stuff.

Wanna take your steaks to the next level? Dr. BBQ’s Simple Steak Rub is the way to go.

Try this recipe and see for yourself!

Ingredients
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp coarse black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp granulated onion
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp sugar

Directions: Defrost the steaks overnight in the refrigerator. Take the steaks out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before you plan to cook. Prepare the grill to cook hot and direct. In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, chili powder, granulated garlic and onion, coriander, and sugar. Mix well. Season the steaks liberally with the rub on both sides. You may not use the whole batch of rub. Put it in an airtight container and store it in a cool dry place until next time. Place the steaks on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes until well browned. Flip the steaks and cook another 3-5 minutes until the steaks reach an internal temp of 125f for medium rare. Transfer to a platter and rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Makes four man size servings

Championship Brisket Rub Recipes

Championship Brisket

Beautiful weather gives me the energy to experiment with new recipes and try new things.

Those sunny skies make me want to share a good old fashioned Kansas City brisket with friends and neighbors. This Championship Brisket is the perfect canvas on which to bring out my artistic flair.

When I buy brisket I intend to personalize it with something like a traditional Kansas City dry rub (like this delicious Kansas City Rub recipe) or maybe even something spicy like this recipe for Barbeque Rub that includes cayenne pepper and chili powder.

While the Kansas City Rub features dry mustard and ground cumin, there’s a special rub I really adore called Rubbed the Right Way. It calls for brown sugar (delish!), basil, oregano and lots of other great seasonings. It’s a fantastic combo of flavors that really brings out the natural flavor of the brisket.
