Sweet Autumn Spice Rub

3 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Allspice
1 Tbsp Cloves
1 Tbsp Ginger
1 Tbsp Salt
1 Tbsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Nutmeg

Brush a grill pan or cast iron skillet with canola oil until the cooking surface is well covered.  Turn on the heat.  Combine all ingredients in the Sweet Autumn Spice Rub in a large bowl.  Season one side of 4 Kansas City Strip Steaks with salt and season the other side with the Sweet Autumn Spice Rub by dredging the unseasoned side in the spice bowl until well covered. When the grill is hot and the oil is sizzling, place your steaks spice rub-side-down over the heat.  Cook for 4 minutes or until crusted and browned, then flip each steak over.  Cook an additional 4 minutes and remove from the heat.  Let them rest for five minutes and enjoy your delicious steaks on a crisp autumn day or anytime.
