Homemade Steak Rub: A Gift for Dad

Remember when you used to make an ashtray out of popsicle sticks for dear old Dad for Father’s Day?

Not such a great idea.

Well, you can still make him something homemade – but this time, he’ll REALLY enjoy it.

Try making him a homemade steak rub (along with a really good cut of meat).

Here’s a fantabulous recipe that will make Dad very, very happy this Sunday. It’s got garlic powder, red chili flakes and lots of other good stuff to make a tasty and memorable steak.

Think of the smiles and tears and accolades for years to come! This will be a Father’s Day to remember. And you won’t have to wait in line at Denny’s.

Seriously, THIS homemade gift will be a Father’s Day home run!

Steak Chili: You Need This

You know how your mom always told you to clean your plate?

I don’t think it’s gonna be a problem with this one.

This steak chili has a distinct stick-to-your-ribs quality that is extra appealing at this time of year. I know I’m always trying to find ways to stay warm.

The smoked paprika and chili powder give it the kick we all want, plus a little something more.

Make a huge batch of this to share and to freeze for later. I always like it when I have yumminess on hand on those days when I just don’t have enough time to make something spectacular. And with two busy kids, well, let’s just say that happens a lot.
