    Southwest Cinnamon Steak Rub - Recipe

    Le Gourmet TV

    by Le Gourmet TV

    Just a little kick in this steak rub, and the cinnamon gives an exotic flavour burst that will make your day.

    1½ tsp (7 mL) cumin seed
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) brown sugar
    1½ tsp (7 mL) ground cinnamon
    1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
    1 tsp (5 mL) paprika
    ½ tsp (2 mL) garlic powder
    ½ tsp (2 mL) salt
    ¼ tsp (1 mL) red pepper flakes
    2 lbs (1 Kg) New York strip steaks (or any steak you like…)

    Lightly toast the cumin in a 'dry' frypan, and then grind in a mortar & pestle, or spice grinder.
    Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. (you can at this point keep the rub in an air tight container for a couple of weeks)
    Rub both sides of the steaks, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour and up to 24.
    Take them to the grill / bbq / fry pan / broiler and cook 'em the way you like 'em!
