Savory Herb and Spice Rubs for Steaks



Mix all ingredients.  Rub mixture on all sides of meat, just before grilling or rub ahead of time and place in refrigerator. Be sure to let steaks sit out of refrigerator for about 30 minutes to have the steaks at room temp before grilling.  For 1.5 to 2 lbs of meat (about 2 steaks).  Grill on high heat, for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side (med. rare) depending on thickness, or to preferred doneness.
