Outback Steakhouse Rub

Oh heavens! This is gooooooooood! Jon Jackson gave the recipe to us and I have been using it very frequently. Try it out, you'll love it. I've made steak and grilled shrimp with it. I'm sure it would be good on whatever you do-veggies, chicken, etc. Ummmm mmm good.

Steak Rub
4 steaks (see below)
4 tsp salt (kosher if desired)
4 tsp paprika
2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2-1 tsp cayenne pepper (I'd go with 1/2 if you can't stand much spiciness)
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric

The best steaks to use are top sirloin, ribeye or filet steaks (or whatever suites your fancy- my favorite is NY strip or ribeye). I even rub and sear pork tenderloin and bake it in the oven in foil. So tasty! You don't want to get too lean or it will dry out. You need a little marbling in your steak. Rub the steaks how you like 'em. Derrel likes just a sprinkle, I like my drenched in spices. In a large frying pan, sear steaks on medium high and then place on grill. ONLY FLIP ONCE. Remember that steak still cooks a little bit after you take it off the grill. Grill to desired pinkness and then eat immediately! SOOOO yummy.

This rub helped me enjoy my first deer tenderloin! I haven't liked venison until now!
