Instructions Checklist
  • Stir together the paprika, salt, sugar, chili powder, chipotle powder, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin in a small bowl until blended. Rub the seasoning mix all over the flat iron steaks, then wrap them tightly with plastic wrap. Marinate in the refrigerator 2 to 8 hours (the longer the better).

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.

  • Cook the steaks on the preheated grill until cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. Allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes in a warm location before slicing.

It is really a shame that people who simply did not care for the cut of beef suggested by the person who submitted this recipe gave this a low rating because the rub itself is fantastic. The blend of the brown sugar and the 3 pepper flavors is phenominal. If you do not care for flank steak or flat iron...just use a different cut. Read More

I created this recipe and just wanted to offer a different spin on it. Replace the brown sugar with peach jello powder sounds weird but gives a nice back flavor to it. Read More

Excellent & easy. This tastes as good as any pricey restaurant steak. Thanks for the great recipe. Grilling tip: leave the meat out of the fridge for about 30 min before grilling. It's easier to get the level of doneness you want this way. Read More

I've never reviewed a recipe on here before but this recipe definitely warrants a review. I cut the salt in half and used white pepper instead of reg. pepper for more kick. I made two types of steaks: one with this rub and one with a beer marinade. Would you believe the the ones with the dry rub were more tender? Excellent rub with an excellent kick! I used a charcoal grill with hickory chips. Definitely the way to go! Read More

Great simple southwestern taste. I didn't have chilpotle pepper or onion powder. I used minced onion instead. Came out great. We used the rub also on chicken breast tenders and bbq. My family really enjoyed both the steak and chicken Read More

Excellent! When I cook one of my favorite things to do is to try things that I've never thought of but seem just crazy enough to work. Doesn't always pan out but I took Danny Jaye's tip on using peach Jello powder - and it's awesome!! Cooked these 5 minutes per side and the rub was enough to cover 3lbs. Great recipe thanks!!

Excellent & easy! I put this rub on a flank steak the night before I served it and it gave the a great spicy flavor without being overpowering. I look forward to trying this rub on other cuts of beef as well as on some chicken. Read More
