  1. 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).
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  3. 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.

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.

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 easi...

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 o...

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 fa...

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 usi...

Yum! Loved it. I seared and broiled the steak as I can't figure out my barbeque :) Still delicious!

Wow, delicious and easy. I tenderized the steaks after I'd applied the rub and they were phenominal!

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 ...
