My husband and I loved this rub! The steak holds the flavor well. I agree it was missing something so we added a little mesquite seasoning and cayenne pepper for a kick! Great! Read More

I absolutely loved this! I made a few changes. Instead of the chili seasoning I used Fajita seasoning. I also did not have ranch. So I eliminated it altogether. My husband loved it anyways and told me to keep the recipe as I made it. We grilled our steak on the bbq and It gave it a nice carmalized coating! Delicious!!! Read More

AMAZING! on our grilled London Broil!! I did coat the meat with a thin layer of veg. oil before the rub and then let it marinate for several hours. Will be making this again soon! Like tomorrow possibly lol. Read More

This was very good on our steaks tonight. I thought 1/2 cup brown sugar was a lot so I cut way back wish I had used more. Made the homemade "chili seasoning mix 1" and the "ranch dressing and dip mix" from this site. Everything else exactly as written. Next time up the brown sugar. Read More

This was really great tasting. I used a homemade chili seasoning (AR recipe) bottled ranch dressing so it made a paste and a combo of season all and beef fajita seasoning for the steak seasoning. This did not overpower the flavor of the beef either. Thanks it was very good. I subbed as close as I could get to what was called for. Read More

This worked out great for me. Only thing different I did was use homemade TACO seasoning mix and homemade ranch dressing mix. After I rubbed the rub on the meat I drizzled a little worchestershire sauce on the meat. Different but excellent. And it worked nicely for a quick steak rub. Quick is definetely a plus in this house! Spicy at the beginning with a sweet finish. A! Read More

This is a staple in my house. I dont use the ranch mix because my hubby doesnt like it and I add TONS of cayenne (we like it spicy)I always triple the recipe and store it in my cupboard. I have used it on chicken pork and steaks and even on shrimp skewers. I will rub it on and let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and then coat with the teriyaki sauce from this website and VOILA YUMMMY! Read More
