Who doesn’t love a tender, perfectly cooked steak? Usually, you have to go out to eat to get that perfect, mouth-watering flavor that is the signature of a quality steak. But what if there’s another way? Enjoy the delicious taste of steak in the comfort of your own home with Champion Steak Rub. When paired with a good cut of meat, this rub will turn your steak into the steak of your dreams!
What’s in It?
Hand-blended from top quality salt, brown sugar, chili powder, garlic, cumin, black pepper, yellow mustard, paprika, thyme, and red pepper flakes, Champion Steak Rub is a symphony of ingredients that creates a subtle, sweet flavor with just a little bit of heat.
Choosing Your Steak
The key to having the most delicious steak is to pick the best cut. A few good options are rib eye, flatiron, and T-bone. While tougher cuts can seem daunting, you can choose flank, hanger, or skirt steak as well, so long as you thinly slice the grain prior to serving. Porterhouse is one of the top choices in that it is made of a New York Strip, a slender T-shaped bone, and a filet mignon.
If you want to make the most out of your steak, then you’ll want to select a quality grade of beef. USDA prime is the top-rated grade, but since it only accounts for 2% of US beef production, choosing choice grade beef instead is still a very good, and more affordable, option.
How to Use It
When it comes to cooking the perfect steak, make sure your cooking surface is hot, clean, and well oiled with vegetable oil before using. If you try cooking on an unclean surface that has not been oiled, your meat is more likely to stick and will lack the grill marks that define a well-cooked steak.
To use Champion Steak Rub, it is recommended that you use 1 tablespoon of rub per pound of steak. Sprinkle the rub onto your steak, and then pat it into the meat by hand, making sure to coat each side. After the steak has been evenly coated, put it in a zip-lock bag and refrigerate for a minimum of 2-4 hours prior to cooking. When you are ready to cook the steak, take it out of the refrigerator and let it sit approximately 30 minutes beforehand.
It might come as a surprise that your steak will need to be re-seasoned as it cooks. This is a key step that many inexperienced cooks leave out of the cooking process. Because the grill rods remove some of the seasonings from the meat as it cooks, continue to add more Champion Steak Rub to both sides of your steak as you flip it.
