Copycat Texas Roadhouse Steak Rub

This was the rub we used on our steaks for the 4th.  Very good, but I will sprinkle lightly next time.

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Steak Rub

1.5 tablespoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cornstarch
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients.

Generously cover each side of the steak with the seasoning and let it rest for about 40 minutes. This allows the salt to penetrate through the surface  and actually helps break down the muscle fibers, which results in a more tender meat. During this time, the liquid that initially surfaced has time to reabsorb, which makes the meat juicer.

Once the grill is nice and hot, place the steak(s) on and cook for 4-5 minutes, until it’s browned and slightly charred. Flip it over and cook for the following additional time:

-5 minutes: Medium Rare
-7 minutes: Medium
-10 minutes: Medium- Well
This rub is GREAT on burgers as well!
