Lone Star Steak Rub

This American rub recipe comes out of Steven Raichlen’s, Barbecue Bible Sauces, Rubs, and Marinades, Bastes, Butters, and Glazes.  We really enjoy it sprinkled on our burgers and pork chops.  Naturally, it rocks on steaks, too.  I keep a jar of handy in the spice cabinet; it keeps well for several months.  Well, if you […]
