I don't know about you, but as soon as the weather turns sunny, I want to be grilling pretty much every meal outside! And with Father's Day coming up soon, I wanted to prepare something for my husband for the grill that he would absolutely love – and decided on some steak!
But I didn't want to drown the steak in a sauce, so decided to make a dry rub for it. Now, my husband doesn't really like spicy food, but he DOES like the heat from mustard. I've seen mustard rubs before – they're often for pork or chicken but there's no reason why they couldn't work with steak. Also, they nearly always include sugar in the rub, which I decided to omit to make it lower in carbs.
How to Make a Mustard Dry Rub
Combine dry mustard powder (Colman's is my favorite!), onion powder, dried oregano, ground cumin, garlic powder, and paprika together.
Add some salt and pepper.
Store at room temperature until required.
When ready to cook, press the rub onto both sides of the steak (or chicken or pork!). Shown below are two gorgeous New York Strip cuts.
Grill until cooked to your liking (use a grill pan if you don't have access to an outdoor grill), let rest for 5 minutes, then serve.
The mustard dry rub was the perfect seasoning – my husband loved it! Some low carb grilled vegetables also went really well with the steak.
- Combine all the ingredients together.
- Store at room temperature until required.
- When ready too cook, press a teaspoon of the rub onto both sides of whichever meat you are using (eg steaks, pork chops, chicken breasts), then cook as desired.
