Tonight's dinner mission is super simple and inexpensive to make - spice rubbed steaks. Our refrigerator's compressor went out so I come up with a quick meal that didn't require a lot of prep work for dinner as I'm going to have to restock the fridge soon. So the next few days I will be preparing meals that don't require a lot of ingredients just to make my life a little more easy. I knew I had sweet potatoes and zucchini on hand so I thought sirloin steaks would be quick and not too much to purchase since I had everything else already. I flipped through my America's Most Wanted Recipe book and found a copy cat "Outback Steak Seasoning" recipe which sounded great.
Here's what you'll need
Spice Rubbed Steaks
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 garlic powder
1/2 onion powder
2 large sirloin steaks (cut in 2)
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Generously spread seasoning to both sides of each steak.
Grill or pan fry steaks to desired temperature. These are cooked medium/medium-well and were grilled for about 6 to 7 minutes on each side. Serve with your favorite sides.
This steak rub makes these steaks good enough to eat without steak sauce; however, I don't think they tasted much like Outback Steaks. They were very good; however, I have tried other copy cat recipes that tasted more like Outback and I'll share that recipe when I make it again.
