Steak Spice Rub

1 Tbsp dried minced Garlic
1 Tbsp dried mined Onion
1 Tbsp Salt (Sea Salt or Kosher)
1 Tbsp coarse ground Black Pepper
1/2 Tbsp Fennel Seeds
1 tsp Coriander Seeds
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp dried Thyme, crushed
1 tsp dried Rosemary, crushed
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/4 tsp Caraway Seeds (optional)


  • In a mortar and pestle, combine the Salt, Pepper, Fennel, Coriander, Thyme, Rosemary, and Caraway; grind to release the oils.
  • Combine with the remaining ingredients and mix well.

NOTES: This is a great spice rub for Grilling and Broiling. I also use it over roast or steamed vegetables. You can utilize it with Butter and give a kick to baked potatoes. I’ve even sprinkled it on steamed shrimp.

The benefit of making your own Steak Rub is that you can control the Salt–and you may choose to omit the salt altogether, and still have plenty of flavor. The important part of releasing the flavor is the Mortar and Pestle which release the oils.

To store this, keep it in an air-tight container that does not allow light, and store in a cool dark place. It will keep for a while… but not years! (Old spices do get bland).
