Homemade Steak Rub

Been working on getting my recipe book ready for Kindle hence the lack of newsletters. Will be on Amazon next week.

Now that summer has finally arrived here in the Uk, it's time to get the BBQ out! And if steak is on the menu, and whether you're grilling, frying or oven cooking, this homemade seasoning will flavour and season your meat beautifully. Using a blend of spices and dried herbs, it only takes minutes to make!

Makes about 8 tbsp

3 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp smoked paprika powder (or regular paprika)
1 tbsp garlic powder
4 tsp black peppercorns
4 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp cayenne pepper (or chili powder)
2 tsp salt

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the salt, peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds

  • Add to a bowl

  • Stir in the cayenne, mustard, garlic and paprika powders

  • Finally, crumble in the dried thyme and basil and combine thoroughly

That's all there is to it!

Store in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. Use within 2-3 months.

Note: You could dry toast the cumin, peppercorns and coriander seeds before grinding. This really brings out their flavours and aromas!

See the toasting and grinding info down the page for tips on this recommended, easy to do cooking process.

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
