‘Cowboy up’ Spicy Steak Rub Recipe

Spicy Steak Rub Recipe, Paleo SteakI’m not a huge red-meat fan, but my husband is a blood-sucking carnivore, so I try to throw him a bone — pun intended — every once in a while for special occasions.

This steak dinner — along with an obnoxiously large box of chocolates and his favorite craft brew 6-pack — was my Valentine’s Day present to him.

This steak is done the way he loves it and the way I would guess a true cowboy would make it — with a little sweetness and a lot of spice. If you’re not a fan a spice, you can omit the cayanee to tame it down a bit, but I would honestly suggest just trolling for another steak marinade or rub, cause this one isn’t for the amateur spice-lover. You’ve been warned.

This should be cooked based on how you like your steak. I always cook it to medium — about to 5 to 7 minutes on each side for a 1 1/2-inch thick piece of meat.
