A fabulous spice rub can really liven up the flavor of grilled meats. This one is a classic that will have everyone oohing and aahing (whether or not you tell them how simple it is to make is up to you).
Cook Time 25 minutes

Cuisine American
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper or use ½ tsp. chili powder if cayenne is too spicy
  • 1 1/2 lbs. New York strip or top loin steaks


  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (or you can cook the steaks indoors on a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat).
  • In a small bowl, combine all of the spices, and sprinkle and rub the mixture over both sides of the steaks (leave one steak plain or very lightly seasoned if you have picky eaters).
  • When the grill is hot, cook the steaks for 3 – 5 minutes per side, depending on how well done you like them.
  • Slice the steak into thin strips to serve it. Serve it immediately or refrigerate it for up to 3 days.


Do Ahead or Delegate: Prepare the spice rub, rub on the steak and refrigerate, or fully prepare and refrigerate the steak.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Use both cayenne and chili powder for the spice rub.  Serve the steak with lime wedges.
Tip: To get beautiful grill marks on your meat, don’t move it at all before flipping it.  To get crosshatches, rotate the steak ¼ turn before flipping it.
