Farm Momma’s Beef Steak Rub

Steak is a meal we have at our house around 3 times  a week.  As a mom, I LOVE knowing that I am feeding my family beef that was raised on a balance diet, had regular doctor appointments with our veterinarian and was incredibly healthy.  Raising great beef is a team effort!  We have Mr. Farmer who is the main caregiver, the veterinarian who helps keep our animals healthy, our feed nutritionist helps ensure we are feeding our cattle a balanced diet, and an agronomist helps determine the vitality of our pastures.  We keep our cattle on pasture, so it has to perform at its best! 🙂  We can’t forget the Farm Mom who is Mr. Farmers back up, main caregiver of bottle calves, keeps inventory on supplies and record keeper.

Mr. Farmer loved this recipe so much he ate 2 steaks and my 3 farm kids (ages 4 and under) ate 2 steaks combined.  That reminds me that my family of 5 is now a 2 package of steaks per meal family!  Anyways, Mr. Farmer gave me a thumbs up and said, “keep making this one.”  Now folks, THIS is a big deal!  He loves to eat and run.  There isn’t a lot of “honey this is good” or “thanks for lunch babe”.  He comes home, eats fast and is back to it on the farm.  So for him to slow down enough to tell me to keep making something, it’s as good as gold 😉
