Steak Rub – Garlic and Thyme

Spring is here and so starts the beginning of grilling season!

On the farm we love our beef, and I’m always trying something new with our steaks.  This steak rub recipe is easy to make and helps you spice up your steaks if you happen to be in a flavor rut.

Rubs are a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen, mine love using measuring spoons and will stir anything until the sun don’t shine.  Meet my rub assistant, she loves steak, playing in the kitchen sink and her MU Tigers.

To start off we mixed together 1 tablespoon of dried thyme leaves, 2 tablespoons paprika, 3 cloves of garlic, minced and fresh ground pepper.





We then press the rub into the steak and placed them onto our grill.  It was raining outside so I opted to use my indoor grill that you place on the stove.  Grill these to the desired doneness, we prefer medium which is a temperature of 160 degrees.  (I also prefer grilling outside)




While momma was working on grilling the steak, my assistant lost herself in a bottle of paprika.  Good-bye paprika…




Serve the steaks with the Perfect Baked Potato!




Happy Grilling!  Don’t forget to get your kids involved in the cooking process, they love to eat what they cooked!
