Rubs are a wonderful way to add flavor to meat when you don't have time to marinate. Meat lovers will be in their glory when they see (and smell!) these steaks sizzling on the grill.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon paprika

"I cut back a bit on the red pepper and paprika so it wasn't real spicy.

My husband and I really enjoyed this. So nice to live in California where we can barbecue in February!"
