This goes beautifully with the Blackbery Chipotle Steak Sauce. It has a smoky chocolate flavor that is brightened with the citrus kick of cardamom. Smoked paprika and a pinch of chili powder round it out nicely.
Steak rubs help to add a nice crusty sear the the steak and seal in flavor as well as adding flavor of their own. This one is quite dark and you will need to check your internal temperature often to keep it from over cooking.
This is super easy to make.
You can even make it in a large amount and keep it in a cool, dry place. That way you will have it on hand whenever you like.
