This is a recipe for a steak rub that I made up last night. It came out pretty well and everyone enjoyed it. It slightly caramelises the surface of the steak infusing it with herby goodness and after you enjoy that flavour a nice kick of heat comes in the after taste.
- 1/4 handful fresh sage, finely chopped
- 1/2 handful fresh thyme, finely chopped
- 1 handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Mix it all together in a bowl, rinse off your steaks and apply liberally to each side about half an hour before you plan to start cooking. These quantities should make enough for 4 small steaks.
