Nothing is quite so lovely as the smell of steak being grilled. At least that is how I felt last night. Jackson had been begging me for a few days to cook on the grill. I was finally able to whip something up out there. I can feel summer creeping in. It is cooler again today. But these warm days we keep getting are enough to hold me over. And any colder temps beat the subzero ones we had a month ago!


Simple Steak Rub

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • Fresh black pepper to taste. I did around 10 twists

Combine all the seasonings in a small bowl and mix well so they are blended.

I used Filet Mignon for our steak last night. I had two and I cut each in half lengthwise, so they were thinner. Then I tenderized them with this handy tool received for Christmas, the Steak Ninja. Then I sprinkled some of the rub over each steak. I rubbed in into the meat. Flip the steaks over, sprinkle more seasoning, and rub in. I ended up having a little bit leftover. You could use all of it, I am always cautious with my amount of seasoning right now because of the tiny taste buds that eat our dinners. I error on the side of caution.

I let them sit for around 5 minutes while I prepared the veggies for grilling and got the grill started.

Grill to your liking.

They turned out delicious without using ever last speck of rub. To me they almost had a sweetness to them. They smelled amazing on the grill. The meat kind of melted in my mouth.

I am going to go ahead and post the potato recipe as well. Look around for that if you want something yummy to accompany this steak.
