Steak Rub {Gifts in a Jar ~ Day Three}

Are some men difficult to buy for, or is it just me? Well, maybe they aren’t so hard to buy for – but I’m not a big fan of forking out the money for power tools for all of the men in my life. ;)

If someone on your list loves to grill – this may be a great gift for them. It’s small and simple, so if it’s not quite enough, you may want to pair it with some grilling equipment or even a package of steaks. (I don’t, however,  recommend wrapping steaks and putting them under the tree to be opened three days later. That idea totally stinks. Literally.)

Steak Rub

3 Tablespoons sea salt
6 teaspoons paprika
4 1/2 teaspoons minced onion
6 teaspoons oregano
3 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

Mix all ingredients together in a half pint jar.

To use Steak Rub:  Rub 1 teaspoon of spice mix onto both sides of a 1 1/2 pound steak. Grill or broil as desired.

If you’re gifting this mix, you’ll want to be sure and attach a tag including the mixing and baking instructions. Want a fun tag to use for your gift? Download Your Free Gifts In A Jar Tags Here!

    Agreed! Great stocking stuffer for my dad and uncle! Quick question, can I substitute onion powder for the minced onion and if so, what do you think the amount would be? Thanks so much for sharing this!


    Laura Reply:

    Yes, I believe that substitution should work – maybe sub it one for one since the onion powder is pretty concentrated, just tiny. :) That’s just a guess.

    Question…The gift tags, do you buy special paper?


    Laura Reply:

    I just print them on regular paper and cut them and glue stick them on. But you can buy a sheet of sticker paper and cut them/stick them that way too. :)
