Grill Master’s Guide to Steak : 10 Steak Rubs with Only 3 Ingredients!

Hello! I love trying out new fun ways to make food taste great — naturally! With my Grill Master’s Guide posts, I have been trying out all sorts of ways to make grilling more fun and tasty this summer using ingredients most of us all have sitting right in our pantry!

There is just something more fun about creating your own natural rubs versus going out and buying a bottle of cheap seasoning with a bunch of preservatives or dousing your steak in A-1.  Of course, this never stops me from trying out new PD-approved products from time to time.

Here are 10 different steak rubs — some with only 3 ingredients!

The ingredients listed in the rubs below are enough for 4 steaks.  These can be doubled or made into a huge batch and that can be stored in the pantry in mason jars!
