Grilled T-Bone Steaks with BBQ Rub

This could be called beef at its best. A simple rub including chili powder, garlic and brown sugar adds that special touch.

Ingredients

  • 2 to 4 beef T-Bone or Porterhouse Steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 2 to 4 pounds)
  • Salt
BBQ Rub:
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

Instructions

  • 1. Combine BBQ Rub ingredients; press evenly onto beef steaks.

  • 2. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 15 to 19 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove bones and carve steaks into slices, if desired. Season with salt, as desired.


  • Test Kitchen Tips To broil, place steaks on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 15 to 20 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once.
