Old Bay Steak Rub

I usually marinade my steaks, but when I came across this Old Bay steak rub recipe, I had to give it a try. I love Old Bay seasoning. The combination of spices is great on crab cakes. Fantastic in crab boils. And divine on steaks. Just sprinkle any cut of steak with the rub a few minutes before grilling.

This Old Bay steak rub does contain a bit of brown sugar. Sugars will burn if placed over direct heat for any length of time. I prefer to reverse sear my thicker steaks, which prevents that from happening.

I’m a borderline Old Bay addict. Also try my crab legs, peel ‘n eat shrimp, and wings, all seasoned with Old Bay.
