Copycat Texas Roadhouse Steak Rub

Isn’t grilling the best? Honestly, we do it all year round, but grilling in the summer is something you just can’t beat! We get a lot of snow in New Hampshire, so winter grilling means wheeling the grill so that it sits right where we open the deck door, this way we don’t have to trudge through snow, or shovel our way to the grill to get to it in the winter. That’s probably why summer grilling is a special treat for us. 😉


  • 1.5 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic bag and seal it tightly. Shake it to thoroughly combine all ingredients.
  2. Generously cover each side of the steak with the seasoning and let it rest for about 40 minutes. This allows the salt to penetrate through the surface (through osmosis) and actually helps break down the muscle fibers, which results in a more tender meat. During this time, the liquid that initially surfaced has time to reabsorb, which makes the meat juicer.
