|homage to Joe - steak for dinner!|
|cheers to Dad!|
Today I'll share with you the homemade spice mix that Jeff and Ryan made to season our steaks. (Joe was a big fan of Lawry's!)
Savory Steak Seasoning
2 t salt
2 t paprika
1 t freshly ground black pepper
1/2 t chipotle chile pepper (we used McCormick's)
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 cumin (could also use coriander)
(you could add cayenne for more kick)
Mix together and season both sides of your steak. You can do this up to a day in advance (storing in the refrigerator) and the flavors will deepen. Leftover seasoning will keep in an airtight container for a few months. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. This batch was more than enough for our four filets. These would be great on the grill and that is how we began. But it was so cold and windy that we finished inside on a grill pan.
PS The steaks were wonderful; I'm amazed that both our boys can devour their own. And we shared wonderful stories of Papa. A great way to remember him and to begin a season where appreciating each other is so important.
