Southwestern Cinnamon Steak Rub

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

The sweet and warm tones of cinnamon enhance the flavor of steak when combined with cumin seed, paprika, oregano and a touch of brown sugar in this Latin-flavored rub.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • In a small dry skillet, toast cumin seeds over medium heat 1-2 minutes or until aromatic. Remove from skillet. Crush seeds using a mortar and pestle, a spice mill, a clean coffee grinder or a rolling pin.
  • Combine brown sugar with all spices. Rub spice mixture evenly on both sides of steaks. Cover loosely and refrigerate 15 minutes
  • Broil or grill steaks until desired doneness.
