Dry Rubs Help Enhance the Flavor of Steak and Other Meat

Here's the rub. Grilled and roasted meats taste great with just a dash of salt and pepper, but if you're looking to spice things up, dry rubs can add a lot of flavor.

When choosing a rub, consider the thickness of the meat. Rubs with big flavors work best with thicker cuts, while you might want to stick with milder flavors for thinner cuts. Experiment with your favorite herbs and spices to create your own signature rub, or try one of these combinations.

Salt, parsley, dried garlic , crushed red pepper, dried tomato
