I'm just (yes, just) discovering that a good rub can go on almost anything. Eggs, yes. Cottage cheese, yes. Pizza, yes. Veggies, uh, yes. One of the best things to come down the pike since bacon.:clap:

I was gonna say yogurt, but then I thought that might actually be pretty good.

A good steak.

Rub has no business anywhere near a good steak. :tsk:

I would disagree on that one. The Rub Co.'s Santa Maria Style and Oakridge BBQ's Santa Maria go great on steaks. They're both rubs after all.

I stand by my opinion.

There are two things you can do to easily ruin a good steak.

1. Overcook it
2. Add anything other than S&P and maybe, just maybe ....a hint of garlic powder.

Nothing against The Rub Co.'s or Oakridge's products, but save the Santa maria style rubs for tri tip or other roast type meats.

Insert: IMHO, YMMMV and any other appropriate disclaimer here.

I use rub on a lot of things! But then again, I don't use the same rub on everything. But one thing I don't think I'd like rub on is a cake... :)

I will definitely grant you the point here. But, since I can't afford USDA prime, I'll continue to ruin my choice cuts.:becky:

Besides, the SM is mostly S&P & garlic anyway.

Not a thing as far as I'm concerned, put a little of the RIGHT rub on anything. Try a little SM Cherry on watermelon, unbelievable.

On a cheap steak, sure, rub it. On a choice or prime ribeye, no farking way for this guy. :cop:

I think what Guerry is suggesting, is that if you mix up your ideal ratio of salt, pepper and a little garlic powder, and put that on a steak, it is a rub and is every bit as good as putting those ingredients separately. And you can buy these rubs.

I'd be careful putting any rub with too much cayenne on tacos... :shock:

Can't think of much, I do take my milk and oreo's sans rub though.

If I ever get too lazy to put salt and pepper on a steak without buying it pre-mixed, I'll be too lazy to cook the steak.

This is why I do not own such rubs. But they do exist, and folks buy them.

Folks also buy those pre-loaded potatoes behind the butcher counter.

Especially if you pop it in bacon fat...

Eggs... Tried putting my favorite rub in scrambled eggs and it just didn't work for me. Your experience may vary, that's why they make chocolate and vanilla.

Well whatever you do, keep the rub out of your beer supply!
