Spice rubs are great for when you don't have time to marinate your meat.


  • 1 ½ teaspoons whole black peppercorns, coarsely crushed

  • 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds, coarsely crushed

  • 1 ½ teaspoons whole dill seeds, coarsely crushed

  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, coarsely crushed

  • 1 ½ teaspoons coarse salt

  • 4 bone-in strip steaks (10 to 12 ounces and 1 to 1 ½ inches thick each)

  • Vegetable oil, for grates


  1. Combine peppercorns, coriander, dill, red-pepper flakes, and salt in a small dish. Rub spice mixture evenly over both sides of steaks.

  2. Heat grill to medium-high; lightly oil grates. Place steaks on grill; cover. Cook, turning once, until meat is desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium-rare.

Cook's Notes

The spice rub can be doubled or tripled; keep the extra in an airtight container.
