Spice Rubbed Steak Salad Square 2

It’s hard to work up the motivation to cook in the summertime–it’s just too darn hot! Luckily this super easy, oh-so-flavorful spice rubbed steak takes just five minutes of prep before throwing in the freezer. Then just grill the meat to your own tastes, slice it and add it to this simple salad and voila–dinner is made! My family loved the steak-salad combination, & the salad was a breeze using pre-chopped & washed lettuce.

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just rub down both pieces of meat, then place them into two bags, cover with remaining marinade, and then throw them right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just thrown directly on the grill.

Assemble ingredients to cook your spice rubber steak: olive oil, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, red pepper flakes, salt and skirt steak.

Here is what you need:

1 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon season salt
2 3-4 lbs skirt steak (or ask the butcher, if you can’t find skirt steak)
 
Cooking day only
romaine lettuce
cherry tomatoes, sliced
croutons
 blue cheese crumbles
blue cheese dressing or your favorite dressing
 

Whisk together brown sugar, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder, season salt, ground pepper, and red pepper flakes with olive oil.

Step 1: Whisk together brown sugar, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder, season salt, ground pepper, and red pepper flakes with olive oil.

Place meat in spice rub and massage spices into steaks.

Step 2: Place steaks in spice rub and massage spices into steaks then place in bags. (If freezing, be sure to label bags ahead of time.)

Marinate steak in bag for at least 30 minutes or longer.

Step 3: Marinate steak in bag for at least 30 minutes or longer, or press out air from bag and freeze.

Grill seasoned steak until cooked.

Step 4: Thaw if frozen. Grill 3-6 minutes per side(depending on how you like it), basting with additional marinade, if desired.

Serve sliced seasoned steak over salad.

Step 5: Let meat rest for 5-7 minutes, then slice thin (use a very sharp knife or an electric knife if you have one) and serve on a bed of lettuce with blue cheese crumbles, croutons, and cherry tomatoes and you favorite salad dressing.

    Are you sure that’s skirt steak? It almost looks like flank? Reason I ask is i just used a bunch of skirt steak and it was quite thin, alot thinner then this was. either way it looks great just kinda confused on that cut.

      Hi Sunny,
      The grocery store was out of skirt steak(which the recipe calls for) but the butcher suggested a piece of meat that was comparable. 🙂

    Hi there, I’m currently collating a list of “freezer friendly” recipes I can make for my partner and I before our baby arrives (3 months to go now!!)
    I was just wondering how long this would last in the freezer – e.g. could it be left in the freezer for a month+ or is it more appropriate to be left for a week or two at most? (I know the meat would be fine, its the marinate I’m not certain on?)

    Thanks for the help 🙂 xxx

      The spice rubbed steak(along with marinade) could be kept in the freezer for at least 1 month. 🙂
