Dry Rub for a Skirt Steak

If you have been reading my Facebook page, you read that my family and I had skirt steak for New Year's dinner. It is a tough cut of meat, but you can easily make it very tasty with a little work and a great dry rub.

Many have asked what sort of dry should be used to bring out the flavor of this cut of meat. Here's the recipe that I used.

1/4 cup paprika
3 tablespoons coarse salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

This recipe is for a 3lbs skirt steak. I had over 6lbs at our meal. This recipe is a favorite of mine and is what I would call a "Go To" rub. I have used it on pork and chicken.
