Rubs are seasoning blends applied to the surface of roasts, steaks and burgers. These quick mixtures add flavor to beef, but do not tenderize.
• Dry rubs consist of herbs, spices and other dry seasonings.
• Paste-type rubs, which are perfect for roasts, contain small amounts of wet ingredients, such as oil, crushed garlic or mustard.
• Rubs can be applied just before cooking or up to 2 hours in advance and refrigerated until cooking time.
• Simply combine the ingredients and apply evenly to all surfaces. Cook beef to desired doneness.
