This is a fast, easy way to grill a tender, tasty filet mignon. The simple rub enhances the steak's flavor, giving it a rich beefiness with a hint of sweet from the brown sugar.

What You'll Need

  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) cumin, ground
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) paprika
  • 1 teaspoons (5 mL) garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (7.5 mL) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) sea salt

How to Make It

  1. Place dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. Coat each steak with spice mixture. Make sure each steak has a good amount of seasoning on it.
  2. Put steaks in a small glass dish, cover, and place in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes.
