Simple Steak Rub Recipe

15-minute recipe Serves 4
Blend a crumbled beef bouillon cube with olive oil for a pre-grilling rub that enhances the flavour of your favourite cut of steak. Tip: The salt in the bouillon cube will help tenderize the meat, while the extra flavour will add to the final product. Tip: Let your steak rest before slicing to allow the juices to redistribute evenly.

Transfer steak to a cutting board, let rest 5 minutes, then thinly slice to serve.
