hello, friends!
welcome to

a fun blog hop that i co-host with the extremely modest

this week i'm sharing another recipe from

spice-crusted ny strip steaks with mesa grill steak sauce

2 TBS ancho chile powder
1 TBS spanish paprika {i used smoked paprika}
1 TBS ground coriander
1 TBS dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp chile de arbol {i used a combination of chipotle chile powder & cayenne pepper... 
because i didn't have any chile de arbol on hand}
salt & pepper
4 {12 oz} ny strip steaks
2 TBS canola oil
mesa grill steak sauce {recipe follows}

1. to make the spice rub, combine the ancho powder, paprika, coriander, dry mustard, oregano, cumin, chile de arbol, 1 TBS salt & 1 TBS pepper in a small bowl.

2. preheat a grill to medium-high heat or preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. brush both sides of the steaks with the oil & season with salt & pepper. rub one side of each steak with about 2 TBS of the spice mixture.

3. grill the steaks, rub side down, until lightly charred & a crust has formed, 3-4 minutes. flip over the steaks & continue grilling for 5-6 minutes more for medium-rare; the steaks will be bright pink in the middle.

4. spoon some of the mesa grill steak sauce into the center of each of 4 plates & top with the steaks.
