  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 tablespoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Mix all of the steak seasonings together and rub on steaks about 40 minutes before grilling, covering well.
  • Preheat grill to 400 degrees.
  • Grill steaks for 8-10 minutes, flipping once during the grilling.
  • Cook the burgers to the desired doneness. To read the internal temperature of the beef, stick a meat thermometer into the side of the steak. Rare: 125 degrees; Medium Rare: 135 degrees; Medium: 145 degrees; Medium Well: 150 degrees; Well done: 160 degrees.
