Welcome to another #TripleSBites post! I've already shared a creamy herbed pasta dish, and smoky, saucy meatballs and today I am bringing you STEAK! What better Valentine's day meal then a good steak and potato dinner? This is actually our traditional Valentine's day meal - steaks are a treat at our house, and not something we get to enjoy very often so on special occasion days like Valentine's Day, I cook my husband a juicy steak and often times baked potato skins to accompany.

For this perfect man-pleasing dinner I was able to use two of our sponsor products - the delicious and flavorful Acala Farms Chili Cumin Cottonseed Oil and VooDoo Chef's Red Rub (Description: "chiles highlight this Southwestern classic that will bring magic to every dish!")
My husband picked up 3 gorgeous thick cut top loin steaks and I was excited to cook them up! Being winter we grilled inside using our Cuisinart Griddler, and still got those beautiful sear lines I was hoping for - along with perfectly cooked steaks. I love this quick and simple rub / marinade. With two flavorful ingredients combined, you get a smoky, slightly spicy, and completely deliciously tender steak. The marinade complements the meat without overpowering it.
We served this meal up with a Caesar salad, cheesy garlic rolls, and some baked potato skins. Everyone was full and satisfied after this dinner!
Red Rubbed Steaks
3 large ribeye or top loin steaks
1/4 cup Acala Farms Chili Cumin Cottonseed Oil
1 - 2 TBS VooDoo Chef's Red Rub
- Combine the oil and red rub together in a small bowl. Brush both sides of each steak with marinade and place, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour prior to grilling.
- Heat grill over medium heat, cook steaks to desired doneness.
