Summertime Rubbed Steak

I love to make this one in the summertime.  I think that it portrays everything that a great summer is.  It is warm like the sun, spicy like the heat,  and sweet like the nights.  By using a rub instead of a marinade, you are able to really penetrate the meat with the seasonings.  There is not lubricant to come in between the two.  And generally, I feel like it is an insult to the chef when you use steak sauce, but it is a wonderful enhancement to this steak.

4 lb. of sirloin steak
1 tsp. of paprika
3/4 tsp. of chili powder
2 tsp. of brown sugar
1/4 tsp. of garlic salt
1/4 tsp. of ground cayenne pepper
1/4 cup of A.1. Bold-n-Spicy steak sauce

-Combine the paprika, chili powder, brown sugar, garlic salt and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; rub well into both sides of the sirloins.  Place in a shallow dish, cover and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.  Preheat grill to a high setting.  Grill steaks about 3-4 minutes on each side (depending on thickness) for a medium temperature.  Serve with steak sauce.  Serves 4-6.  Enjoy!
