Erik's Weekly Fitness Tip : Finger Lickin' Good BBQ


Erik's Weekly Fitness Tip : Finger Lickin' Good BBQ

bbq steaks

Any time is a good time for BBQ but summertime is the absolute BEST time for BBQ. There is nothing better than grilling up steaks outside while your family plays marco polo in the pool. Because I’m a midwest guy, I am partial to using beef for this recipe, but the BBQ rub really works well with any meat of your choosing, (and if you are a vegetarian, the rub tastes great on grilled veggies too!)

Here is a recipe that is both lean and delicious. Grill up a side of summer veggies with it and you'll be good to go!


T-bone or Porterhouse steaks cut 1 inch thick

BBQ Rub: 

  • 2 Tbs chili powder
  • 2 Tbs packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs ground cumin
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground red pepper


1. Combine BBQ rub ingredients and press evenly on to steaks

2. Grill 11-16 minutes over medium heat on a preheated gas grill, season with salt as necessary.
