Corvin’s Quintessence Spice Mix

Jar of Spices

Hello friends! Corvin here. Looking for a spice mix? Let me tell ya about my very own version of “steak rub”! The quotation marks are there because my spice is more functional than just steak rub. I use it for lots of things, but the general use is for red meat though it goes very well in our <a>home fried ‘taters…</a> Yum!

So without further ado here’s the ingredients for my (now) not-so-super-secret steak rub spice stuff (that you can also put in eggs BTW). Unfortunately I never measure anything. I just fiddle with it until it looks and tastes good, so no batch has ever really been the same.

My main unit of measure is however-much comes in the el-cheapo store brand 99 cent plastic jars in the spice isle. They are usually somewhere right around 2 oz. or so. But this is the main gist of it. Next time I’ll be adding paprika.


  • Chili powder (x2)
  • Black pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Dried onion flakes
  • Garlic powder (½) (garlic gives me terrible heartburn)
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Cayenne pepper (¼)

That’s it! Just dump them all into a larger container (I upcycle my old large size spice containers) and shake the living hell out of it until it looks thoroughly and evenly mixed.

Add more stuff if you like (probably garlic).

There ya go! Try it, and let us know what you think! Add stuff, subtract stuff, and please chime in with your own concoctions! There are no right answers and we’d love to hear from you about your favorite spices!
