Just in time for the Kentucky Derby: my sweet-tea mint rub for mint julep ribs. Full recipe in Best Ribs Ever. Here's that rub:

1 tablespoon iced tea mix (made with sugar, not artificial sweetener)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon dried mint (peppermint or spearmint)
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon coarse salt (kosher or sea)
1 tablespoon black pepper

Mix well and rub on baby backs, spare ribs, or pork shoulder.

Grill on!

How well might it work on grilled pork steak? I just came in from yardwork for lunch, and I just cleaned up a large patch of mint so it'll be good to put it to use.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I'll bet it'd work just fine. Did you give it a try?

Although I have to admit my first thought was, "I wonder how it'd taste on horsemeat." :twisted:
