This is a recipe to make the steak seasoning rub, very similar to that used by the Outback Steakhouse restaurants. The Outback Steakhouse chain consists of more than 600 Australian-themed restaurants in 47 US states and several countries, including Australia. The restaurants serve a mouthwatering selection of original dishes, from steaks and hamburgers to pasta and salads, with a tempting range of appetisers.
