Ingredients
1 tablespoon rosemary
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon pepper
salt (as desired)
your cheap beef cut
Directions
1. Lay out cheap beef cut on cutting board.
2. Mix together all the ingredients in the rub and coat beef as desired. The amount of salt you want to use depends on your taste. Let the beef sit on the counter for one hour per inch the meat is thick.
