Spicy Mexican Beef Rub

We are on a beef kick here at Rendezvous. Our go to cut for the grill as of late has been the Tri Tip. Grilling this meat to perfection, however, requires a bit of practice. The best place to start is with a good seasoning.

You can’t go wrong with Traeger’s Santa Maria Tri Tip recipe. But if you want to try your hand at rub-making, give this Mexican Dry Rub a try.

If you like it on beef, try it on chicken and pork too. We love this recipe so much, we keep a small batch of this rub mixed and ready to go in our pantry.

Pro-tip: This rub can pack a punch. If you are keeping several pre-mixed rubs on hand, a label is a must.

If you’re grilling or smoking the Tri Tip, a good char and crust will provide lots of flavor. But this cut is very easy to overcook. When in doubt, use a meat thermometer.

Here’s a helpful “how to” from Traeger on carving up your creation (once you’ve tented it, and let it rest appropriately):
