What cut of steak is the best for dry rubbing?

This Texas Roadhouse steak seasoning recipe will make for a delicious steak no matter the cut you use. However, we do recommend a thicker cut of steak, about one inch thick.

The New York strip steak is the preferred steak, but ribeye steaks will do nicely as well. The NY strip is a wonderful cut of steak to work with for dry rubs. It is sturdy and flavorful and can hold rubs well. Be generous and use enough steak seasoning to coat both sides of your steak.
