This Citrus Steak Rub makes the best steak seasoning! With lemon, lime and orange zests, this is a dry rub that you will use over and over again.


  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 2 pound Certified Angus Beef® brand flank steak


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine lemon, lime and orange zest with kosher salt, white pepper and garlic.
  2. Massage onto flank steak. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes-24 hours. Like most cuts of meat, longer is better.
  3. When ready to prepare, heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill on indirect heat for 4-8 minutes on each side depending on desired level of doneness and thickness of your steak. For medium-rare, use a meat thermometer and check for 125 degrees.
  4. Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.
