Mansion Barbecue Spice Mix Recipe

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)

By Dean Fearing, Chef, The Mansion on Turtle Creek, Dallas, TX

This barbecue dry rub spice mix from a popular Texas restaurant is great on grilled steaks. This mixture will be enough for 6 steaks. The recipe is easily multiplied so you can make up a batch to keep on hand. Store it in a cool, dark place in a sealed glass bottle up to 1 month.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 Tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin


Mix paprika, curry powder, chili powder, dry mustard, coriander, pepper, sugar, thyme, salt, cayenne, and cumin together. Rub on beef cuts such as T-bones, tenderloin, top sirloin and top loin (strip). Grill or broil 3 to 4 inches from heat 10 to 13 minutes for medium rare.

Yield: 6 servings

very good, Member Vermontrunner

I omitted the salt because I always do and don't believe it's necessary to the taste at all. It's a good, rich barbecue rub.
