Ginger BBQ Spice Tenderloin Steaks
Serves 4

4 1/2 inch thick tenderloin steaks
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

Combine dry ingredients in small bowl. Rub spice mixture generously on both sides of the steaks. Sear the steaks over a high temperature for about 1 minute per side to get nice color. Reduce the heat and continue grilling until done. Depending on the thickness the remaining cooking time can be anywhere from about 2 minutes per side to 5 minutes per side. Always use a thermometer to get the temperature right to about 150. Allow steaks to rest for 5 minutes and plan on the temperature rising about 5 more degrees after you take it off the grill.
