These three ingredients are the LeBron/Wade/Bosh of the rub world.
You haven't tasted ketchup until you've tasted *homemade* ketchup! At about 1/3 the cost of the brand names (you wouldn't actually even think of using a generic brand, would you?!), there is no reason why you or your family or crew should suffer through life without this stuff! It keeps well in the 'fridge for a few weeks, but rarely is still around by then! This recipe makes enough to about fill an emptied (and washed out!) 32 ounce squeeze bottle from the store-bought stuff.
A mustard-flavored, very tender steak. Smart chefs have used mustard to flavor food for centuries--the Romans used it as a glaze on wild boar. Inspired by madcow's "Mean Mr. Mustard (Steak)."
An amazingly tender steak needs the lightest of flavor boosts. Just like a pitcher with 95-mph heat maybe needs just a bit of an off-speed pitch. Mix mustard, ginger and sugar for the simplest of spice rubs.
