Properly storing your steak rub seasoning is essential to preserve its flavor and potency. Here are some guidelines on how to store it:

  1. Airtight Container: Transfer the steak rub seasoning to an airtight container. This could be a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid or a resealable plastic or metal container. The airtight seal will prevent air from getting in and keep the spices fresh.
  2. Cool and Dark Place: Store the container in a cool, dry, and dark place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Heat and sunlight can cause the spices to lose their flavor and potency more quickly.
  3. Labeling: Label the container with the name of the seasoning and the date of preparation. This will help you keep track of its freshness and prevent confusion with other spice blends.
  4. Avoid Moisture: Keep the steak rub away from moisture, as it can cause the spices to clump together and spoil. Avoid storing it near the stove, dishwasher, or any other area with high humidity.
  5. Whole Spices vs. Ground Spices: If your steak rub includes whole spices, such as chile de arbol, it may retain its flavor for longer. In this case, you can consider grinding the spices just before use to preserve their freshness.
  6. Shelf Life: While spices don’t spoil, they do lose their flavor over time. For the best results, try to use your steak rub seasoning within six months to a year. After that period, the flavors may begin to fade.
