Pinterest Food Finds. Texas Roadhouse style

this was probably the HUGEST hit of Pinterest foods, I made steak with a Texas Roadhouse rub, the rolls, and butter.  Here are the recipes ALL in one day:

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Serves: 24 Rolls
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon Yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 1 ¼ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, melted
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 cups Flour
  1. Bring the milk to a boil. Remove it from heat and let it reduce to room temperature.
  2. Mix the milk, yeast, and honey in a small bowl until well combined. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the butter, the milk mixture, egg, and 2 cups of flour. Mix slowly until smooth. (Use a mixer with a dough hook if you have one, otherwise it works by hand.) Gradually add the remaining 2 cups of flour and mix until a dough has formed.
  4. Add salt, and mix/knead for 8 minutes. Then drop the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few more minutes.
  5. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and drop the dough inside. Cover the bowl (plastic wrap or a damp cloth works) and let it rise for an hour in a warm place.
  6. Cut into 24 squares of even size and place on the cookie sheets. Cover them and let them rise for about 40 minutes, until doubled in size. 

  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown.
  8. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush the top of the rolls.

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Butter
Serves: 8 Tablespoons
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 & ½ Tbsp honey
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  1. Let butter warm to room temperature. Mix with other ingredients until well-combined. You can briskly whisk with a fork, or use a hand-held electric mixer. Refrigerate until ready to use and enjoy!

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Steak Rub
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Combine all ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic bag and seal it tightly. Shake it to thoroughly combine all ingredients.
  2. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bottom of the bag and pour the contents into a spice container.
  3. Generously cover each side of the steak with the seasoning and let it rest for about 40 minutes. This allows the salt to penetrate through the surface (through osmosis, oohhhh…) and actually helps break down the muscle fibers, which results in a more tender meat. During this time, the liquid that initially surfaced has time to reabsorb, which makes the meat juicer.
  4. Once the grill is nice and hot, place the steak(s) on and cook for 4-5 minutes, until it’s browned and slightly charred. Flip it over and cook for the following additional time:
  5. -5 minutes: Medium Rare
  6. -7 minutes: Medium
  7. -10 minutes: Medium- Well
