In a small bowl, mix the rub spices.

Generously sprinkle over the steak and rub it into the surface. Allow to stand at room temperature for 30-45 minutes. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Oil the grill grate. Place steaks, peppers and onions on the grill. Grill meat for 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Remove vegetables when they are done.
