This flavorful and versatile One Spoon Dry Rub is quick and easy to mix together and can be used on any kind of meat. Rub, refrigerate, cook and enjoy!
Never buy an expensive preservative filled dry rub again.
I don’t know about you, but searching for a good dry rub to use on your roasted or barbecued meats can be a rather daunting task. If you want to make your own, there are countless recipes out there to choose from. That’s difficult, though, because you never want to blindly follow a recipe not knowing what the end flavor will be. Will it be too salty? Too spicy? Too bland? If you don’t want to make your own, you can always buy a blend from the store. Do you get a cheap brand full of preservatives so that your body won’t decay for years after you die (dramatic, I know… I just hate consuming garbage chemicals). Or do you get a wonderful blend from a fancy store and pay more for the spices than you did the meat? I’ve done both, and will probably continue to do the later because I will spend the money on a good dry rub blend if I can sample it first. For example, I just sampled a raspberry chipotle blend and will most likely breakdown and drop some serious cash on it because I haven’t yet figured out how to reverse engineer it. Yet. But I digress… Let’s talk about this one spoon dry rub.
Its delicious. Its versatile. And it only dirties one spoon, and in my kitchen the fewer dirty dishes, the better. I think you should make it too and then let me know how your dinner turns out.
