A Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meats.
A Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meats
I wanted to make more to have on hand to use as well as put into jars for stocking stuffers, or little thank you gifts. I came up with this rub last summer. We used it up actually and I had to make more, it is great.

I had read many, many recipes for dry rubs. Each of them had great reviews and seemed wonderful when you think of the combination of ingredients coming together. However, I kept coming back to the same thought, with so much heavy flavor from herbs and heat from dried chilies; how could you taste the meat?

So I came up with my own...............

Our Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meats
by the seat of my pants!

1 T plus 2 t granulated garlic
1 T plus 2 t ground pepper

2 T brown sugar
1/2 t chili powder
1/2 t dry mustard
1 T paprika
dash cayenne
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t basil
1/2 thyme

Place the granulated garlic and ground pepper in the bottom of a 1/2 c measure. fill with salt only to level top. 

Grind your dry herbs in a pestle, or crush in the palm of your hands. 

Combine all ingredients and mix well. 

Store in a cool dry place.

I made double recipes, in order to have some for gifting. And I also made a batch substituting smoked paprika to spice things up.
