This is hands down my favorite spice rub mix. I use it almost every time we grill steaks. It is a wonderful blend of some of my favorite spices. It keeps well and goes quickly. It is the perfect rub to use on all sorts meats for the grill. It’s barbecue time!
Make your own Spice Rub Mix.
There are ll sorts of spice rubs on the market but I like to make my own. I can tweak and re-tweak the recipe to get just the right flavor that my family and friends love. This simple spice rub takes just minutes to make and costs a fraction as the same amount of a store bought rub.
Use it on steaks, pork chops and roasts. It makes the flavor of the meat pop and gives you a delicious and savory taste that is amazing. My husband really loves it.
The rub is has a wonderful blend of dried herbs with just a hint of heat. It pairs beautifully with steaks, but is also great on pork shops, burgers and chicken parts. I like it so much, I even use it on roast beef!
To make the rub combine these spices together:
- 2 1/2 tbsp of smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp pink sea salt
- 2 tbsp of garlic powder
- 1 tbsp of onion flakes
- 1 tbsp of black pepper
- 1 tbsp of red pepper
- 1 tbsp of dried oregano
- 1 tbsp of ground thyme.
I used freshly ground sea salt and cracked black peppercorns. Using them gives the mix a much fresher flavor from these seasonings. Plus it gives my upper arms a workout! 😉 Mix the spices well in a bowl with a whisk and store in an air tight jar.
To use, sprinkle liberally over both sides of your meat just before grilling. Grill on a barbecue grill until the meat is done to your desired temperature. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
The rub has heat from the red and black pepper, some crunch from the onion flakes, thyme and oregano and the flavor is savory and salty and makes meat taste great!
This spice rub keeps well for months if you store it in an air tight jar.. The recipe makes about 2/3 cup of the spice rub mix.
