Granny's Spice Rub

Granny's Spice Rub

Handiane 1

"This is a rub you can use on basically anything from chicken to toast for a mild zest! This rub is great on grilled meats such as steak, pork, chicken, or turkey. It's also ideal for stir-fried or steamed vegetables. My favorite way to use this rub is to rub some on sourdough bread and toast until the bread is browned and crunchy. "

Excellent. This is wonderful on baked chicken. Loads of flavor.

What is garlic pepper & what if you don't have any?

This is awesome! I smoked 10 lbs of riblets and needed a rub for them. This was the best I have ever used. The flavor was delicate, which allows the smoke flavor to not be overpowered. Also,...

Add salt to this recipe! I added about 2 tbsp of salt and it was great. I put it on the chicken and let it sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Very flavorful.

I tripled the recipe because I had my own dried rosemary and sage to use up. I also added 2 TBSP of dried, chopped, lemon zest that I had on hand. Very versatile recipe. Not only can be used as ...

This was just fine on a boneless leg of lamb. No heat, which my wife liked and plenty of taste which we all liked. I agree that it needs salt.

Fantastic on toast with some olive oil.

Used this on baked chicken. It's very traditional and inoffensive, but it feels like it needs something more. 4.5 out of 5.
