The ingredients are simple, but be aware of some serious yellow fingers after this 😉
- 4 parts of sweetened paprika powder
- 4 parts of union powder
- 2 parts of garlic powder
- 2 parts of whole black pepper grains
- 1 part of clove buds
- 1 part of rosemary (dried)
- 1 part of safran or kurkuma herbs. ( I used a mix, about half of both)
grill up the pepper grains and the clove buds slightly and put them in a grinder (I have an electric one, but a manual based mortar would work as well….), also include the dried rosemary and the safran wires.
Grind them down until a powder and add and stir in all other powders. There. You’re done. Easy, but very colouring, and strong in taste. Great mix for paella!
Although there are many stories and different quantities, I’ve managed to start to enjoy the simplicity and versatility of the following rub. I’ve initially made it for spare ribs, but it’s also great with some burgers or even on chicken, although don’t use too much.
How to make this gorgeous and easy rub, you ask? Well, let me surprise you.
What you need is the following spices.
- 5 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons of paprika powder. The mild one, please….
- 3 tablespoons of sea salt
- 2 tablespoons of grounded pepper, preferably the lemon kind
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder.
Once you read this, I’m sure you can figure out the name of the rub itself. Love it!
Of course, you can choose any amount you desire, just keep the differentiation in the amounts the same. 5-4-3-2-1 could be kilos, pounds, stone, tons, or whatever other unit you use wherever you’re from. Enjoy!
This rub creates the perfect flavor for a good burger.
Mix it all up well in the right amounts and you can even create a nice premixed batch!
- 2 teaspoons of paprika powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
- 1 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dark brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper
This will create around 2 tablespoons of ‘magic dust’, but I’ll make some larger amounts for later use as well!
Just sprinkle on the burgers (both sides) before grilling.
Worth a try! I know I will!
This rub creates roughly 0,25 litre. (TS = tablespoon, but any unit will do)
2 TS of smoked paprika powder
1 TS of regular paprika powder
2 TS of Salt
3 TS of regular sugar
2 TS of brown sugar
1 TS of grounded cumin
1 TS of chili powder
1 TS freshly grounded pepper
1/2 TS cayenne pepper
1 TS of onion powder
1 TS of garlic powder
1 TS of celery salt
1 TS of dried oregano
Game on! Enjoy!
What to do, what to make? To answer that question, the procedure in our house is rather simple. I go to the freezer, open the meat drawer and just take a look at what I’ve got and what feels good. Well. The first thing I saw, were some nice meaty rib racks.
Choice is made, it will be ribs. Now to figure out how to cook them this weekend. For that, I decided to open my new ‘bible’ from Steven Raichlen, which is a guru in my opinion. Pretty soon I had a lot of ideas about a lot of meat, but I was still looking for the ribs, in that case. ….
