The Best Dry Rub

Ingredients and Variations

SWERVE:  This sugar replacement is a natural sweetener made from fruit. It is lower on the glycemic index, meaning that it is good for those on a keto or low carb diet. If Swerve can’t be found at the local store, then substitute brown sugar. However, this will not be keto if this substitute is made.

THE SPICES: There are a lot of traditional spices in this rub. However, these spices are in the perfect combination and yield fantastic results.

Recipe Tips

To be successful with rubs there are a couple of points to remember.

  • First, remember to pat the meat dry. If the meat is wet, then the spices won’t adhere properly to the meat.
  • Secondly, a little olive oil drizzled on the meat before rubbing will also help the spices coat evenly.
  • Store the rub like any other spice. Keeping it in a shaker will come in handy for sprinkling.
  • Like most spices, it should be kept in a cool, dry location.
  • Adding a few dried beans or rice to the spice will keep it from clumping.
  • It will keep in the cupboard for a year. But remember, spices tend to lose their potency and flavor over time.
